Consider this your guide to every leaf peeping hotspot in the northeast.

Whether you’re on the hunt for rare maples or just out for the pretty colors, New England’s last party before the long winter is undeniable Insta-candy. 


This one you can, and should, do by bike. Rent a pair of wheels at Newport Bicycle then start out on the Bellevue Avenue side of the Ocean Drive Loop, an 11-mile waterfront route that passes through the American yellowwoods, European beeches, and stately mansions of Bellevue before opening out onto Ocean Drive, offering dual views of Rhode Island Sound on your left and jaw-dropping colors on your right. End at the equally scenic Newport Harbor, where you might pull up to Belle’s Café in the Shipyard for coffee and yacht views.
