Leaf peeping season is beginning to peek into view in northern Maine, and the fall leaves will be ablaze upstate before you know it. Central Park and Prospect Park are plenty pretty, but you may want to rent a car and go outside the five boroughs for truly spectacular views before it's all over.

By October, you're in peak leaf peeping season in the Berkshires. This Egremont, Massachusetts house would be a great place to spend a weekend away next month. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and beamed ceilings throughout. A recent renovation makes it look fresh and clean.
