I saw the predictions below for the best color for last year, but they indicated that there were particular weather conditions effecting the best color times. Can anyone suggest a good time to go this year if we want to see lots of color? We are thinking of going on HAL Massdam, probably Montreal to Boston since the best color seems to be farther north earlier. Also which ports and which excursions in which ports would give us the best color viewing?

I dont think you can predict anything this far out. It all depends on the amount of rain fall, summer temps, how quickly it begins to get cooler, etc. We are going October 2nd and have been told that may even be a little bit early, but we shall see.
I did a little bit of searching and found out this: Peak color begins in early September in northwestern Maine, then moves south and east until it ends in late October in Connecticut and Rhode Island. October is the prime color season for the majority of the region.
I am sure it will be gorgeous for all of us going to this part of the country!
