All the Leaves Are Falling: Charter Flights to Colonial America
For those in cities like Boston and Philadelphia last fall, the ads were the stuff of cooler talk: People in the south were paying money to have real leaves boxed and sent in the mail. But given their earthy, sun-kissed smell, the bold yet gentle tinges of yellows, oranges and reds, perhaps it’s not so surprising. Perhaps seeing the leaves changes is such a simple yet beautiful thing, it’s worth visiting first-hand via charter flights that will take you to the breathtaking trees and fields of New England this fall.
