Commuter Rail employees know our system best, so we started “Destination Station”- the official Commuter Rail Staff Picks program.
Since we are entering peak fall foliage in Massachusetts we asked, “which spot on the network has the best views for fall foliage?”
📍 Line: Fitchburg 🚆Stations: Lincoln, Concord, West Concord, and Wachusett
The Fitchburg line runs through areas of Massachusetts that are a leaf peepers’ dream. Take a trip out to Lincoln, Concord, West Concord, Littleton, or all the way to Wachusett to see all the fall colors.
If you’re traveling on the weekend, hop on/hop off at several stations on the line with $10 weekend tickets. Get unlimited both Sat. + Sun. Plus, kids 11 and under always ride free.
What other spots got votes for the best views for foliage from the train?
📍 Line: Newburyport/Rockport 🚆Station: Manchester
“Right next to a small shopping center offers coffee, a bank, a pharmacy…right in the center of the high street. Everything is within walking distance from [the Manchester Commuter Rail Station]. Beautiful ocean view and rustic style restaurants – [it’s] a peaceful place.” – Commuter Rail Assistant Conductor
