Avoid rush hour this fall foliage season and go leaf peeping by cruise rather than car. Cunard is offering a seven-night New England and Canada cruise aboard Queen Mary 2 that departs October 25 and sails roundtrip from New York. Along the way, you’ll visit highlights of the Eastern Seaboard, including Newport, with its beautiful beaches and luxurious mansions; Boston, for a taste of history; and Saint John, for land- and water-based active pursuits. Fares start at $1,210 per person for an inside cabin — not cheap, but not a bad rate for Cunard’s flagship.
