Logo   June in New England
Travel early in the month if you can. Days are long, crowds are small, prices are lower—but the weather is unpredictable.


In June, New England's weather is at its most unpredictable.

On an early June weekend I have sat sweating on a porch in the open air, iced drink in hand, only to huddle in front of a fireplace the following weekend.

You never know!

Though the weather is changeable, it is usually fine for travel if you're adaptable.

Early June is not very busy in New England's vacation areas because most children are still in school.

But when school ends in mid-June, many families head out for their summer vacations at the beach in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, or in the mountains of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Accommodations, campgrounds, and other services are fairly well occupied on weekends in early June, but are busy most days of the week by late June.
