Logo   Spring in New England
A disappointment? You never know...until it happens. It may come and go on a Tuesday.



Coming late and staying only briefly, spring in New England is often a disappointment.

The week or two of spring days in April, May and June are a delight, with cool temperatures in the evening and just the perfect degree of warmth during the day, in bright, clear sun.

But the delight of spring may be so brief that New Englanders joke "Oh, spring...yeah, last year it was on a Tuesday."

In the countryside the thaw brings "mud time," the period between frost and spring planting.

Mud time is the slowest season for tourist facilities, coming after ski season and before summer warmth and school vacations bring out the city folk.

Thus many country inns, resorts, and amusements close for a few weeks in April.
