21 Amazing New England Waterfalls to Visit Now

Enjoy the summer while you still can.

Sorry, TLC, you may be the greatest girl group ever, but our mission this month is to go chase some waterfalls. Fortunately, we don’t need to travel to the jungles of Costa Rica or the mountains of Hawaii to find gorgeous cascades—there are stunning falls right here in New England. Here are 21 to chase this summer, in no particular order.
