Burlington, VT is gorgeous that time of year. Also Acadia National Park in Maine. If you don’t mind a bit of cooler weather, Newport, RI is really pretty, but to me that is best in the summer, but you could get lucky with some warm enough weather in October. Portland, ME is great too, great restaurants and breweries. Boston is still pretty dead right now, so I’m not sure it’s worth it. Less foot traffic, but way less to keep you busy.

Also I’ve never been to Martha’s Vineyard, but heard it’s beautiful!

This gal/guy hit the nail on the head. I took a trip through every state in the northeast and top picks were: Maine- Bar Harbor, Portland, and Acadia National Park, Precipice Trail Burlington, Vermont Newport Road Island Cliff Walk & coast of Newport We also loved Boston, but this year, I would probably stick with the above!

The more mountainous regions make more of the changing colors

What salary did you find that you no longer had to worry about money?

Used to spend all my weekends with this guy I was seeing last year. Things have been so rocky this year, we barely meet. He wants to take some time off and concentrate on himself and being more active before committing to anything. He has literally filled all his weekends with sports and meetups there after. He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.

Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.

I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm. All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?

Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
