Happy First Day of Fall! Welcome to the season of crisp autumn weather & explosions of color in forests & towns across North America. I love to go on weekend road trips and see all the greens, yellow, oranges and reds on tree tops. Taking the time to enjoy fall like this is worth every second! If you’re like me and love the changing of the leaves I’m sharing a list of my 4 favorite fall foliage places to visit in the U.S. and some tips to use to track the fall weather/foliage changes near you. Keep reading below so you can start planning your fall road trip this season.
Whether you go for the aspen trees or Rocky Mountains, Colorado is gorgeous during the fall. Also, if you’re in the Denver area it’s the perfect time of year to try all their local coffee shops! Below are some things you could do.
Since North Carolina is a bit further south than most fall foliage places in the north the leaves don’t start turning colors as quickly. Which only means you can get your fall fix longer lasting in the season. And for me (living in the south) it’s closer to home! Below are some things you could do.
There’s nothing quite like fall in New England. Vermont is nothing short of magical with a burst of fall colors everywhere! With so many different small towns to drive though and apple orchards to pick from this is a wonderful fall foliage destination. Below are some things to do.
NYC: Sleepy Hollow
Whether you’re going into the city to see the fall foliage or upstate New York, you will not be disappointed. Central Park is absolutely gorgeous in the fall with its array of colors and leaves on the ground. However, the town of Sleepy Hollow is the place to be for not only fall foliage but the best fall activities. After all, haven’t you seen the halloween movie Sleepy Hollow? Below are some things you could do.
- Walk through central park and see the mall (the long tree path pictured below), bethesda terrace, bow bridge and Loeb Boathouse.
- Take a drive to Sleepy Hollow and explore the town.
