10 Places To See The Leaves Change Colors This Fall

The best places to see fall foliage. Period.

1.New Hampshire's Lakes Region

You should head here between late September to late October. The leaf season here is long due to not being too close to the coastal winds that rip the leaves from their trees. 

2. Southeast Pennsylvania

Southeastern Pennsylvania has miles of beautiful farm land, woods, and backroads the just look flat out beautiful in the fall.  

3. New York's Adirondack Mountains

Upstate New York is one of the most beautiful places in the entire country. There are so many different ecosystems here, from lakes to mountains, that offer a variety of foliage viewing opportunities.

4. Western Maine

 This is probably the most remote location on the list, but that's what makes it worth it. You get to experience all the vibrant colors of fall without being bothered.

5. Vermont's Green Mountains

Vermont is the country's largest producer of Maple Syrup. You know why? Because Vermont has tons of maple trees. The other great thing about maple trees? They have some of the boldest colors come fall. 

6. Leavenworth, Washington

Leavenworth is really cool as it's a Bavarian themed town. At the end of September you have the Autumn Leaf festival and Fridays's and Saturday's of October you have Oktoberfest. So, you can drink beer and look at awesome foliage.

7. The Enchantments, Washington

You'll see a ton of yellows and oranges here, they stick out in stark contrast the the grey mountains of the area. It's a sight to be seen! 

8. Glacier National Park, Montana

Of course we had to include one of our favorite National Parks on this list. Glacier is beautiful year round, but it's even better during the fall. 

9. Columbia River Gorge (Washington and Oregon)

Pretty much anywhere in the Columbia River Gorge is going to be beautiful this time of year. Ask anyone you know from the PNW, they'll tell you. 

10. Great Smoky Mountains (Tennessee and North Carolina)

John Denver sang about the Blue Ridge Mountains up in West Virginia, but we'd say they're even better down in North Carolina. There's a reason it's America's most visited National Park.
