Do you plan a special drive to view fall colors?

‘Tis the season! Well, for fall colors, at least. Fall colors are peaking just about everywhere across North America right now and they sure are beautiful!

Do you plan a special drive to view fall colors? If so, do you usually plan a special drive every year or just this year or some years? If you have a favorite fall-color drive, would you share it with us in the comments? We won’t tell, we promise!

I live just outside of Adirondack park in upstate NY. I can look out my window and see the beautiful colors but I also camp about 5 miles from here for a few days where I’m surrounded by colorful trees.

I’m in New Hampshire. For part of the months of September and October, it’s absolutely beautiful here. I’m partial to the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains, the Mount Sunapee Region and parts of the lakes region, especially the areas that look over Lake Winnipesaukee. I was out the last two weekends, photographing the beautiful colors!

I’m in western Maine with awesome views–no need to travel-just sit on my front porch!

We live on the western side of a ridge that is part of the western foothills of the Appalachians. We look outside (from our house) to see the changing colors of hundreds of trees. So, no special trip to see fall colors.

We always take the 20 minute drive to the top of the mountain behind my house. The mountain is covered with oaks, aspens and pines. The juxtaposition of the vibrant fall colors of oaks and aspens against the pines is gorgeous.

We normally drive from our home in NE Oklahoma to NW Arkansas and SW Missouri to view the fall colors. This year, though, there has been such a drought the leaves are just brown.

Living a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, it is not so much planning as a quick decision.

No since I live in Boise, Idaho which is known as “the city of trees”, I just have to drive around town to see the fall colors.

We may, but we will just drive to a couple of locations we know of that have a good view. Here in SE Michigan, we are just a few days from the peak of color.

Absolutely not. I am in NH until Dec so there is no need to be a leaf peepers. Born and raised in NH and you have to rake/leaf blow each year you don’t want to see the mess fall brings.

I see the colors every time I look out my windows. A trip into town only makes it better.

Here in southern Utah the fall colours are pretty much over already, I did take a special drive.

We’ve been workkamping in Western NC this year and are located less than a mile from the Blueridge Parkway. We’ve got to drive the Parkway a few times this Fall and the colors have been spectacular.

We didn’t plan it, but our recent return trip from Georgia to Wisconsin was a leaf peeper trip pretty much all the way especially in the higher elevations of the Appalachians. Though past peak here at home the colors are still great as we’ve had a rather wet early fall.

I am in TN and Fall colors are here all around. Every place I drive is gorgeous right now.

We live in Hilly Harrison co Southern Indiana and we can look out our window and see it but always take a drive to the Overlook Restaurant for a beautiful view.

Living in rural Traverse City the colors are all around us and just past
peaking but still worth a drive out to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore park.

The fall agenda is on our bucket list for next year! Visiting all of New England in the fall.

We got lucky this year. Taking a trip for a wedding and anticipate some nice foliage views.

Just have to drive around northwest Ohio and there’s beautiful colors. Take the car, better mileage.
