Autumn is the northeast’s season to really shine. The fall foliage creates brilliant multi-colored nature shows perfect for viewing on foot, on horseback, in a canoe, or even on a driving tour. We put the question out there on Facebook and Twitter: Where’s your favorite place to view vibrant fall foliage? Jim, our Facebook friend, loves the views along Route 17 in New York State. The professionals in-the-know at I Love New York added Letchworth State Park to our list. There are two fall foliage driving tours which VisitPA thinks you should try in the state’s upstate and “wilds” regions. Further north, the Mohawk Trail in western MA was recommended to us by the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism, with specific stops bearing mention: Whitcomb Summit, Mt. Greylock Summit, Millers Falls, Bissell Covered Bridge, and the Bridge of Flowers. The folks at the Trapp Family Lodge are partial to Stowe, VT, no surprise! Each state in the region provides its own update on where the fall foliage is peaking, making it easier to plan a weekend leaf-peeping getaway. The updates are easily accessible via toll-free phone numbers and websites. Your helpful friends at have the done the work for you, compiling this list of state-by-state fall foliage websites.
