Fall Foliage Road Trips

by Rachel Baker on October 14, 2013

Executive Travel Magazine has a great article for road tripping through the Fall Foliage in the country.

According to the experts, the 2013 season is going to be another showstopper. Jen Butson of Vermont Tourism, for example, notes that she expects a robust fall foliage season. “It begins just after Labor Day in northern high elevations and low-lying marshlands, and chases the spine of the Green Mountains southward into mid to late October,” says Butson. New this year, Vermont Tourism is producing “Seeing Is BeLeafing” video foliage reports, along with weekly driving recommendations, lodging deals and apple-picking info.

While New England has some quintessential leaf-peeping routes, don’t limit your thinking to the East Coast. Colorado and the higher tiers of Arizona radiate with golden aspens come late September. At Shenandoah National Park, orange beech trees and scarlet dogwoods provide majestic color. Add California’s vineyard harvests and the annual fall roundup of bison at Custer State Park in South Dakota, and you have more than enough reasons to hit the road.
