  2. Someone once said that after a harsh summer the leaves will be more dramatic, if that is the case LOOK OUT! It has been hot, very hot, here in the SE so we shall expect to see leaves change color like never before!

    Beginning end Sept to early October should be the best time to start scouting for color here in SW Virginia. The Claiborne House B&B sits at 1200 feet here in the foothills of these Blue Ridge Mountains. Being foothills gives you a broader view of the country side once the leaves start changing and dropping.

    From our porch you can view them, once our magnificent sugar maple kicks into its annual fluorescent orange!

    Mid to end October is when they are truly spectacular and suck the breath right out of you! A camera cannot relay the brilliant colors you will see here in the Fall, that is why we say “you can view Africa in a book or you can go there yourself for all the sites and sounds.” Go to Africa – go see the colors yourself – be an official leaf peeper and you will know why folks come back year after year.

    The Blue Ridge Parkway has more variety of leafy trees than most anywhere for Fall Leaf Peeping. It is America’s favorite drive…no stopping (I have a blog article about this beautiful scenic road:

    My all time favorite Fall tradition is to drive down a winding country road and to have the leaves crunching under the tires and fly up behind the vehicle in my wake! I never experienced this on the west coast, this is truly HALLMARK!


  3. There is a small city situated in the very center of the Shenandoah Valley, one of the most stunningly-beautiful spots in the United States! In this small city, once you venture off the Interstate (I-81), you will find the kind of place you wish existed everywhere.

    For instance, the downtown buildings still exist and today are filled with a variety of interesting shops, eight art galleries, several coffee shops, one tea house, numerous restaurants and the world’s only historically-correct re-creation of Shakespeare’s theater where his plays were performed indoors, The Blackfriars.

    Any season of the year is very special in Staunton, VA. There is even a free trolley which circles around downtown and over to the park.

    Live entertainment from around the world also appears in Staunton, thanks to CenterStage! The ticket price for the entire season is only $50.00!!

    Visit Staunton for culture, for fine dining, for the beauty of the Valley, or just because there is a beautiful little town where you want to walk around and enjoy special shops, find antiques, or just meet the shopkeepers and other friendly people as you wander Staunton’s small downtown area.

    The free summer concerts in the park are ending soon for this year but the Farmers’ Market is open until after Thanksgiving on Saturday mornings. The theater is open year round.

    Plan to stay for quite a few days if you want to explore our one-of-a-kind little city.

  4. Awakening before dawn, getting downstairs,for the traditional cereal and cup of coffee, the whistle out the door to rouse the dogs, and the looking at the star filled night sky, soon to become morning, it’s Fall. Iv’e waited all year for the opening of hunting season, and today it starts. A tradition handed down for generations from father to son, from friends and relatives is still coarsing in my blood.
    The initial steps into the woods and fields still covered with frost as the lightening sky turns to sun, with the musty smell of new fallen leaves is intoxicating. The leaves still partially damp from the night sky turn crunchy as the morning breaks, and the dogs once happy to run turn toward me with a decided tiredness as the day comes upon us. It’ time to head home to continue on the to do list, but we have fulfilled our commitment to history, to the land, and to our hearts because it’s Fall.

  5. Aspens quaking — yellow shimmers of light dancing in the breeze. Brilliant orange catching the last rays of sun. Bright red gently cascading to the ground.

    Mid September to early October the aspens turn from a light green to red, orange, and yellow. Red Feather Ranch B&B sits on a mountain in the Colorado Rockies at 8300 ft. The ridge allows leaf viewers a 100 mile vista view of the pine forest where groves of aspens hide until Fall.

    Feel the clear mountain air on your face as you gaze out across the mountain range and see incredible spots of yellow, orange and red foliage appear against the dark green pines.

    There are several aspen groves near the lodge where you can sit for hours watching the leaves quake.

  6. Vermont is the THE place to see fall foliage…..and Woodstock is the THE village to see the best of what Vermont has to offer! It has restaurants, historic buildings, a National Park you can walk to and best of all….1000’s of trees. It is a great place to base yourself and tour the whole State and even central New Hampshire. This year the colour should be magnificent as we’ve had a moist summer.

    Do pay the village web site (www.woodstockvt.com) a visit and if you want to stay in a European style boutique inn, that is the antidote to “Ye Olde New England” check http://www.woodstockervt.com. We’re rated number 1 B & B in Woodstock at Trip Advisor and number 2 in the entire State, but make up your own mind and pay us and the village a visit.

  7. October is always the busiest month of the year for all Bed and Breakfasts in the Asheville area and for good reason. When you add color to our fantastic views you get an awesome combination. Chateau on the Mountain is proud to say that the exterior of our 10 acre property is as magnificent as the 11,000 square foot interior. Fall is for romance with hikes in the woods crunching leaves cuddling in front of your own fireplace and luxuriating in our spa tubs or hot tub.

  8. Fall here in Western North Carolina is awsome with so many different trees turning . This one place called Max Patch bald 4,850 ft. offers 360 views of the Smoky Mountains and the Tenn.
    valley . and beyond. my favorite drive from Hot Springs North Carolina in the fall.

  9. Fall foliage in Tennessee, especially in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, is a spiraling event depending on the elevation. September is a month when all the yellows and golds embrace the setting sun, leaves start to fall and crunchy golden paths invite you along 900 miles of hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I have hiked from Cades Cove to Cosby (where my inn is located) on little trails, day hikes usually fit into a busy schedule, not the through Appalachian Trail hike many take between our two areas of the national park. This fall our rain forest has been dry, but right now it is raining a beautiful hard rain right outside my window. I am hoping for the reds and oranges of fall to come early October. We can move through fall by climbing a mountain here, from 1500 feet at the base to 6700 feet at the top, with the range of temperature varying about 20 degrees from top to bottom. This allows for a variety of seasons on the same day, and an adventure into the elevations gives the fall foliage traveler a chance to experience at least a 3 week change all on the same day. You may go over the mountains from Gatlinburg to Cherokee and stop at the top, Clingman’s Dome, to see the colors of the trees mingling with a sunrise or sunset. Our bed and breakfast, http://www.creekwalkinn.com, looks out over Mt. Kammerer, and the climb to Mt. Kammerer and the firetower at the top is strenuous and takes you almost 4000 feet in elevation.
    On of my favorite jaunts from the inn is the Hen Wallow Falls Trail, just 2.2 miles in. It is a lovely, lacy and mossy waterfall surrounded by forest. The water will reflect all the colors and it is a beautiful place to take a picnic lunch and just enjoy the sound of water.
    We have free maps for all our guests. If you just want help planning the perfect hike into the national park, give ma a call at 1-800-962-2246. I am passionate about hiking and have named all the rooms at Creekwalk Inn after hiking trails in the part, such as Ramsey Cascade…It is a 4 mile hike, very strenuous, and will take you through a progression of early to late fall depending on the time of October you select to hike. You’ll enjoy the cozy atmosphere of your room upon your return, the wood smoke from the chimney in the living room, and the jacuzzi tub in your room.
    I do believe foliage is hard to really appreciate from a car. Try walking. Whether you need a flat trail such as “Porter Flats” in Greenbrier or a strenuous climb, you will see the leaves fall and swirl in a mountain stream, tumble over waterfalls, get trapped in eddies…bring your camera, for these colorful shots will fade from your memory if you don’t capture them, maybe make a calendar for Christmas gifts to your family and friends…
    Yes, foliage in the Smokies is a crunchy, colorful, magical time, ranging from late September to early November. Come enjoy!

  10. October is the prime time for fall foilage here in mountain Maryland. Many local festivals celebrate the leaf-turning – the Springs Folk Festival (1st weekend) and the garret County Autumn Glory festival (second weekend) being the main events. But the best time to visit is mid-week through the month (the leaves are just as spectatuclar, the traffic is much lighter and the rates are cheaper. The Stonebow Inn faces a ridge of beautiful sugar maples so you don’t even have to drive to enjoy the fall foliage here in mountain Maryland. Visit our web site to see pictures and how to contact us. http://www.stonebowinn.com

  11. Vermont is synonymous with Fall Foliage! In Warren, around West Hill House, the gorgeous tapestry of colors last for several weeks from late September to mid October, but individual trees are magnificent both earlier and later than this. While Foliage is peak season and special rates apply, we are offering group discounts both before and after the main season. Check our website for details.

  12. There are a few tranquil weeks now between Labor Day and October when the leaves begin to turn a spectacular array of sunset colors. Following the winding road around Rogers Lake in Niantic, CT there are a few rogue Maple trees that I await to turn a brilliant orange or fiery red well before October. Surely we have the promise of a beautiful Indian summer for the month of September & October-crystal blue skies, apple picking in Scott’s Orchard, a sweater for the soon to be brisk evenings and the smell of a wood burning fire as the sun sets over the painted hills of the Mystic country coastline.

  13. Located just 2 miles from the Appalachian Trail and a high point of Angel’s Rest, our 180 panoramic view offers spectacular leaf watching from our deck. Watching the layers of colors progress is amazing as the yellows, oranges and bright reds appear.
    From the Appalachian Trail to the Blue Ridge Parkway, enjoy the outdoors with hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, wine tasting and the many fall festivals. Follow our driving tours to historic locations within Giles County.
    Get ready…it’s just around the corner!

  14. The Shawnee National Forest offers spectacular fall colors, giant rock formations, and peaceful hiking trails. Little country back roads criss-cross the region. Mid October is usually the peak and there are numerous wine festivals to add to the fall experience in Southern Illinois.

  16. Late September through October is when you want to be in KY to see the beautiful fall leaves. Whether you drive beneath a canopy of trees over the road or have a panoramic view from a ridge, you will be refreshed and delighted by the variety of color. The sight of hay bales and pumpkins in the field, the cool, crisp air against your face, and the sound of the fallen leaves crunching under your feet add to the pleasure of your senses as you hike or stroll thru the countryside.

Make plans right away to celebrate fall with us at Rehoboth Inn in Central KY.

  17. Nothing beats the brilliant blue skies and deep blue ocean as a backdrop to the fall foliage colors! Combine those colors with the red of a lobster and you’ve got Fall in Maine!

    From the ocean to the mountains, Maine has it all in the Fall. From sunny, warm days on the coast to the thrill of the first snowfall in the upper elevations, there are abundant scenic drives to take you through small, delightful New England towns.

    Stop by a local antique shop, sample fresh cider donuts and crisp apple cider, checkout the winning zucchini at a county fair…it’s all here in Maine.

    Not sure when to visit? Check the state’s foliage website for more information on peak foliage and events…http://www.maine.gov/doc/foliage/index.shtml

  18. The weather in south central Pennsylvania couldn’t be more perfect! We fit the definition of Indian Summer…warm days and cool nights. The trees are just beginning to show signs of turning. Can’t tell yet if we’re in for beautiful or simply stunning.

    Meandering the back roads of Pennsylvania is such fun. We’re the fifth largest producer of apples in the country so be sure to stop and pick up a bushel, or maybe some of the pears and peaches that are still available at the farmers markets. Pennsylvania is becoming better known for its wines, and the grape harvest should be ready soon. There are numerous stops along the ways for antiques, and being Pennsylvania, lots of history in Gettysburg and neighboring towns.

    And if you’re a real foodie, come for the dining, too. We have some talented chefs in the area that are committed to the farm to table philosophy, ensuring that everything served is inventive and distinctive.

    The best color for the immediate area is generally late October. I’ll keep you posted… Until then, happy travels. And if you’re coming our way, please consider The Beechmont Inn B&B.

  19. Fall Colors in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan rival anything in New England. Our color is in full swing with may vistas to enjoy including the back yard and deck of the Regal Country Inn.
    See why we were mentioned on the TOday show as one of the best.
    Check out the pictures on our web site.
    Came and relax and enjoy a pile of wonderful color.

  20. They are slowly starting to change here in SW Virginia. From our 130 foot porch you can view the tops with subtle changes of orange, red and yellow. Give it a couple weeks and it will be brilliant!

    Best room with a view – The Blue Ridge Room.

    We Welcome you to The Claiborne House B&B in Blue Ridge country Virginia!

  21. A recommendation regarding Fall foliage travel – book well in advance for ample room selections. Most often Vermont foliage is quite predictable… anytime from the last weekend in September through third week in October one can usually experience various levels of peak color. But always plan ahead… There are also many tour offerings including; scenic rail tours, hiking, kayak, golf, rock climbing and more… Enjoy!
