Today is Labor Day and its time to plan this falls activities. Fall Foliage Trips are perfect for this year’s economy. For most of us, there are great Fall Foliage destinations within a tank of gas. Here are some favorites:
New England Fall Foliage
- Cruise up the Kennebec River or take the local ferries for Maine Coast Fall Foliage.
- Almost any road and any town will reward you with views of the world-class Vermont Fall Foliage.
- Massachusetts Fall Foliage with some history, in Concord, MA or at the seashore in Halibut Point.
- Hudson Valley and Catskills Fall Foliage -Drive to Woodstock, pick up antiques and stop for the views at the Ashokan Reservoir. Visit the mansions overlooking the Hudson.
- Further north, opening up the season is Adirondack Fall Foliage, definitely a place to get away from the crowds.
- Combine the harvest festivals with Pennsylvania Fall Foliage near Lancaster in Amish country.
- Bike along the Potomac for DC and Maryland Fall Foliage.
- Central Park is pretty obvious for New York City Fall Foliage , but each borough has its own show. Combine with a medieval castle at the Cloisters.
- Tour of some of the historic Gold Coast gardens and mansions for Long Island Fall Foliage
- Cruises out of Pittsburgh for Southwest Pennsylvania Fall Foliage.
- Colorado Fall Foliage is about adding 14,000 ft snow covered peaks to your orange, purple, red, green and brown pictures.
- Closer to Denver, enjoy Colorado Rockies Fall colors in the mining town atmosphere of Georgetown.
- Canoe trips on the Rio Chama in New Mexico.
And last but not least, for our fans in the South – Virginia Fall Foliage is at its best in the Western part of the state, in the Shenandoah, Blue Ridge and (further south) Smoky Mountains.
