Best Places to See Fall Colors in the Eastern U.S.

 

The United States as a whole has a great variety of fall colors. Some seasons overlap, some start later than others. It is important to know the peak season for fall colors in whichever region you are visiting. You don’t want to show up too early and have everything still be green, and you don’t want to show up too late and have all the leaves be on the ground. Here are just a few of the best places to see the changing of the colors in the eastern U.S.

The longest season: New Hampshire. It is best to view the colors from the middle of a lake, any lake. Just kayak out to the middle and take in all the colors around you. You will want to go anytime from late September through late October.

The latest season to start: New Jersey. Specifically in the southeast region of Jersey. You will want to go from late October through early November.

The most variety: New York’s Adirondack Mountains. The region has great geographic diversity which allows for a wide variety of trees and colors during the fall season. You will want to visit from late September through late October.

The least crowded: Western Maine. The weather can be testy as with all of the states in the New England region, but it is well worth it. You will want to visit from late September to late October.

Best fall foliage tours: Massachusetts. Unfortunately, that means it is very busy during this time of the year, but it is well worth being able to drive through all the beautiful fall colors. You will want to visit from late September to early October.

Most intense Color: Vermont’s Green Mountains. Here the colors are just deeper, brighter and pop more. You will want to visit from late September to early October.

Fall in the eastern United States is beautiful. It is especially beautiful in the New England region where there are pines, allowing you to see the contrast of the green with the reds, oranges, and yellows.
