With Fall upon us, so is the best part of the year when all the leaves start to turn and the woods turn into a painting. So, why not turn your weekend into a fall foliage trip and explore someplace new? Granted, the real time to go is in a few weeks, but we figured we would share the secrets so you have some time to plan. Below are a few of our favorite roads and destinations to check out this fall!
The first one is a given if you have spent anytime in New England, and that is Vermont! One of my personal favorite areas in the Mad River Valley. With plenty of covered bridges and scenic overlooks of the Mad River, you are sure to get the ultimate fall foliage experience. Another place to see while in Vermont is Burlington. Although it is not exactly the best for Foliage, the downtown area is sure to provide you with a welcoming and fun experience for a day trip. And, if you want, run down to the shore to check out the views of Lake Champlain.
Now, let’s jump over to my favorite state and that is New Hampshire. Starting at the top, stopping in North Conway will provide you with endless views of Mount Washington and the classic New England Mountain ranges. Going a little further south is probably the most well known place to visit. Hopping off in Lincoln, make sure to hit the Kancamagus Highway! You will be met with even more overlooks, and going off the trail will lead you to waterfalls and covered bridges beyond your imagination. If the white mountains are too far and you want to stay closer to the coast, make sure to drive up the American Independence Byway.
If you want to stay in Massachusetts, there are still plenty of places to visit. The one that I always go to is Davis Farmland, with the massive corn maze. This place has it all for a weekend day in fall. From a petting zoo to pumpkin picking, it’s a one stop shop. Moving out to the western part of the state, is the Red Bucket Sugar Shack. The Red Bucket Sugar Shack has an amazing restaurant with fresh maple syrup being made right on the property.
So where is your favorite place to visit during the fall? Make sure to leave a comment below and maybe next year we can share your favorite fall spots! Have fun this fall and as always, if you want to go on a road trip, make sure to stop by any Quirk Service location to make sure you vehicle is in tip top shape!
