Leaf Peeping & Other Fall RoadTrip Activities
Fall leaf peeping season in North America runs from early September to late December, although most areas are finished by Thanksgiving or the first heavy snow fall, whichever comes first. Leaf colors vary based on species and location -- latitude being the #1 most common variable -- as well as the amount of sunshine the areas receive on an annual basis. On this page, you'll find articles about great autumnal roadtrip routes and two lists of web resources. The first provides general information about leaf peeping areas, and the second provides up-to-the-minute field reports about current conditions you can use to find the best places for viewing autumn leaf displays.
