As the weather begins to cool and the sun sets a little bit earlier in the afternoon, it means our favorite season has arrived, Fall! With autumn comes the yearly leaves changing color to a spectacular red, orange, and yellows.

Leaves change colors in different regions depending on current weather, impacted by rainfall and temperature throughout the spring and summer. Normally each region has about two weeks of peak fall foliage in October, but can also be enjoyed on the edges of this timeframe.

For most people this is the perfect season to hop in the car and enjoy a road trip to the breathtaking views of fall foliage. In the United States the best places to enjoy the colorful fall foliage is in New England, the Pacific North West and down along the Appalachian Mountains, including Smokey Mountains Nation Park. You can also enjoy the leaves changing colors across the US, especially in the Rocky Mountains and any forested region.

For us, we could not wait to witness the foliage in Smokey Mountain National Park, just a few hours drive from our home in Raleigh, the perfect weekend getaway.
