Fall Travel Tips


September 17, 2018

With summer on its way out, it’s time to think about autumn adventures.
Follow our guide to learn how to find the best of fall.

 

Timing is key
Unfortunately, colorful leaves don’t stay for the entirety of the season. Often lasting just a couple weeks, they disappear as quickly and quietly as they come.

Fear not–the search for vibrant colors is not as difficult, thanks to tools like the Fall Foliage Prediction Map.

An interactive map forecast shows predictions for changing leaves throughout the country. Check when they might be at full bloom in your destination of choice, and plan your trip accordingly.

 

Make adjustments as you go
With a general idea of when leaves might be beginning to turn in your area, head to your destination of choice. If the colors didn’t change as expected, don’t be afraid to tweak your plan and try again. Oftentimes, different areas in the same region will have varying rates of leaves changing and falling. You won’t know which grove is at peak until you go and see for yourself. Always remember, the journey to get to the destination is a reward in itself.

 

It doesn't have to be a grand scheme

Vibrant hues in New England are a no-brainer. For those of us who don't have "real autumn" in our backyards, colors can be closer than we think. Instead of planning a long trek out east, search for alternatives nearby. Did you know you can still experience autumn in all of its glory on the West Coast too?

One of California’s best-kept secrets is hidden in the Eastern Sierra. Head over to Mammoth Lakes to see the display of autumn on cottonwood, aspen, willow, and more.

Check out the different activities you can take part in on the Visit Mammoth page.
