We recently made a quick getaway to Vermont to check out that state’s classic fall foliage season. Finding time in between work, school and sports can be challenging in the fall but we are glad we took the family time to enjoy this special season that only comes once a year!
As usual, Vermont did not disappoint with the tree showing all manner of colors. We particularly enjoyed the views along the back roads.
Despite somewhat overcast conditions, the colors around lakes and rivers stood out.
Our quick trip inspired us to reach out to some of our favorite family travel bloggers to see what they have been doing during foliage season. As usual they have great ideas for foliage destinations and tips for getting the most fun out of your family time together.
Adrienne Veglia Mazeau of Wandering Working Mom just got back from a great time riding the Catskill Mountain Railroad. Look for great color in the photos in her post Fall Foliage Ride in the Catskills
Jessica Bowers at Suitcases and Sippy Cups shared her favorite tips on Favorite Ways to Photograph Fall Leaves. She has some great ideas for keeping those fall shots interesting.
To keep the little ones motivated, Amie O’Shaughnessy of Ciao Bambino pointed us to her post 10 Ways To Make Leaf-Peeping Fun For Kids This Fall
Looking back on last season for inspiration about where to go this year, Patricia King of Savvy Traveling shared Chasing fall colors in New England from 2012.
Keryn Means from Walking On Travels noted that Washington may be the evergreen state but they sure know how to show off their colors in her 2012 article Seattle Garden Experience: Five Favorites Show off Their Autumn Wardrobe.
Allison Laypath of Tips for Family Trips also looked back to 2012 post about when to see the best fall foliage in Utah’s mountains. It specifically mentions late September, but she reminds us the mountain colors are still gorgeous right now in 2013.
There is still time to catch these special seasonal views. Get your family out for a day amid the leaves before its too late!
