There’s a chill in the air, and you notice a couple leaves changing color here and there. We all love to have a picnic, go on a road trip or take a few snapshots of the gorgeous autumn colors but worry that we might miss the fall foliage peak times. Here are two ways you can make plans to be sure you don’t miss the colored leaves.
Make a Report – or Read a Report – on the Fall Foliage in Your Area on Your Phone
Download the Leaf Peeper App for the iPhone or Android. It’s free.
With Yankee Magazine’s Leaf Peepr app you – and other fall foliage fans – report on the best and brightest colors all over the United States so everyone will know when the leaves colors are at their peak.
Just choose the state and area that you’re reporting on and use the slider to indicate the autumn colors. You can even take a photo of the autumn scene and share it with your comments for everyone else using the Leaf Peepr app.
This is the best way to get the most accurate foliage times and keep your eye on the changing colors for yourself.
Make Plans Using the Fall Foliage Peak Times Map
Whether you’re planning wedding photos or a road trip of covered bridges, here is a map showing the peak season for colored leaves throughout the US so you can book that wonderful Bed & Breakfast in advance.
