When is peak fall foliage color in October? — 5 Comments

  1. Before I moved to New Hampshire, I used to love to vacation on MDI/Bar Harbor area around the second weekend of October. That way if color was not peak yet or past, there was still pretty things to see and lots to do. Of course, I lucked out most of the time with some great foliage. Wish I could say the same for my visits since living here. But I can’t complain, I can find foliage by taking a drive. And these blogs always help. 🙂

    • Well Michelle, you were doing perfect trip planning procedures. You picked you time period but because fall color is never a guarantee you also picked a location with lots of activities and nearby along the coast you have so much to see and do. I know so many folks focus in on having to find color that they lose sight of what a vacation is all about… Having fun, relaxing and enjoying oneself. How many times do you talk to someone who just came back from a vacation and they say “I need a vacation from my vacation”?
      This to me means they went and treated the vacation like a job or a mission and wrapped so much into it that all the activities wore them out… But that is another article… 🙂

    • And you are right in the heart of it… There are many days when I have to get up at 3AM in order to get on the road and push to get up where the color is early in the season… I’m envious..
