Fall Foliage

We don’t have a favorite season, but if we did, it might be fall. What’s not to love? 

The changing leaves turn a world of green into a kaleidoscope of blazing colors, and the fresh apples practically jump off the trees. The air may be chill, but there’s a tangible warmth everywhere you look. 

And as for fall activities? They don’t get any better than this! Leaf peeping can keep you busy for days, exploring the trails and the never-ending brilliance of nature. We invite you to openly gawk at the colors, indulge in photos in the apple orchard and pumpkin patch, and try all the seasonal beers. Get your face painted at a fall festival, enjoy the rich harvest of autumnal dishes, and watch the changing seasons reflected in the stars. 

Peak fall colors depend on location, altitude, and weather, but typically the best time for leaf peeping is between early to mid-October. The best way to enjoy the fall colors is up to you, whether it’s from a car, at the peak of a hike, or around a fire with a drink in hand. One thing is for certain – these colors will take your breath away.
