Fall Leaves

I need some help.....

I live in South Florida and well we really don't have seasons.

So tell me are the leaves in your area starting to change?

Let me know where you are please, I really need a quick weekend trip to take in this beautiful sight.

My son works for an airline so I have flying privileges.
Of course it's stand by, but I will hope for the best.

Thank you.

We live in Northwest Indiana and the leaves have changed drastically this past week. Maybe a trip to Chicago & renting a car would allow you to see natures beauty in the suburbs 😊

There's an app for that!

Well, there's at least a website for that, heh.

The Weather Channel has a quite detailed Fall Foliage map.

I read your post and thought, 'why doesn't she just check the foliage map when the news shows it...' and then realized that in Florida they probably don't show it on the news or discuss it.

Here, however, it's a staple of the season.

You click on a region, then get more specific and it'll tell you where the leaves are before, at, past peak, what percent of them have changed, etc.

It looks like each specific is only tiny but they actually cover a decent area. Check the Northeast - Vermont, NH, Mass., Upstate NY, etc. You've still got a bunch of options and some time.

St. Louis Mo here and leaves are beginning to change.

Virginia Creeper Vines, Sumac Trees, Dogwoods, Horse Chesnuts, Ash, and some Maple & Oaks are starting to change.

We are getting some VERY low temps starting tomorrow so I would expect that we will have more leaves begin to change. Everything is running about 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

Good question! I wonder how the northeast is doing? I would love to go to there and see that change!

Finger Lakes, NY, actually a lot of area's in NY have the leaves change. Others PA, VT, MA, RI.

Each state changes at different times so I would try the NYS website for here. It will tell you the part of the state with the best foilage.

HAHA! No there is no mention of fall leaves however, we do get daily "tropics updates" here it follows every storm in the atlantic ocean.

I live in Saratoga Springs, NY.

It's not at peak yet, but VERY close! They are gorgeous right now. Most places you look, you can see the mountains in the distance- painted with orange, red, yellow, brown, green and all different shades of those colors.

We have property north of Harrison, Michigan and the colors up that way are gorgeous right now. Lots of brilliant reds, oranges and yellows, so beautiful! Even the median in the highway (127) is beautiful with goldenrod and some kind of bright purple flower (weed), and reds, etc. I would imagine it's beautiful all the way up to Mackinaw. And I know there is a road over by Petosky that is a "tunnel of trees" and I bet that would be gorgeous now too.

I second the Finger Lakes in NY. (Fly into Syracuse or Rochester.)

http://www.fingerlakes.com/

Maybe stay here - http://www.skaneateles.com/

Or, most anywhere in New York State.

NYS Fall Foliage chart -
http://www.iloveny.com/What-To-Do/Re...ge-Report.aspx

ESPECIALLY the Adirondacks... my all time favorite place to be. - (Fly into Albany.)

Visit Lake George -

or

Old Forge -

If you choose NY, let me know if I can recommend accommodations.

Just wanted to add -

I read your post to my DH, (because I'm jealous and was hoping he'd say, we can go, too ) and he said tell her DEFINITELY somewhere in upstate NY, tell her the Adirondacks.

Then when I read a previous poster suggested Saratoga Springs, that would be perfect, too! It's the inspiration for the Disney resort and a quick drive to the Lake George area!

OH MY come to VERMONT!!! It is breathtaking here. Afterall, we are known for our foliage. The Stowe area is amazing.

I love driving into work just taking in the beautiful scenery.

You NEED to come here!
