Whether you live on the East Coast, West Coast, or somewhere in between, you shouldn’t have to travel far for fall foliage — just drive north until the leaves start to change color.
Of course, a true leaf-peeping trip should involve a little more planning. This is especially true if you decide to pass on New England or the Pacific Northwest in favor of an international trip. After all, America isn’t the only place to witness this exciting annual event. (Although, when you think about it, we’re really just celebrating the slow, degenerative death of trillions of innocent leaves — making the whole thing a bit sadistic, no? But I digress.)
Whether you choose to remain stateside or opt for a jaunt abroad, here are seven fall foliage tours that are sure to put you in the mood for the season. Grab your boots, jackets, and cameras (pumpkin spice lattes optional) because fall will soon be upon us.
