Autumn in New York: Where To See The Fall Foliage

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Whether you’re vacationing in New York City or just live here, I think Fall Foliage is one thing you must experience. It’s the No. 1 reason why I love fall so much. Why it’s my favorite season by far.

Central Park

If you don’t want to go too far simply wait till around the end of October and go for a walk in Central Park. The park is so beautiful, when the leaves start to change and the air gets crisp. My favorite areas for a walk are Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, around Sheep’s Meadow and down the cinematic path by the Bethesda Fountain. You can also check out Central Park’s Fall Foliage Map here. I promise you, it’ll be a sight to see.

Hudson Valley

Take a scenic drive up Hudson Valley this weekend to Belleayre Mountain, Catskill, and Kingston. Fall foliage is supposed to have its peak this coming weekend in those areas. I suggest choosing a high point to get the gorgeous view over the valley.

Mohawk Mountains

If you take a drive into Connecticut to Mohawk Mountains I assure you, you’ll experience nature you will never forget. My suggestion is that you spend a little extra and stay at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, which is a beautiful Victorian Castle with an award winning spa. From here you can go for walks in the near-peak epic scenery or take a drive around to experience it.
