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.
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.
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.
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.
