    My wife and I always set aside one Saturday every October to see National Parks or destinations that are great for Fall Foliage.
    www.visitbushkillfalls.com (Bushkill Falls in PA is just one example)
    *
    Since we live in NJ we see destinations here in our own state, and in PA, and in NY
    *
    What are the good spots for Fall Foliage in Canada? How about in America's West Coast? Hey, why am I limiting it? Tell us about anywhere you want to!
    So many of you post images on your favorite threads all the time.
    I (and I'm sure others as well) would enjoy seeing photos from anyone if this upcoming season you capture some natural beauty with your cameras or phones....share it here on this thread ;)

    2 summers ago we visited Ottawa / Ontario
    After a brief effort to find out when colors are at their best in Ottawa, the answer seems to be approx. the 1st week of October.
    That's not so far way.:eek:

    We live in New England and usually try to do a trip through Western Massachusetts or Vermont every fall. I'm just not ready for it yet this year.

    Thanks for posting Nemo14
    I admit it.....I should have waited on this thread. I wrongly guessed that Canada might start their fall foliage season by 9/23 or so.
    As I stated before, Ottawa is more like Oct. 1 - 10th.
    Oh well, when the time is right, this thread can come to life! :D

    I'm not a fan of cooling weather but the route 81 drive from W Va. into SC is beautiful if you can time it just right. My 2nd choice would be up by Lake Erie, I went to a wedding up there way back when, when the leaves were at their height of color and it was spectacular.

    Heading to the western part of Massachusetts to visit my friend (and yes converted her to Disney lol) really looking forward to seeing the beginning of the foliage.

    We'll be back in VA next weekend - hope to find some time to go up to Shenandoah National Park while we're down there.

    @Courtney6682 that's the spirit! :) When I started this thread I hoped posters would do exactly what you did....so thanks! On Saturday my family will pass through the Poconos a bit and then continue into NY State.
