Fall Trip

We are looking to go on a fall trip to PA or New York. We would like to visit quaint towns, festivals, and are interested in nature (lakes, mountains, scenery, maybe wildlife) What would be your suggestions on where to base our stay to experience a nice fall trip.

We are going from October 10-17. Thanks

Where to begin? I was trying to formulate some sort of answer, but there are so many suggestions. This link might give you a start and once you narrow down your search a bit, repost and you might get some more specific help. I've lived here most of my life and I'm still finding new places to explore and experience. Wherever you decide to go, ENJOY!

For a trip from October 10-17, you are more likely to see fall colors at their peak further south in PA. In New York and northern PA, it is likely that fall colors will be past peak, although it is hard to predict that precisely. I would suggest the Laurel Highlands of PA as an excellent place to visit...

Ssh, seeing you're coming from Ohio, I would say you want to try Pennsylvania Wilds. Benezett,PA is the home of the largest wild elk herd east of the Mississippi and the fall leaves will be at peak next week. The new Elk Visitor Center is in a very good area for elk sightings. Near by is Stevenson Dam which is home to many bald eagles and great leaves.

Here is a current leaf watching thread.


please feel free to ask questions. That is why we are here.
