good place for fall foliage?

Is Williamsburg especially lovely in the fall-- or not so much? (Is it prettier in spring?)

Are there places in that area of I-95 that might have better fall foliage? E.g. how would the Charlottesville area compare?

Thank you.

Williamsburg is enjoyable spring or fall, especially the garden.

Fall colors should peak a little later in Williamsburg over Charlottesville. Either place should be nice in the fall.

Most often the leaf color in this part of the state does not occur until November. The western areas of Virginia, especially in the mountains west of Charlottesville, have more fall colors in October. Spring gardens are lovely here starting in April.

Since I have the option, I visit the flatlanders in spring and stay here out west in fall.

The spring flowers in the east are stunning and folks there seem to landscape accordingly. Not to say their fall colors aren't beautiful, they just don't have the tree density and vistas available to you just west of Charlottesville.
