When’s the best time for that Fall road trip? October. Mid-October to be more precise, as much as it can be anyway.
SmokeyMountain.com has released its national Fall Foliage Map and leaf forecast for 2019.
Count on mid-October to start seeing fall colors in the Northern Chesapeake Bay, with leaves peaking in later October.
Fall colors start peaking in Virginia’s Southern Bay area late October.
Hopefully, this will help you plan reservations and weekends off.
