Heading out for a leisurely cruise is a great way to take in Vermont’s breathtaking foliage. Everyone has their own favorite hot spots to drink in the reds, oranges and yellows of fall, but if you’re looking for some new locales or routes, we’ve got you covered.
You can head out on a planned, mapped-out drive down the Mad River Valley or through Lamoille County into the Northeast Kingdom. Or, you can pick from a list of local scenic spots and roads and stop by whichever ones strike your fancy. We’ve even got an etiquette guide for prospective leaf-peepers to keep the peeping courteous and safe.
If you’re feeling really adventurous you can take a different sort of cruise — in a glider that takes you over rather than through the turning leaves of Lamoille County and offers a whole new vista.
And, if you’re wondering when the best time to take any of those trips might be, we’ve covered that too. An outlook of how the experts think the season will go this year, and when peak foliage will be, can be found inside as well.
Once again, it’s that time of year in Vermont, where the scenic byways become choked with all manner of reds, oranges, yellows and browns.
