Where do you find the best fall color in the USA? It depends on whether you prefer a golden hickory, scarlet maple or deep burgundy dogwood but there are drives from now until end November for all palettes.
Smithsonian.com has put together a list of its Top 8 Fall Color Drives, including Vermont, Maine, Michegan, Virginia and North Carolina, Washington, Arkansas and New York.
Combinations of mild days and cold but not freezing overnight temperatures bring out the best colors. Yellows are usually first, with the anthocyanin-produced deep reds and burgundy coming later in the season.
