Fall Foliage Map“September’s bluebird days rolled into Vermont as idyllically as anyone could wish for. These days, glimmers of red adorn the mountainsides and apple pie is on the menu.” “But we’re not much for bragging, so we appreciate that folks like the New York Times and Huffington Post have described Vermont as ‘Seasonal Perfection,’ touting our fall foliage and way of life, for us.”

“It’s a stunning time of year – we welcome you to enjoy it, by exploring Vermont.”

We are about to become surrounded by a spectacular show of colors. If you can’t make it to Vermont, you can find some gorgeous Fall scenery in Vermont.com’s Autumn Photo Gallery, thanks to local photographers and visitors to Vermont… But truly, you’ve got to be here to fully enjoy the leaves.

The map is an approximation of the foliage color progression throughout the season. The changes generally spread from the higher, cooler areas of the Green Mountains down into the Champlain and Connecticut River Valleys (moving from north to south across Vermont).

Checkout the Vermont.com Calendar of Events to find great foliage events of all types & sizes throughout the state. Don’t see the event you’re looking for? Feel free to suggest an event so we can add it to our Calendar. We hope you come see the beautiful fall colors of Vermont!
