5 Fall Foliage Destinations

The fall foliage at these famed scenic spots stretches late into the autumn season, so there's plenty of time to catch the beautiful, natural colors at their peak! Take a hike or a drive and enjoy these five destinations from coast to coast.

5. LANCASTER COUNTY, Southeastern Pennsylvania

Lancaster County

The pastoral farmland that usually draws visitors to Amish country -- and takes them back a couple hundred years -- is temporarily upstaged by awesomely autumnal maple, oak and black gum leaves.

Take a hike!
At the 198-acre Trout Run Nature Preserve, you can hike several miles of heavily wooded trails. A local favorite is the trail marked by blue blazes (patches of color hand-painted on trees and rocks) that meander through a bird-filled bog to an old railroad tunnel.


Drive by!
The Southern Amish Countryside Covered Bridge Tour winds down foliage-flanked country roads, where you'll see farms, one-room schoolhouses and the tour's namesake: a series of old covered bridges.

Chow time!
A stop at Immergut Hand-Rolled Soft Pretzels (3537 Old Philadelphia Pike, 717-768-0657) is a must. Buttery and perfectly chewy, the pretzels are all made to order.

Bunk here!
Kids will be psyched to stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn (rooms from $80), a hotel designed to look like an old ship. After dinner, gather around the fire pit overlooking the duck- and koi-feeding pond.
