15 scenic fall color drives to experience by RV

Trees dressed in full fall colors of red, yellow, and orange.

One of my favorite things to do during fall is see the changing leaves on a color tour. The hues of red, yellow and orange leaves are beautiful, especially on a sunny day. There are a few different ways to do this; by foot, bike, or if you really want to have some fun…by packing into an RV and taking your adventure on the road!

The best time to schedule a trip to see fall foliage depends on where you want to go. According to Travel and Leisure, the colors are in full swing by mid-October in the Midwest and on the East coast. If you want to head to the Rockies or the West coast, plan your visit in early November.

Here are 15 must-see places to drive through this fall:

  1. Mount Mitchell State Park, North Carolina
  2. Michigan's Gold Coast, Traverse City
  3. Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia
  4. Coastal Maine
  5. Olympic Peninsula, Washington
  6. Ozarks, Arkansas
  7. Moosehead Lake Region, Maine
  8. The Green Mountain and Mad River Byways, Vermont
  9. Lake Placid, New York
  10. The Driftless Region, Wisconsin
  11. Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
  12. Cades Cove, The Smoky Mountains, Tennessee
  13. Crested Butte, Colorado
  14. The Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, Taos, New Mexico
