Fall Foliage Destinations - Pennsylvania Tops The List


Quick, where’s the chlorophyll’s fading? Uncertain weather has changed the premiere dates of some fall foliage shows, and they may be shorter than usual. Warm temperatures have slowed the autumnal shifts in the Southeast, the Midwest displays are vibrant although the trees of Ohio lag, and the color spectrum in the East Coast has been varied, allowing for multiple opportunities for a seasonal road trip.


According to Yahoo!, the search for “fall leaves” and “fall foliage” has been in high gear in the past month, rising 663% on Yahoo! to make its top 6,000 terms. The quest beats out online look-ups for fall fashion, fall hair styles, and the fall TV schedule. New York City slickers lead searches, and they’re in luck as their state is in full autumnal bloom. On a state level, Ohio has been on the look-out for a change, which still lies at least a couple weeks away.


California may seem an unlikely place to have an autumn craving, but hopeful denizens of Los Angeles and the San Francisco-Bay Area have been scouring online for a peak at what all the excitement’s about. See where the other tree-huggers are this month.
