Fall Into the Beautiful Scenery

Here are some favorite fall foliage spots

For Travel Nurses, a special treat for a fall assignment is enjoying the foliage in certain parts of the US. Leaf peeping can be a relaxing and enjoyable past time when you are not caring for others.  As the seasons change the hillsides come alive with majestic beauty. Taking a drive, bike ride, or just a walk is a great way to enjoy the gorgeous colors Mother Nature gifts us each year.  Watch your local weather or check online sources to see when the foliage will peak in your area.

North Conway, New Hampshire

This small town nestled in the White Mountains where restaurants, shopping, and a steam engine train ride await will charm you.

Asheville, North Carolina

This popular mountain destination is speckled is vibrant colors and offers vast colorful views.

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

The Great Smoky Mountains offer an extended viewing period, for almost seven weeks the colors start in the higher elevations and trickle down to the foothills.

Stowe, Vermont

It’s almost impossible to think about fall foliage without picturing New England. Vermont is one of the most scenic fall foliage destinations. Sugar maples, red maples, red oaks, sweet gums, black gums, and sourwoods all produce a red hue. Birches, elms, redbuds, and hickories turn yellow and gold, while sumacs produce a maroon color.

Catskills Region, New York

This is an easy weekend trip out of the city. Take in hiking, kayaking, and other outdoor recreation while admiring the stunning colors that line the mountainsides.

Breckenridge, Colorado

Unleash your sense of adventure with numerous outdoor activities and the breathtaking views of fall as the reds and gold line the mountainside.

Aspen, Colorado

Aspen is named after the aspen tree, whose leaves turn a beautiful and bright golden color. Before this town is blanketed in snow, visitors and residents alike love to take a scenic drive along Castle Creek Road.

Coopers Rock State Forest, West Virginia

The 12,713 acres will not disappoint. Take in the stunning panoramic view of the Cheat River Gorge. The peeing season isn’t long so be sure to check when it’s expected to peak.
