leaf peeping

The Pacific Northwest might be the country's most underrated region for fall colors.
Autumn is finally here! Arguably our favorite time of the year here at Hipmunk, we're ready for crisp afternoons spent sipping pumpkin spice lattes and walking through falling leaves. And we're not the only ones. Indeed, leaf peeping has become a national pastime as visitors across the country seek out the best towns to see stunning fall foliage.
'Tis the season for driving around and gawking at leaves.
As the leaves begin to change and weekends are no longer reserved for beach trips, it's time to start editing not just your fall wardrobe, but your recreational activities as well.
It's the most colorful time of the year! Here in the northeast, we're surrounded by beautiful shades of orange, red, and yellow as leaf-peeping season kicks into full swing -- but you don't have to be in just one region to appreciate all the fall foliage.
Pronounced "Kank-ah-MAW-gus," this stretch of N.H. Route 112 is dotted with some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Northeast, including towering mountains, cascading waterfalls and wooded hikes.
