Autumn in Vermont

Spectacular Colors Await Leaf Peepers

What else can we say? The fall colors here in Vermont are simply unbelievable!

With forests covering three-quarters of our state, and the highest percentage of vibrant maple trees in the country, Vermont can’t help but explode into amazing colors once the leaves start to turn. Whether you are touring the state on our scenic byways, or enjoying a crisp autumn hike outdoors, almost everywhere you look in Vermont during the fall months is alive with bursting reds, oranges and yellows.

Adding to the natural beauty of autumn in Vermont are a variety of festivals, events and activities that help celebrate the season. Harvesting fruits and vegetables, visiting farms, pumpkin patches and corn mazes, and game hunting are among the host of outdoor things to do that make this such a special time of year.

Our elegant inns, hotels and bed and breakfasts are perfect places to stay during a fall visit to Vermont, but plan your fall trip and lodging early, because when the calendar turns to autumn, virtually no place in America is more desirable to visit than Vermont.
