Whether you are visiting or live in the East Coast year round, fall is by far the most picturesque season in the area. The fall colors in the mountains along the East Coast are unbelievable, and if you’re planning a trip to see them, you’ll want to find the right locations. Here are some of the best places along the East Coast to take in the sights of this colorful season.

Route 17 in Maine

If your travels are taking you to Maine, jump on Route 17. This roadway stretches from Rockland on the coast all the way to Augusta, the state’s capital, and will take you past some of the state’s most beautiful scenery along the way. During your drive you will travel past Baxter State Park and drive around Sebago Lake, so keep your camera handy.

Route 44 in Connecticut

Connecticut is another state full of great vistas in the fall, and Route 44 is one spot you can see quite a few of them. This drive will take you through Natchaug State Forest. This natural area sits at the juncture of the Still and Bigelow rivers, providing beautiful views. It also passes through Mashamoquet Brook State Park, another great spot for seeing fall foliage. Route 44 spans the entire length of the state, so plan your visit carefully so you can see these parks along the way.

Hudson River Valley in New York

The Hudson River Valley in New York is one of the most popular places to go to see fall foliage. Consider a visit to the Point Lookout Inn, which is on the Palisades Interstate Parkway, to see a panoramic view of the fall colors. If you visit on a clear day, you can see five states from this spot.

Virginia’s Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Mountains are another famous spot for leaf peeping, and the Blue Ridge Parkway provides some of the best views of them. Peak season here is late October into early November, and you will enjoy seeing the changes of plant species as you go up in elevation along the parkway. Be certain to plan stops at Milepost 139, the Cahas Knob Overlook, and Milepost 176.1, Mabry Hill, which are two of the most picturesque spots along the way.

Fall foliage in the East Coast is something you have to see for yourself to truly appreciate. If you’re making a trip in the fall, make sure you plan a day to take one of these drives. The breathtaking views that await are well worth the time.

I met Bosco 6 months after loosing my husband of 11 years. I have two daughter’s Jennifer and Kylie. I didn’t need this big house in Eastchester. The upkeep was just too much for me. Bosco helped me sell my home and I purchased a townhouse. It was important for me to keep my girls in the Eastchester school district. I will be forever grateful to my new friend. He still calls from time to time to check in on us. Thanks Bosco. Karen Schwartz You will not be disappointed with all the work that Ken aka Bosco does for his clients. I was able to sell my house very quickly with his knowledge of what sells a house. From the front door throughout the house he noted what had to be removed and changed. He understands what people want to see in purchasing a house. With his help I was able to sell my house for $15,000 over the asking price. You won't go wrong with Bosco looking out for you. I can't thank him enough. I learned a lot from him, he knows the business. I will be forever grateful. Helen Izzo My girlfriend and I were looking to relocate to Westchester. We were first-time homebuyers and Bosco helped us with every step of the process and helped us find our dream home. He made sure to understand what we wanted. He made himself available when we had questions. He is reliable, very knowledgeable, and a true professional. Debora Flores I had the great pleasure of working with Bosco this past winter-spring on my first home purchase. Prior to Bosco I had a bad experience with another realtor who was unfortunately very unresponsive, lacked effort and ultimately not helpful. Thankfully my wishes were answered when I met Bosco because he was the complete opposite. Bosco doesn't waste time, he's extremely on top of everything. When I expressed interest in a listing, he'd book a visit within 1-2 days of me highlighting my home. He understands how aggressive the Westchester market is; good homes were snatched quickly. Moreover, I work in Manhattan, so I could only see places late at night, 7:30pm onward. He didn't mind visiting listing with me late a night. He worked around my schedule, not his. Being a first-time buyer, I had no experience with all the complexities of co-ops. It was great working with Bosco because he knows so much. He sits on a co-op board himself, so he has first-hand knowledge of what co-op communities are looking for. He successfully guided me on all the paperwork I need to paint myself in the best light to have my offer accepted and achieve board approval. Bosco's super passionate about home buying and I think that's the type of realtor you need to successfully land a great home. His combined passion and experience makes him a great realtor in my opinion. He's my realtor for life now, because I know he'll provide the best service. Ben DiChiara Bosco is everything you would ever want in a real estate agent. Smart, personable, energetic, friendly, tireless in his pursuit, of your goal. He is dependable, reliable, and at your beck and call. What more could you want. I would use him again anytime and refer him to anyone. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.
