Ready for some leaf peeping? Head no farther than Connecticut, where you'll find New England’s longest fall foliage season. Running from north to south steadily over about 6 weeks, the foliage coverage varies, but there’s always somewhere to see the colors change.
Thanks to our friends at the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, here are a few suggested driving “loops” to get you safely out and about during prime leaf peeping season. Be sure to program your mapping app, or set your gps, for an amazing drive through the wonders of fall in Connecticut.
Loop #1: Scenic Fairfield County
Loop #2: Litchfield Hills Ramble
Loop #3: Hartford West
Loop #4: Exploring the Quiet Corner
Loop #5: Mystic Country & the Coast
Loop #6: Connecticut River Color
