It’s almost October, and you know what that means. If you’re on the East Coast you’re probably whipping out your fall-scented candles and Halloween decorations by now. As the leaves begin to fall and change colors, we’ve got you covered with a list of the most beautiful places to see fall foliage on your next road trip.

1. Vermont

Vermont is famous for more than maple syrup and skiing. The picturesque state is home to many hikes, small towns, and mountains that are just bursting with color. Be sure to check out Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak, and revel in the view.

2. New Hampshire

Tune up your favorite fall playlist, and start your drive on The Kancamagus Highway. As you drive through the White Mountain National Forest, watch the leaves fall and the mountains glow in hues of red and orange. Along this route, you’ll find several overlooks, hikes, and attractions.

3. Maine

Enjoy some of the finest coastal scenery that New England has to offer by starting your journey in Portland, and driving along Route 1, for some views of lighthouses and old mansions. Continue north for about 160 miles until you hit Acadia National Park, and take in the breathtaking foliage.
