It's a No here in Seattle. Very few trees change color and those that do are not native to the region, they've been planted here and there in the suburbs.

I used to live in Michigan and fall was exceptionally-beautiful. I don't think any region comes close to New England though. I'd love to spend 1 week there exploring the fall destinations.

Asheville, NC has glorious falls with full color range red, yellow, orange, brown and green pines. Especially along the Blue Ridge Parkway (road is open) with fantastic views!

Yes, the fall in NYC is one of the best times to be in NYC. (The other time is in the spring.)

Yes we get fall in the DC area, but I don't like how the media makes late fall blend in with early winter that gives you the feeling that the two seasons sort of "share an apartment", with the lease eventually favoring winter, mostly ignoring Thanksgiving (Wal-Mart's Thanksgiving section of greeting cards is outnumbered by Christmas by like a 6 to 1 ratio). Why decorate winter-related things when there are still some leaves on the trees and there is no snow yet? In our area, most of the snow falls after the holiday season. This year is a good example. Most of mid/late September, while not exactly cool and crisp during the day, was refrishingly mild and a nice change of pace from the heat of summer, even if it wasn't as hot this year. DC isn't getting its first "hint of winter" until today, meaning that the peak of fall (Oct/early Nov) was enjoyed without any hint of winter, and just a small reminder of the past summer at the start of October, and it wasn't until this weekend when our area went past peak with the foliage. To me fall isn't "over" until either the first accumulating snow or when 99% of the leaves are off the trees plus the grass turns from green to tan, no matter what corporations and chambers of commerce say.

Fall in Seattle looks very nice.

Not really. We get some leaves changing, but it's nothing like you would find in places up north.

Western Montana in general has an incredible fall foliage that, if I'm not mistaken, hits its peak from about October 1st through October 15th. Late September through early November is my favorite time of year around here--to me, the climate can feel pleasantly similar to that of the coastal PNW during, say, mid-late August for a good chunk of that period.

But do I get to experience a true fall season? Aesthetically, yes, but it just doesn't stay in the air for as long as I'd like.
