I'm not aware of anywhere with a 3-month colored Fall, really.

East Coasters are surely going to prop up New England, and NE is very nice in Fall. A comparable area is the MN/WI/MI region, especially along Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. Where I grew up (Door County WI) there are tons of festivals celebrating the season, and I've never seen a region more beautiful in Fall than northern Door County.

Agreed. Close to three months though, if you don't mind the trees being bare for part of it. Starts getting crisp and cool in Sept and last through about Thanksgiving if I remember correctly. Farmers markets full of local apples and pumpkins and gourds and cider, yum.

Washington DC is very beautiful in autumn. I can't comment on New England since I haven't been but it looks astounding. Here's DC:

Northern Michigan is beautiful, and the entire west coast up along Lake Michigan (haven't been to the other coasts in the fall). I've also never been to the UP but it looks pretty amazing in pictures. Northern New England as well, where you've got the fall foliage plus the mountain scenery. Can't get much better than that!

Parts of the upper south have spectacular fall colors. We have it here in the Ozarks. Our forests are hardwoods. We have pleasant weather and crazy colors.

Vermont & New Hampshire. Those pictures in the calendars are not photoshopped.

Vermont is seriously one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen when it's the fall. The vibrancy of the colors and emptiness of some areas, both rural and mountainous, is just stunning when combined. We have great falls here in NJ too but not quite as dramatic or long lasting as Vermont. The whole northeast "wins," though, if we go by region. Subregion, New England. State, Vermont.

I would say New England > Upper Midwest > Midatlantic > Great Lakes > Southeast/PNW > the rest
