Agreed. Western PA as well.

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.
Me, neither. Here in CO, the leaves in the mtns are usually at their peak for about two weeks.

The bold is true. Here in metro Denver, if we get an early snow before the leaves have changed color (e.g. September), the leaves just turn black and fall off. The weather here can be beautiful for months, from Sept. through November, even into December sometimes, with 1-2 snows in there as well, just to give us a foretaste of the season to come. There's an urban legend there is always snow for Halloween. It's almost true. Denver Halloween Snow Statistics Through 2009

Upper Minnesota's fall foliage is absolutely stunning, too.

Nice spots out west, if you poke around. This is from Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona.

I wanted to add, for those who asked about festivals, many towns around here have "Oktoberfests" sometimes even in September, as the weather gets funkier in October, e.g. it's more likely to snow.

A few more pictures of Wisconsin fall, these are all outside Door County (which I posted on the previous page) & from different quadrants of the state...

Great River Road on the Mississippi River, western WI border:


Lodi (north of Madison), Lake Wisconsin in the background:


Bayfield Peninsula, northern WI (Lake Superior in the background):


A more Western-looking scene post-peak color with bluffs & mesas in the Central WI Sands:


Southeast WI, Milwaukee suburbs looking towards the moraines and Holy Hill:

I've never done a New England fall color tour, but I will cross that one off within the next few years. Very beautiful.

Maybe you should drive up into Arkansas during November to get a break. It's no Vermont but it's better than Houston.
