Are there any places in the Deep South that get fall?

The lowland south gets very pleasant fall weather. Temps are in the 60s at night in Jacksonville these days. I don't know about color change though.

Yes. Fall comes and ends on the same day as every other place in the Northern Hemisphere.

Probably until around Thanksgiving. Maybe a week or two before Thanksgiving.

What does that mean? You mean that it takes until around Thanksgiving for it to get like that in the south?

NW SC, NE Georgia- for these deep south states- the higher elevations will give you gorgeous color and cooler temps

Fall happens in the Deep South, but it's later. I went to The low country of SC for thanksgiving a few years ago. Sweet gum trees, crape myrtles, and a few others were in their colorful states. but with the land being so flat and the forests being primarily pine, you don't get the postcard views. I'd imagine the mountainous areas of the Deep South have more deciduous trees and more places to get nice sweeping views of the colorful forests.

We have a nice mixture of pine and hardwoods here in northeast Texas. It's similar to the northeastern parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. We don't get the postcard views of New England, but we do get the enjoyment of changing fall colors and cool breezes - just later in the year, around Thanksgiving here rather than October. Maybe a week or two before Thanksgiving. October is usually warm.

One thing I really love about October and November here in Texas is that the sky turns a brilliant azure blue, and it's HUGE, and often filled with crisp white clouds. I mean, the sky is always "big" here in Texas, but it's the brilliant blue that becomes very pronounced during the fall here.

Also, though the days are usually still warm through October, the nights dip into the 50s most nights, and the humidity drops a lot too. It's great for "porch sitting" or eating on restaurant patios.
