Nestled in between New York and the rest of New England, Connecticut dresses up in her finest for fall.
Usually at their peak around mid-October, fall foliage throughout the state may include a scenic country drive along Merrit Parkway with stops in Greenwich, Stamford, and New Canaan, or a coastal trail that combines Connecticut's beaches and maritime history with the vivid reds, yellows and golds of Autumn.
But don't stop there! Further north, the state is alive with color in the River Valley region while Route 7 along western Connecticut is often called one of the best scenic fall drives in the country.
