It is September, which means it is officially Fall season and the leaves are already starting to change colors! But what if you want to travel somewhere to see some lovely scenery but don’t want to be too late? Well, you are just in luck, because I have the nation’s foliage prediction right here and it can show you what the fall of 2022 may just look like.
The website is smokymountains.com, and it states that this is the ultimate visual guide to help show the changing of the leaves. This way travelers know the best time to catch peak color each year! As far as Minnesota goes, Northern Minnesota has already started to see minimal color, but the state as a whole won’t be covered with full foliage color until about October 3rd with Northern Minnesota being in peak and past peak, and Central and Southern Minnesota being in partial peak.
With this in mind, the times to explore Minnesota to see peak fall colors is between September 26th and October 17th, with the best time being between October 3rd – 10th. If you want to see the predictions for other states click here!
