Take This Gorgeous Fall Foliage Road Trip To See North Dakota Like Never Before

The fall season is in full effect right now and is transforming the North Dakota landscapes into canvases full of vibrant colors. Whether it just be within the tree rows on the side of the road or the dense trees along the rivers and lakes, all the leaves are turning into a sight like none you have ever seen. If you’re looking for the absolute best places to see in order to experience the season at its most beautiful, we have the road trip just for you.

This road trip mainly covers the north and central eastern portion of North Dakota, but those of you in western North Dakota should check out our Natural Wonders Road Trip, focusing on that part of the state. Many of the places featured on that trip are just as beautiful in the fall. Central North Dakotans – the ND Parks & Rec site has some great recommendations for awesome fall foliage viewing in all areas here.

After this, you can either head east from Devils Lake back to Grand Forks and then south on I-29 to return to Fargo, or take the long way and go further south from Devils Lake to Jamestown and go east from there. Of course, you could do this entire route in reverse or other ways if you choose – just change the starting point and order on Google Maps.
