It might not be fall yet, but autumn is close enough that we can all dream of pumpkin spice and cooler temperatures now. There are bigger dreams to be had, and those dreams have to do with hands-down the best fall foliage in the United States. This road trip will make all your fall dreams come true in less than nine hours of drive time, which sounds to me like the perfect way to spend a long weekend wrapped in the warmth of fall color. From the high overlooks of the Ozarks to the winding roads of the Ouachitas, this road trip will show you the Natural State’s fall foliage like you’ve never seen before.
