This Dreamy Road Trip Will Take You To The Best Fall Foliage In All Of New Jersey

New Jersey offers some spectacular fall foliage and it’s time to start planning your autumn adventures now. Why not take a leaf peeping road trip? Peak foliage varies depending on where in the Garden State you are, so we’ve tried to design a regional escape. The season starts late September, but this trip is best taken in mid to late October. If you live in the southern half of the state, November is the time to see leaves changing in Bass River, Brendan Byrne and Wharton.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
