The 19 Best Places To Enjoy New Jersey’s Fall Foliage In Early October

New Jersey has three major foliage zones, peaking throughout autumn. The first zone includes the northernmost portions of the state, and it’s currently heading into peak season. The second zone encompasses over half of the state, from north to south. It peaks in mid to late October. Zone three consists of our southernmost counties and will not peak until early November.

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:
