You’ll Be Happy To Hear That Tennessee’s Fall Foliage Is Expected To Be Bright And Bold This Year
This may not come as a shock to most locals, but with a warm and rainy winter ahead no one was too sure how well indigenous plant life would react. The warmer than normal temperatures should keep snow far away from the Volunteer State, but we wouldn’t mind a chilly cooldown or two. If you’re looking to gallivant in autumnal splendor, you don’t have to look far – here’s a quick peek at what’s to come.
We love fall in Tennessee. The entire state explodes in a stunning display of red, orange, yellow and brown leaves, creating a rainbow that only comes with October and November.
Most folks flock to the mountains of the east, what with the Great Smoky Mountains and their gorgeous vistas and reams of beautiful trees.
On the eastern side of the state, we'll start seeing the leaves begin to change around the end of September, with the entire state slowly being engulfed by the foliage through the first week in October.
Peak season for the east should begin in mid-October, so make sure you plan those trips and pack your camera! The mountains are also a bit chilly, being so high up there, so remember to bring all your sweaters and thick socks.
The middle state will follow the east's autumnal beauty in time, reaching peak foliage close to October 22nd.
Memphis is a lucky one. The stretch of their colorful fall stretches straight through to the first week in November, once the rest of the state has already passed their peak.
What part of the state do you live in? Do you feel like the fall foliage timeline for the year is on the right track?
No matter where you are in the state, if you're in Tennessee, then you're bound to fall in love with the beauty of our great homeland all over again this autumn season. We can hardly wait.
While you’re in our great state, you should quite possibly take a look at
this barn out in the countryside – it’s more than meets the eye.
