Best Places to View Fall Foliage in Connecticut

Fall is arguably the most beautiful time of the year and this is no different in the Constitution State. At this time of the year, leaves burst into a myriad of vivid colors, transforming the vegetation in the environment from the plain green we are used to throughout most of the year, and making our world much brighter and more beautiful. Connecticut has the longest fall foliage season in New England and for that reason, our Connecticut limo service specialists have decided to compile a list of some of the best locations to view the foliage.

For your nature tour, we recommend employing the services of our Connecticut car service for all your transportation needs. Our professionally trained and knowledgeable chauffeurs have an intimate understanding of their area of operation and will transfer you to any one of these amazing locations in a fast and expedient manner as you simply sit back, enjoy the luxuries and amenities of our vehicles, and marvel at the colors whisking past your window on your way to your next destination. The following are our favorite fall foliage destinations in the Constitution State. Have a wonderful season!

New Fairfield

This affluent town is located in Fairfield County, and due to the fact that it is primarily known for its downtown shopping centers, this small town is often overlooked by tourists when it comes to its natural resources and, particular to this case, its magnificent fall foliage. We especially recommend heading over to the Squantz Pond State Park, one of Connecticut’s most beautiful state parks. The park has beautiful rolling fields that overlook the Squantz Pond and is also right next to the Pootatuck State Forest, which has numerous hiking trails and rocky overviews where you will have a bird’s eye view of the beautiful fall foliage as well as the Candlewood Lake.

Litchfield

Head over to Litchfield County for some of the most alluring fall foliage views in the country. In Litchfield you will have a number of hiking options, with our prime recommendations being the Mount Tom State Park and the 4,000-acre White Memorial preserve, where you will get to see Fall foliage at its best. Once you are done with leaf peeping, head over to the Litchfield Distillery, arguably Connecticut’s best spirits producers to wrap up your Litchfield excursion.

Salisbury

The Hills in the Northwest Corner in Salisbury are always the first to begin displaying the glory of the Fall season in the Constitution State. Be the first amongst your peers to witness the beauty of the season by heading to the highest peak in Connecticut; the Bear Mountain. The mountain is only a short drive away from the Massachusetts state line and standing at over 2,300 feet, your legs might feel soar on the ascend but as the expansive view becomes clearer and you can see all the amazing colors below you, it will all feel like it was worth it.
