Fall Foliage Along I-95 From Virginia to Maine – Part Three: Virginia to Delaware

October is a special treat for I-95 travelers in the Northeast. That’s when fall foliage colors are at their peak all along the I-95 corridor… From Northern Virginia to Maine. This three-part series showcases fall foliage road-trips along I-95 state-by state. Let’s check out Virginia to Delaware…

Beginning in Fredericksburg, Virginia and northward to Washington, Baltimore, Maryland and Wilmington, Delaware you’ll find wonderful displays of color all around. The topography of I-95 is relatively flat along this route so you won’t get those panoramic views like you do in the mountains, so your best bet is to tour all those rural roads just off I-95 exits. You’ll find plenty of photo opportunities everywhere you turn.

In Northern Virginia, check out the fall colors along the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Designed for recreational driving, it links sites that commemorate important episodes in American history and preserve habitat for local wildlife. The parkway and its associated trails provide a scenic place to play and rest in the busy Washington, DC metropolitan area.

For northbound I-95 travelers, the Parkway begins approximately 10 miles from I-95, exit 161 (US Route 1). Take US Route 1 north to the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway (VA Route 235) east to the George Washington Memorial Parkway. From there, the Parkway is approximately 25 miles long. For southbound I-95 travelers, the George Washington Memorial Parkway begins approximately 16 miles from I-95, exit 27 (I-495). Take I-495 north to exit 43. From there, the Parkway is approximately 25 miles long. You should allow about one hour (without stopping) to drive this route or one full day to visit attractions along the way.

Maryland’s Chesapeake Country Scenic Byway is designated as an official America’s Byway. It’s an autumn road-trippers heaven providing an awe-inspiring fall displays.

The route leads to an unparalleled concentration of historic sites, magnificent estates, glorious gardens and mesmerizing museums all wrapped around splendid fall foliage colors. The Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway is designated as an official “America’s Byway“.

Fall Foliage Along I-95 From Virginia to Maine – Part Two: New Jersey to Massachusetts

October is a special treat for I-95 travelers in the Northeast. That’s when fall foliage colors are at their peak all along the I-95 corridor… From Northern Virginia to Maine. This three-part series showcases fall foliage road-trips along I-95 state-by state. Let’s check out New Jersey to Massachusetts…

Cool crisp autumn days usher in the breathtaking colors of New Jersey’s fall foliage. New Jersey’s state parks and forests provide endless opportunities to experience the brilliant transformation of the leaves. New Jersey’s Millstone Valley Scenic Byway, an official “America’s Byway“ has some of the most picturesque autumn foliage scenes. Millstone Valley Scenic Byway is approximately 28 miles long. You should allow about one hour (without stopping) or 2-3 days to visit attractions along the way.  Located in the narrow Millstone River Valley in north central New Jersey, the Millstone Valley Scenic Byway offers you a glimpse into the past where well-preserved pieces of the canal era, the revolutionary war era, and early Dutch and American heritage live on.

While New York’s portion of I-95 traverses thru mostly urban areas, if you head north on I-87 you’ll discover some of the best panoramic fall foliage views anywhere. Peak fall foliage can be seen along I-87 “The Adirondack Northway” northward from New York City thru Newburgh, Kingston,  Hudson and  Albany.

Almost all of Connecticut is showing peak fall foliage colors in late October. While I-95 in Connecticut is much like New York in that it traverses thru urban areas. The Merritt Parkway, CT Route 169, I-84 and I-91 offer remarkable fall foliage views.

From there, Connecticut State Route 169 is approximately 32 miles long. You should allow about one hour (without stopping), or one full day to visit attractions along this route.

While Rhode Island is small, there’s no shortage of fall colors here and this state shows its brightest colors in late October. Western and northern Rhode Island are heavily wooded and are exploding with color this time of year. Get of I-95 just about anywhere and you won’t be disappointed.  Blackstone Valley region including Pawtucket are great places to start. Check out Roger Williams Park and Zoo in Providence;  Blithewold Mansion, Gardens, and Arboretum in Bristol and at Colt State Park on the eastern shore of Narragansett Bay.

Like Connecticut, just about all of Massachusetts is in the midst of peak color in late October. I-90, I-91, and I-84 offer great panoramic vistas without wandering off an exit.  What’s cool about viewing fall colors from the Interstate? The experience is totally different in either direction. Drive one way on I-90, I-91 or I-84, turn around and head back and you’ll see a whole new perspective right before your eyes! You can also easily spend several days exploring small towns and villages directly off the Interstate exits along the way.

Try the Massachusetts North Shore Loop for a fall foliage roadtrip from a seaside perspective. Back in the 18th and 19th centuries, the coastal towns along Massachusetts’ North Shore were home to the production of magnificent wooden ships that set sail for ports in Asia and Africa, and returning great wealth to the area. Many of the majestic homes and buildings constructed during that era, still stand against the backdrop of some of the most beautiful coastline on the Atlantic. Add a brilliant fall foliage background to an already picture perfect setting and you have memories to last a lifetime.

Fall Foliage Along I-95 From Virginia to Maine – Part One: New Hampshire and Maine

Mid October is a special treat for I-95 travelers in the Northeast. That’s when fall foliage colors are at their peak all along the I-95 corridor… From Northern Virginia to Maine. This three-part series showcases fall foliage road-trips along I-95 state-by state. Let’s check out New Hampshire and Maine…

While fall foliage in nearly all of Vermont is past peak viewing, central and southern New Hampshire and all but the northernmost regions of Maine are at peak conditions.

In New Hampshire, you’ll find excellent color along I-93 from Salem, northward thru Londonderry, Manchester, Concord, to Laconia. There are also excellent conditions along I-89 from Concord northward thru New London to Lebanon. New Hampshire’s portion of I-95 is short (only 16 miles) and runs along the extreme southern portion of the state, but if you jump off any of its exits and wander a few miles east or west you’ll discover what fall in New England is all about… small towns with quintessential picturesque streets and white steepled churches every few miles.

Try this loop… From Concord, take I-89 north thru New London to Enfield. Leave I-89 at exit 17 and take US Route 4 east thru Canaan to Danbury. From Danbury take NH Route 104 east thru Bristol and onto New Hampton where you jump on I-93 south thru Tilton and on to Concord. You’ll find a little bit of everything along this route, panoramas, small towns, rural highways and plenty of stops along the way.

The entire length of I-95 in Maine passes thru peak fall foliage colors in Mid October. End to end… over 300 miles of color from Kittery to Houlton. Like New Hampshire, jump off just about any I-95 exit and you’ll find small towns worthy of all the storage space your camera memory has available.

Begin you trip with a little outlet shopping in Kittery, home to several large outlet malls. Travel north on I-95 thruKennebunk, Biddeford and Scarborough to Portland, or take US Route 1 which runs parallel to I-95. It’s a little slower and thru small coastal towns, but there’s plenty to see and do along the way.

From Portland, continue your journey north thru Lewiston, Gardiner, Augusta, Waterville, Bangor, Old Town and on toHoulton and the Canadian Border.

What’s cool about viewing fall colors from the Interstate? The experience is totally different in either direction. Drive north on I-95, turn around and head south and you’ll see a whole new perspective right before your eyes! You can easily spend several days exploring small towns and villages directly off the Interstate exits along the way.
