Late September is Peak Fall Foliage in Northwestern Vermont, Central and Northern New York

Start making plans… It’s fall foliage roadtrip time! Late September is prime time for fall foliage in Northwestern Vermont, Central and Northern New York. Now’s the time to plan that perfect fall foliage drive!

The country’s most panoramic fall vistas can be seen from the Northeast’s Interstate highways. In New York “The Adirondack Northway”, Interstate 87 has some of the best views anywhere. Beginning in Saratoga Springs and northward thru Glens Falls, Lake George,Plattsburg, and on to the Canadian border.

Vermont’s I-89 is a beautiful drive anytime of year, but fall is especially breathtaking. Late September in Northwestern Vermont means peak autumn colors along I-89 northward from Montpelier, thru Stowe,Burlington, St. Albans, and on to 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-89, 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.

Check out our fall foliage maps to find peak colors in your area.

Empire State Building Soars With New Elevator Experience For Observatory Visitors

Planning your next roadtrip? Empire State Realty Trust announced a new elevator experience for visitors to the Empire State Building (ESB). One-of-a-kind mini-shows with sound will play on the ceiling of the elevator cars both on the ascent to and descent from the world-famous 86th Floor Observatory. The shows unveiled in three elevators, with the balance of the elevators being upgraded over time.

From the moment the elevator doors close, the ascent show transports visitors back in time to the construction of ESB, spotlighting workers, machinery, and materials in a fanciful depiction of the construction process.

On the descent, the show prepares visitors for the ride back to the New York City streets by showcasing different features of the art deco masterpiece lobby, with distinct features floating in to ultimately form the iconic mural that adorns the Fifth Avenue entrance.

“Located at the heart of New York City, the Empire State Building provides fresh, fun and educational experiences,” said Jean-Yves Ghazi, Director of the Observatory. “Our new elevator shows not only add entertainment for our visitors but by putting them on the ceiling, we give each visitor the opportunity to be fully immersed in our world.”
