Technology is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
Just in time for leaf-peeping, Connecticut’s official tourism website: ctvisit.com, has installed their very own foliage finder! The service is a week-by-week breakdown to give fall lovers the most accurate and up-to-date information on where to find the best and brightest leaves.
It was created with the help of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, who will be supplying field observations and suggestions on the best driving routes.
So, there’s an extremely unique and interesting reason for creating such a handy tool: Connecticut has the largest foliage season in all of New England. Yeah, take that Massachusetts!
Then again, this map will also let you know where to AVOID if you wish to get to wherever you need to go on time. Nothing’s more enraging then getting stuck behind a dawdling leaf-peeper. I should know, I lived off a “main route” for many years.
So throughout October and November, keep checking the foliage finder to know where you can satisfy your leaf-peeping fix.
