The fall season is finally upon us and that could only mean one thing, the crisp, cool nights are finally here; we can finally go out without antihistamines or risking heatstroke.

University of Virginia
Head over to Charlottesville and visit the University of Virginia for amazingly scenic fall foliage sites. This prestigious campus was founded close to two centuries ago and is now the United States’ highest ranking higher education institutions. During this season, you can expect to see tremendous amounts of differently colored leaves spread out all across perfectly manicured grounds.
The Purgatory Mountain towers over the Great Valley, overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Carolina Road beginning at the town of Buchanan at the base of the mountain was known to be so treacherous, with its rough terrain and sharp bends that drivers in the early 20th Century began refereeing to it as the ‘Road to Purgatory’. Of course the safety standards of this road have drastically improved since then, so do not worry, you are safe. Take the road to purgatory and enjoy the winding route as you are amazed by the overhead views of the majestic fall foliage of Botetourt County.
Virginia has had eight native sons rise to the highest office in the land, and that includes four of the first five presidents. Thomas Jefferson lived in Monticello, James Monroe in Highland, and James Madison in Montpelier. You can visit each of these homes during this season and explore the grounds for magnificent Fall season views. These homes are just a few miles apart, so if you commence your tour early enough, you just might be able to thoroughly explore each of these scenic locations. Enjoy the beautiful Fall foliage as you stroll the walking trails that each of these homes provide and marvel at the fact that the founding fathers once strolled the same trails centuries ago.
