4 Fall Foliage Drives for Leaf Peepers


I am actually quite new to the term “leaf peeping.” I first discovered it in a Huffington Post article when searching for a drivable fall foliage tour for my family.  The more I Googled it, the more I discovered it is a credible term with quite the following.  I am now one of thousands (maybe more) of “leaf peepers.”

As the weather turns crisp and the fall colors even crisper, it’s the perfect time for a Sunday afternoon drive capped off by a quaint meal at a favorite local spot. To add more purpose and intrigue to the trip, consider stopping into a few open houses to get an even better feel for the area. It may even inspire you to make a change in where you live. Or if you are currently house hunting, adding leaf peeping to the agenda could add a little “color” to your day of open houses.

To help you develop your own Sunday Funday fall foliage trip, I found a few blogs with great ideas for a peaceful drive.  And to discover local ERA companies along the way, use ERA Real Estate’s Mobie App, available on the iPad, too.
