Fall foliage Tips in Missouri

Fall foliage Tips in Missouri

Driving tours in the Missouri Ozarks are filled with the color variations of 140 different species of trees. The fall color season stretches out for weeks because of that timber variety. Begin leaf peeping season with these three steps to get the most out of Missouri’s most colorful season.

1. Be flexible, fall color lasts most of October. Missouri’s wide variety of trees means that trees change color at different times. Don’t worry that it might rain on your tour. You may get some of your best photos in dizzily days. Overcast days tend to increase fall color intensity.

2. Take the scenic route. Practically any drive across the state, east to west to west to east will guarantee you a colorful fall drive in October. You may be able to combine a fall foliage tour with other travels. Schedule a little more travel time for all trips and enjoy the ride.

3. Reserve early. If you are planning a weekend leaf peeping tour, make hotel reservations as soon as possible. Fall is the busiest time in the Ozarks. When you complete your trip, consider making reservations for next year while still at the hotel.
