Fall foliage trip: Finger Lakes or Lake George/VT?

Jump to last reply

Hello! My husband and I always take a fall foliage driving trip in October. When we lived in Manhattan, we stayed in Nashua, New Hampshire and typically drove through NH, the White Mountains and southern Vermont.

We've now moved to NJ, so we'll be starting out a little more west and are looking at other areas to change it up. I'm considering both the Finger Lakes region, or Lake George (as a base). Each is about 4 hours from us, so a perfect starting place.

I am intrigued by Lake George in part because of its proximity to Burlington, VT - we've never ventured that far north in Vermont and would like to. Then again, the Finger Lakes region in general looks lovely.

We'll be going Columbus Day Weekend (I know, traffic!) and are always looking for that "quintessential" fall experience - great leaf peeping, apple cider and maple syrup, cute towns with white churches, perhaps a low-key hike. We'll have our 1-year-old with us for this trip as well.

Thanks for any thoughts!
