Fall foliage trip ideas from DC going south (Nov 10, 11 and 12)

Jump to last reply

We have been thinking of doing a fall foliage trip for a few years but never actually got around to it. So this year on our way back from another international trip, we are planning to stop by DC from 11/10 - 11/12 before flying back home to South Florida. As part of the plan, we will arrive at DC around 10 am on 11/10, pick up a rental car from there, roam around for 3 days and fly back on the evening of 11/12. We have family in Newport News, VA and it seems pretty nice from the pics so we were thinking of driving from DC to Newport News, VA and stay at their place for the the two nights.

I did some basic search and saw a few 'scenic drives' mentioned on some of the sites but wasn't sure which will be the best fit for us. So wanted to see if the locals can give us some pointers... Of course, if you think the above doesn't make sense and our time will be better spent some where else, feel free to chime in as well.

Thanks in advance.
