The nights are getting cold, and the air is turning crisp, a sure sign that fall has come to the Shenandoah Valley. Our real estate agents love this time of year, and there's no better time to explore our beautiful region.
From Staunton to Harrisonburg and every hill and holler between, autumn brings the Shenandoah Valley to life with a stunning display of colors. We've got your guide to exploring the best fall foliage across Central Virginia.
After a hot summer, the promise of cool weather and incredible fall foliage is our reward. The maple trees are already beginning to change, introducing a brilliant scarlet shade to the mountains. The golden yellow of the birch and poplar trees, purple dogwood leaves, orange beach, and rusty-hued oak, are sure to follow, transforming the landscape into a radiant canvas of warm colors.
Peak color usually arrives in the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding mountains in mid-October, though the exact timing is hard to predict. Any time from October 7 to 21 is sure to offer excellent leaf-peeping opportunities. Be sure to check out annual fall color report from the National Park Service to track the changing leaves in Shenandoah National Park.
