The Fall Color Travel Videos

Acadia National Park in Maine

This beautiful park is a wonder to visit in any season but the fall is simply amazing.  This video captured by the More Than Just Parks team takes you on a mystical tour of the park in fall.  Splendid color accompanied by a brilliant music composition will have you coming back to see this one and perhaps wondering why you need to put this park on your bucket list.  This park is one of the earliest to get fall color the USA.

Virginia Blue Ridge

The Blue Ridge mountains in southern Virginia are a popular destination for fall color in the mid-Atlantic USA.  Are you ready to put a halt on your hectic life for two minutes and then maybe a whole weekend?  Autumn color, mountain life and your life in general could stop for a moment when you watch this video because you will be in the Blue Ridge time zone (not to be confused with the Twilight zone). We applaud the excellent work of Dave Perry in transporting us into a world that captures so much of what a fall color travel adventure can be.  It just takes two minutes and if it doesn't change your life, it will make you think about exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia for some spectacular fall color and cultural experiences. If you like to experiment you should consider just listening to this first without watching the video and then watch it again with the video.  How close did your experience match what the videographer created? Just for some fun.

As a footnote for those planning a visit after viewing the video, the city is a foodtopia for those that love to hike.  What could be better than exploring the forests nearby and following with a gastronomical experience at dinner.  It has one of our favorite chocolatiers, the French Broad, with its popular chocolate lounge just in case the chocolate chips in your granola bar on that hike didn't quite satisfy your chocolate craving.
