Appalachian Fall Foliage Tour, Ohio

Ohio is becoming quite the contender for honors as a top spot for foliage. The entire state provides a plethora of opportunities to witness the season's finest, but the Appalachian Fall Foliage Driving Tour wins big on scenery and activities. The 56-mile southeastern drive travels from Marietta up route 60, connecting with route 78 before ending in Glouster, and covers some of the same pavement as the Ohio River Scenic Byway for a brief stint.

Not to be missed: The historic riverboat town of Marietta, where visitors can witness the colorful fall panoramas from the water.
