Although we both love summer, Wicker and I (Wilde) adore fall time. From picking apples to hot cider and donuts, and who can deny that Virginia is one of the prettiest states in Autumn. But when is the best time to see the fall foliage? We've got the answer!

Although it looks like some of the leaves are changing, even dying and falling off the trees, the real change is still a few weeks away.

Wicker and Wilde are live and local

In fact, the week of October 2nd through the 9th is looking to be the utter best for checking out the leaves in the Virginia mountains and Shenandoah Valley. The entire Old Dominion should be full of color. That being said, though, areas of Central Virginia areas like Richmond will reach their peak color of fall foliage around the week of October 23rd.

If you wait until November you may be too late. We may be in the South but we still have 4 seasons and winter will be on it's way by then.
