They got the Smokeys but I can't believe they didn't mention the Blue Ridge mountains or the Scenic Blue Ridge Parkway in Western North Carolina. This list lost all credibility with that omission!

Agreed.  Actually, any of the national parks in the Southern Appalachian mountains -- e.g., Chattahoochee NF, Cohutta Wilderness, Cherokee NF, Nantahala NF, just for starters.

The North Georgia mountains, Eastern Tenn., Western North Carolina has vast wilderness areas and 5,000 mountains that together make for breathtaking autumn colors.

The trip down Illinois Rte. 2 from Byron to Oregon in the Rock river Valley is breathtaking. We always look forward to the giant statue of Chief Blackhawk appearing around a bend in the river. He was created by the sculptor Borglund and he appears to be standing watch over the lands his tribe once owned. Truly beautiful. Drive to the top of the hills where the statue is and gaze down at the valley, and you will see a color pallette that is really Fall.

Lake Superior shore of Upper Michigan. No contest.

Ten years ago when I moved from Idaho to New York, I traveled that route down to the MacInoc bridge (did I spell that right). I was blown away by the color and how beautiful it was. Now that you've reminded me I may need to plan a road trip out that way..

Mackinaw or Mackinac, but yes, my home is where it's at in terms of natural beauty!

The Lake Superior Scenic Drive to the Gunflint Trail into the Boundary Waters. Spectacular!

Yes I can't believe North Shore of Minnesota is not included?

Nice pics and pretty places, but I think that Fayetteville, West Virginia.. Most of West Virginia is prettier in the Fall than the places on this list..

Overall it is the appalachian mountains which Run almost along the entire east from around Georgia to Maine. They did include the Poconos which has the best scenery around Historic Jim Thorpe, Albrightsville and Split Rock PA. areas!

I hope everyone enjoys this fall's display...except those of you who insist on calling it "foilage." Seriously, you appreciate the stunning beauty of Autumn but can't be bothered to pronounce it correctly? GAH!

I can't bring myself around to say "leaf peeper." That almost sounds creepy.

I am partial to the Adirondacks..Hike a high peak during foliage and when you get to the top the view is magnificent..Nothing but mountains of all colors and lakes..Gorgeous!! But it takes one good rainfall for it to be over and done!!

Poconos, Adirondacks, Smokeys, Blue Ridge, are all along the same chain of Appalachians. All beautiful in my book. Maine to north Alabama.

Take a drive down the west side of Canandaigua Lake (Canandaigua to Naples or vice versa) on a sunny day in the late afternoon. Its part of the Finger Lakes in Western New York and is, by far, the most beautiful foliage display I've ever seen (and I've lived in both the Adirondack area and Vermont). Oh, and be sure to pick up a grape pie in Naples!

Pennsylvania definitely deserves to be on this list but I'm a little surprised they picked Allentown. Western PA, particularly the area north of Pittsburgh, has unbelievable autumn foliage. The immediate vicinity around Allentown just reeks of depression (any time of year).

I agree, I live near Allentown (12 miles) and I prefer the Poconos, or even Renovo PA. They have the fall foliage festival there, and it's a good time.
