"Travel's Best Fall Foliage Road Trips" for 2013 (in alphabetical order by state):

Maryland, Deep Creek Lake (Peaks in early to mid-October)

Head to Deep Creek Lake in Maryland to enjoy gorgeous views by car along two fall foliage heritage tours. Motor along Route 219 up to the Deep Creek Lake overlook in McHenry, in a 90-minute driving loop that includes the lake, ski slopes and breathtaking autumn foliage. For a longer drive, try Historic National Road, which starts near Deep Creek Lake and winds through six states.

Mississippi to Hannibal, MO, Great River Road (Peaks mid-October)

Traveling along Great River Road (a collection of state and local roads which follow the course of the Mississippi River through 10 states of the United States) during autumn provides incredible leaf-peeping opportunities at every bend. This road trip finishes up in Hannibal, where you can visit Mark Twain's boyhood home and a slew of other Twain-inspired attractions.

New Hampshire, Route 112 (Peaks late September to early October)

This grand dame of foliage routes - the 'Kanc' (Kancamagus Highway) - is always worth a drive, but we suggest taking Route 112 West past the quaint little town of Woodstock, NH. Continue on Route 112 to Kinsman Notch at Beaver Pond - a great spot for beginners and pros alike to photograph fall foliage.

New York, Hudson Valley (Peaks late September to early October)

As an agricultural area, Duchess County in the Hudson Valley of New York has some of the most beautiful land you'll ever set your eyes on - sinuous roads, sweeping vistas, elevation changes, barns and more barns...and a cool diner for lunch. Use Route 82 and Route 44 in Salt Point, NY, as your "bookends" and all the roads in between as your playground.

Northeast Pennsylvania, Ricketts Glen State Park (Peaks early to mid-October)

The Northeast is blessed with beautiful fall foliage color due to an abundance of sugar maple and birch trees that turn vibrant orange, red and yellow each year. Ricketts Glen State Park off Route 29 and Route 487 in northeast Pennsylvania showcases some of the best of the season. The combination of 22 waterfalls, mountains and gorgeous 200-year-old trees make for absolutely stunning photos.

Northeast Pennsylvania, Route 507 Around Lake Wallenpaupack (Peaks early to mid-October)

Another great spot even closer to the Big Apple is Route 507 around Lake Wallenpaupack, also in northeast Pennsylvania. Stop in Hawley for some lunch and be sure to take the hour scenic boat ride around the lake for more stunning photos.

Vermont, Route 7 between Bennington and Rutland (Peaks late September)

In southern Vermont, Route 7 runs north/south through the Green Mountains. During a stretch just north of Bennington is a valley between two ridgelines covered in trees, many of them maples and birch.

Virginia, Front Royal to Route 211, Skyline Drive (Peaks early to mid-October)

The 105-mile Skyline Drive through Virginia's Shenandoah National Park is a must-see for fall foliage. A great section of the Skyline Drive is from Front Royal to Rt. 211, around 32 miles, with plenty of overlooks. The park sees upwards of 250,000 visitors in October, so get peeping before 10 a.m. To avoid the crowds it is best to go during the week.

West Virginia, Harpers Ferry (Peaks early to mid-October)

An easy drive from Washington, D.C., Harpers Ferry in West Virginia has fall foliage that's worth the drive with the whole family. Kids can easily manage the Jefferson Rock hike, which is less than a mile and has a vista overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Another good spot for leaf peeping is Bolivar Heights, a Civil War battlefield across from the park entrance. You'll find easy, flat trails and great views.

Wisconsin, Frank Lloyd Wright Design Tour (Peaks around early October)

Fall is the perfect time of year to visit American architectural icon Frank Lloyd Wright's organic designs, which are particularly stunning when set amidst the changing fall foliage. Wright's homes and buildings were designed to work in harmony with their environment. Driving through southern Wisconsin, some highlights include Taliesin, Wright's summer home, Wingspread, the "epitome of organic architecture," and the Seth Peterson Cottage, which you can rent as a vacation home.
