Who wants to take a road trip? Covid had us in quarantine for most of 2020 but if you’re anything like us, you’re ready to get outside (staying socially responsible and distant of course). Gather up the family and take a ride into the countryside to see the beauty of Texas in the Fall! You won’t be disappointed.
Where to see the best fall foliage in San Antonio | Autumn in San Antonio:
There’s really no way to go wrong here…but we’re going to share a list of our favorite spots to see the leave changing here in San Antonio and nearby. Hopefully these beautiful natural wonders will give you a great excuse to get out with your family and enjoy the world without having to stress about crowds, sickness, etc.
In the southern states like Texas, leaves will start to change color in late October and early November. Once they begin to change they’ll start to fall about a week after that. In the states like Tennessee, West Virginia or North Carolina you’d see the leaves changing in mid October but because the weather gets colder a little more slowly in Texas, the end of October and into mid November is prime time for checking out the fall foliage!
