New Jersey

Best Time to Go: The Garden State's upper northwest corner, dubbed the Skylands, offers some of the Mid-Atlantic's most spectacular fall foliage. Highlights include the Northwest Skylands and the Delaware Water Gap region. For the best colors, visit in mid-to-late October.

Best Drives & Best Routes: Route 23 or Hwy 206 through Sussex County; Route 29 from Lambertville north along the Delaware River; the backroads of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Where to Stay:
The riverside towns of Hunterdon County, especially Lambertville, offer some of the Skylands' best overnight accommodations, though this area is a bit of a drive from the state's upper northwest corner. Pennsylvania's Cliff Park Inn ( is a B&B only a half-hour west from NJ's High Point State Park, a superb leaf-peeping locale. Campsites and privately owned campgrounds exist throughout the region. Another place to try is the Inn at Millrace Pond (, an 18th-century gristmill-turned-inn in historic Hope Village.

Don't Miss: Hot-air ballooning (; one-hour ride from $215 per person) in Hunterdon County is a great way to experience the fall foliage from above.
