Tuesday, Sept. 22, marks the first day of fall. (Not that we were counting down the days or anything.)
OK, OK … we WERE counting down the days. How could we not?! In this convoluted year that is 2020, autumn means comfort and all the things that come with it, like leaves in shades of crimson and gold, cozy sweaters, comfort food, crispy apples and sipping pumpkin spice lattes beside a roaring fire. Autumn is family and traditions and hope.
So yes, we’ve never been more excited to welcome back our favorite season. And to celebrate, Your AAA is holding a virtual Fall Fest full of stories, games, photo contests, videos and more to help you make the most of autumn in the Northeast. We’ll be updating content all season long, so make sure to check our main foliage site, AAA.com/FallFest, often to get the latest and greatest fall goodness delivered right to your laptop or phone.
Ready, Set … Fall!
Ready to kick things off? Try our Countdown to Fall crossword. (We won’t tell if you need hints.) Or if you’ve ever wondered how leaves get their glorious hues in the fall, gain some insight with this Q&A with a national park ranger.
If you’re in the mood for a great foliage road trip – and really, who isn’t? – take a peek at some of our favorite Northeast fall foliage drives, tailored to your lifestyle and preferences. Or perhaps a seaside foliage cruise is more your style. Either way, the views promise to be spectacular.

Missing Renaissance fairs? We’ve got you. Check out this interview we did last year with Elizabeth Crouse, who plays Queen Anne III at King Richard’s Faire. Huzzah!
And, of course, fall wouldn’t be complete without a few pies decorating our tables. We’ve got a few seasonal pies that would go perfectly with crisp temperatures, a festively decorated kitchen, and maybe a scoop or two of ice cream to sweeten the deal.
So happy fall, y’all. Break out the tall boots, fall decorations and pie dishes, and celebrate with us all autumn long.
