Leaf Peeper. noun. Refers to a person, esp. a tourist, who takes pleasure in viewing fall foliage.
It’s a thing, we swear. In the likely chance you haven’t heard of it check out this blog on Squidoo offering a list of top peeping destinations. (We’re not just saying that because we made top 10 either.)
So now that we’ve established Leaf Peeping is a thing you’re probably asking yourself “When is the best time to see fall colors in the Pocono Mountains?”
The Answer: Early October. Depending on summer weather, the leaves in the Pocono Mountains begin changing mid to late September and are in full color as early as the first week in October! VisitPA.com does a great job of monitoring and reporting the fall foliage throughout the season.
Travel just 95 miles from NYC through scenic mountain tops, winding river side views, and tree-shaded flames of orange to our richly colored outdoor activities and stunning lakeside amenities, Woodloch offers an array of ways to experience autumn.
So if you’re anxiously awaiting this year’s display of reds, oranges, and yellows look no further than Woodloch Resort in the Pocono Mountains… after all a true peeper couldn’t resist soaring through the trees on our 600ft zipline, just saying.
