Whether you are touring the state on a scenic byway, or enjoying a crisp autumn hike outdoors, everywhere you look in Vermont during the fall months is alive with bursting reds, oranges and yellows. 

Adding to the natural beauty of autumn in Vermont are a variety of festivals, events and activities that help celebrate the season.
