In Wisconsin, here's the perfect time to experience the fall colors.

When I was a kid, my favorite season was by far summer. I think it's the same with most children. There's no school, swimming, vacations, sleepovers, hot weather, outdoor sports, and so many activities.

I didn't like fall at all. It meant going back to school and winter was just around the corner.

My parents always made me go on an autumn drive with them. That was when we drove up to Wisconsin to see all the leaves turning colors. I hated it because I had to give up a Saturday to spend the day in the car. If I was lucky, we would stop at an apple orchard and I could get a caramel apple for a treat.

Now that I'm older, I really like the fall. The cooler weather is nice. Hoodies are my favorite type of clothing. I love football and there's plenty of it to watch. Plus, I really enjoy the feel including the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of that time of year.

Finally, I appreciate the fall colors. The colorful leaves are so beautiful. Luckily, we aren't too far from Wisconsin for a little road trip to take them in. In my mind, fall is Labor Day to Thanksgiving but when is the best time to check out the changing trees.

According to jsonline.com,

"Colors in Wisconsin tend to reach peak from the end of September through the end of October, beginning in northern Wisconsin and moving south. In 2019, colors peaked in southern Wisconsin about a week before Halloween."
