It’s that time of year again. The anticipation started back during the heat of summer. Thursday, Sept. 22, brings the first of Arkansas’s fall foliage reports, which will be posted on Arkansas.com. Just look for the cluster of orange, yellow and russet leaves. A group of spotters around the state keep the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism updated on the status of the changing of the leaves in their area. These are compiled, then posted, on Arkansas.com late each Thursday afternoon during the season. You can also get the reports by calling 1-800-NATURAL.

In addition to the color reports, you’ll find suggestions of various scenic drives throughout the state. While cruising the backroads of The Natural State, look for roadside stands to get your fall decorations, including pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks and more. Check the Arkansas Agritourism page to get locations. Several farms also offer corn and hay mazes, hay rides, pick-your-own pumpkin patches, and more during fall.

You can find information on these in the calendar of events.  If a motorcycle or bicycle is your preferred mode of transportation, you can download the “Let’s Ride” motorcycling brochure or the “On/Off Road” bicycling brochure. Then hit the road and enjoy the best of Autumn in Arkansas. Don’t forget your camera!
