Every year, thousands of people flock to the vineyards in our region to see the leaves in all their glory.

Why We Love Leaf Peeping Season

Or maybe it’s because fall is such a beautiful time of year. Whatever the reason, there’s no denying that leaf peeping season is a special time. Here are a few reasons why we love it so much:

But these golden colors we captured on our photo shoot are pure magic.

The Activities:

There are so many fun activities to do during leaf peeping season! You can go on a hike and take in all the sights and smells of nature.
