Fall Foliage Map: Interactive Map of Fall Leaves

Fall Foliage Map: Interactive Map of Fall Leaves

I’m personally not big on camping, unless it is in a four or five star hotel. Am I spoiled, yes. Have I done the other, yes. Do I appreciate all it offers to those who enjoy it, most definitely. That is why when I saw Hipcamp’s Fall Foliage Map:  www.hipcamp.com/discover/fall-foliage-map, I felt the need to share it. I have many family members, friends and acquaintances who love camping and this map with the campground listings is amazing.

Is is a startup that creates new places to stay in nature by unlocking access to beautiful private lands such as nature preserves, farms, and ranches. Aside from their cool interactive map, Hipcamp has hand-picked a few unique nature stays in America’s top 5 leaf-viewing regions:

So, for those of you into camping, I am sure you will find something you like. I think this site is amazing. I am going to my college reunion this weekend at Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois. I will be in a hotel, not a 4 or 5 star but then on to Chicago for two nights before flying to New England to take in the changing leaves and visiting with family and friends–no camping for me, but I hope you enjoy this post and resource.
