The fall foliage holds some of the most beautiful sights that you can see in Illinois, which is why you should take a drive just to admire it! Here are some of the best fall foliage drives in the Midwest.
If you want to take a scenic drive up north, this road is the one to do it on. It’ll take you through hills, woods, and unique towns. Plus, it winds the whole way against the north bank of the Wisconsin River, so the water views will be gorgeous too.
Head out to the great ol’ west on this route. This road rides alongside another river, the great Mississippi! It’ll also lead you to the gorgeous Palisades State Park, where you can find beautifully cliffs, trees, and even an eagle or two!
The word “wine” is in the name, so it must be included in the list. While the wineries along the way are certainly nice stops (as long as you don’t drink and drive), there are also gorgeous views along this route. You’ll be driving through dense, beautiful woods and bluffs overlooking lakes.
What’s a crisp, autumn drive without covered bridges? Enjoy the beautiful trees along the curving roads and the classic covered bridges along the way.
