There’s no better time than fall for a road trip. The weather isn’t too hot or cold. School’s back in session, which means fewer folks crowding roads and kids screaming at rest stops. And when leaves start to change, that trip along picturesque highways can be just as enjoyable as a destination.
Just a few hours from the city, there are plenty of spots to soak in autumn temps and scenery.
Some of the region’s prettiest fall foliage can be found in the hills of wild and wonderful West Virginia. Head three hours southeast to the small town of Romney for a ride on the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad (potomaceagle.info). The three-hour train ride takes you alongside the beautiful Potomac River. Bring binoculars — there’s a chance to spot a bald eagle during the trip.
