The best colors for the fall, according to Only In Your State, can be found by taking this Missouri Road Trip. They say you need to start at Weston Bend State Park in Weston, Missouri. There you will get a view of the Missouri River and fall colors all around.

Other stops on the trip include Parkville, Arrow Rock, Hermann Wine Trail (which I can say really is the best spot for anything fall), Elephant Rocks State Park, Taum Sauk Mountain, and ending at Table Rock Lake State Park. This really is the ultimate fall road trip. Any and all of these spots have their own beauty about them and it's on the road trip you will find out what it is.

If you don't want to take a road trip there are a few places that you might want to think about visiting this upcoming season. Any Missouri backroads - really just get in a jeep and go. Lake of the Ozarks, any of the several Missouri State Parks, and any trail you can imagine. Basically, just get off the couch and go explore you just never know when you will find.
