As far back as I can remember, as the leaves turn, we travel. You don’t have to be an outdoor enthusiast to take in great fall foliage. The season of autumn beauty is upon us and in fact, you can track the season and the leaf-changing very easily, which before was more of a crap shoot and a chance.
Before you get in the car, pack up the kids, and Fido, I will share with you great apps for all of you leaf peepers. That’s right, those of us that travel to the fall foliage and love to marvel and ogle at the foliage are officially known as Leaf Peepers so welcome to your new club!
Better matters so we all seek out the better of the season, rather than dwelling on the impending cooler weather. Lavishly live life out loud and let’s take a look at the great apps for leaf peepers.
Great Apps For Leaf Peepers
You know that I only share what makes life easier to lavishly live travel out loud and today I have some awesome ideas for using your smartphone to be an official USA Leaf Peeper! I travel because I love our world, and this is simply an incredible time of year for travel. The season of Fall is here and WOW the color is show stopping outdoors!
I GOTTA GO
Do you recognize that phrase? Travel brings on the need to find the rest areas, and your smartphone and this app are the solution! Going on any trip requires bathroom breaks unless of course you are a camel right? So don’t worry about having to stop, this app has got your back!
No matter what journey you venture on, my best advice is to know where the rest areas are because someone always has to go. Let’s keep things real and focus on what matters. If you know where to find a rest area, you can relax and enjoy the ride and the scenery.
The Rest Area Finder App is perfection as they are crowd-sourced and listed by the exact mile marker, covering all 50 states, and all major U.S. interstates, it’s got you covered!
THE LEAF PEEPER MAP APP
If you are not traveling around an area you are familiar with or really just want to road trip, use the foliage leaf peepr to get the most out of peeping. Isn’t that word funny? I mean, all the keeps coming to my mind is a ‘peeping tom!’
This is Yankee Magazine’s Leaf Peepr app, and it lets all of you peepers our there find and then also report the best darn foliage out there. The foliage reporters, post comments and rate the foliage status, so totally off the charts cool right?
Ratings go from green to fading or even gone. An app that lets you report and seek, so perfectly aligned with leaf peeping.
GOTTA EAT, GOTTA SLEEP
As a TripAdvisor Ambassador, I totally would be remiss if I did not suggest what I use the most in my personal life, the TripAdvisor Hotels and Restaurants App. You can trust the millions of traveler reviews, photos, and maps that are on this app to guide you to the best of the best, after all, we all want good, right?
If you need a hotel you can book through the app, and you are sure to find other great things to do in every area you are in, so grab this app!
I personally don’t like rain and foliage peeping. When the sun shines on those red and yellow leaves there is nothing like it, and I want to see that sun-kissed seal of approval from the sky Gods, so I use my weather app to monitor the day. There are a lot of apps out there, but this one is probably the most popular and reliable.
Better matters with your service, with your travel and when you want to get the most out of your journeys. Plan ahead, add your Apps to your phone and away you go. You are now armed and ready for the incredible autumn season and of course you have the great apps for leaf peepers to really dig in and enjoy! Dana XO ~
