Litchfield County, in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, provides a vibrantly colorful backdrop for autumn leaf peeping and fall activities. The factors that influence when leaves change colors are rain, air temperature, the amount of sugar in the leaves, as well as daylight hours. Many of the small towns and villages in Litchfield County date back to the early 1700's and offer visitors a beautiful New England charm. If you love fall, you've got to take a road trip and enjoy what the Litchfield hills are offering up right now. For more Halloween and Fall fun check out our CT Halloween and Fall Fun Guide.
