Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
This is Missouri’s largest state park and a popular summertime vacation destination that is even more breathtaking in the Fall. The biggest crowds are gone and the outdoor temperatures generally hover in the mid 60s F. There is a scenic drive with 25 miles’ worth of beauty to explore in the comfort of your car. Best of all, this is one of the later peak areas for fall foliage.
The last two weeks of October are by far the best time to visit for leaf peeping.
