New River Gorge National River
West Virginia

In West Virginia, one of the most picturesque places to view fall foliage is at the New River Gorge National River, especially at the New River Gorge Bridge. If you’re feeling brave, you can stand atop the3,000-foot bridge and look down nearly 900 feet to the bottom of the gorge itself. The bridge opens for pedestrian traffic on the third Saturday of October and visitors can call ahead to make arrangements for a guided tour of the bridge itself. Additionally, other areas of the New River Gorge park offer trails and scenic overlooks. Adventure seekers are also able to go rafting down the New River itself. Plan your trip here.  Peak Viewing Times: 4th Week of October.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
