Must See Scenic Leaf Peeping Tours in Door County, WI

September marks the beginning of fall season, especially here at the Landmark Resort in Door County, Wisconsin. Fall is the perfect time to get out and see the scenic leaf-peeping tours, everyone raves about during autumn.

At this time of the year, the leaves slowly start to turn from vibrant green to muddy browns and brights yellows. Warm Oranges and deep reds contrast against the water’s edge. It’s a striking difference against the Bay of Green Bay. Once the colors start transforming, grab the camera and head out on a must-see, scenic leaf-peeping tour.

Check out this great leaf color report and fall foliage map. It can help for deciding when the leaves are in peak leaf peeping season. Peak color season for Door County is in the first two weeks of October.
