Fall is the busiest tourist season of the year in Vermont, and it’s no wonder why. The temperatures moderate and the famous fall foliage is brilliant as cooler temperatures help transform the green leaves into shades of yellow, orange, and red. The leaves are such a fall attraction they get their own billing: Leaf Peeping Season. At Shelburne Museum apples ripen on the dozens of trees throughout campus and the maple tree leaves pop bright red. Walking the 45-acre campus is a pleasant experience in and of itself, but there’s also lots to do in the fall.
Every Saturday in September, students are admitted free of charge!
