Fall Foliage in South Florida?

There is no better display of fall foliage than in the northeastern USA (New England) in October each year. Vermont and New Hampshire have lots of great spots to view the changing leaves.

I have visited New England 4 times and if I had to pick one spot to re-visit I would choose the Kancamagus Highway in northern New Hampshire. The hillside views, the reflections of the colors in the river, the waterfalls and the covered bridges are all worth the drive into the White Mountains.

Here in south Florida we do not have enough cold days to produce the vibrant colors of New England. However there are a number of maple trees here that undergo color change at this time of year. I have visited a few local parks in search of maple trees and here are the more colorful ones.

The first two photos were taken at Fern Nature Center in Coconut Creek, the third was taken at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach and the last was shot at Tree Tops Park in Davie.
