Fall is the perfect time to rediscover the sheer joy of driving. It’s also the only time of year to enjoy the beautiful North Carolina colors on display.
Exploring the autumnal landscape usually involves road-tripping, however. So, you’ll need the right car for the job. Luckily, Mitsubishi has you covered. From the fun and efficient 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 to the luxuriously versatile Outlander SUV, there’s definitely a Mitsubishi model to suit each driver.
Due to unseasonably high temperatures at the beginning of the season, experts have pushed back peak fall color dates an average of five days throughout North Carolina. This means you still have plenty of time to plan the perfect fall color road trip and to catch the foliage at its most vibrant.
Along the Blue Ridge Parkway, peak viewing time should be during Oct. 12-25. This includes most of the Great Smoking Mountains National Park, as well as the Boone and Blowing Rock areas.
At slightly lower elevations, such as in the Pisgah National Forest, peak viewing time will be later in the month, around Oct. 24-31.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, less-elevated areas like Gatlinburg and Chimney Rock will boast later peak times. The foliage should be at its most vibrant from Oct. 31 through Nov.13.
