Autumn is finally here indicating that the changing of the leaves is, too. From gold and red to bright orange and lime green, each year our state’s trees are painted in a rainbow of vibrant hues. Since it may be difficult to see these outstanding colors from the office or your home, it’s important to take a getaway trip and be exposed to the beauty in its entirety. Need a place to take engagement, wedding, or “just because” photos? Even better! Our friends at Spare Wheels Transportation will be sure to get you and your entire party wherever you need to be. Below you’ll find five of the best places in Illinois to see fall foliage.

If it’s honeymoon season for you or you prefer to investigate if the leaves are brighter on the other side of the ocean, we’ve also created a list of five extraordinary best places to see fall foliage around the world (seen below).
