What Is #TravelTuesday?
TravelTuesday is great for everyone.

You can also easily share your favorite URLs, pictures, blog posts and more! Tuesday’s are all about travel!

From time to time, we’ll share with you ideas, links and resources related to car travel [in case you haven't guessed...our favorite kind of travel].
Today’s #TravelTuesday post is about Fall Foliage. It’s officially fall in North America and the best time of year to admire the beauty of nature and the magnificent display of leaf colors. We came across this great post http://www.nileguide.com/blog/2010/09/28/fall-foliage-frolicking-using-the-web-to-find-autumns-peak/ which talks about using the Internet to better plan fall foliage road trips.
Here are some other great tools to check out:
