Peak fall foliage is on its way and leaf peepers will be coming from all around to witness the majestic glory that is autumn in New England.

Keep an eye on all of that gorgeous New England fall foliage with this live map from Yankee Foliage:

New Hampshire locals see this amazing display of color year after year, but perhaps now is the time to really make an effort to appreciate the beauty that is fall foliage. Your favorite radio station is here to help.

The leaves are already turning their colors, but peak fall foliage in New Hampshire is predicted to be from Sept. 28 through Oct. 9 inland and Oct. 5 through 21 on the coast.

All of the Facebook photos of fall foliage throughout the state may be a decent substitute for the real thing, but why not take a trip and see it all firsthand? Here are some suggested routes from the U.S. Department of Transportation:
