(ARA) – Every fall, many families pack up the car to travel to see fall foliage. Cooler temperatures and vivid colors make fall the perfect time to get outside and enjoy nature. Most regions have an area known for a vivid display of fall foliage, so families don’t have to travel too far to enjoy autumn colors.
* Research specific regions: Many private and public parks offer trails for visitors. Be sure to ask for trail maps of the area to get the lay of the land and determine the appropriate trails for your family’s experience level.
* Prepare for the weather: Be sure to stay tuned to local news weather forecasts, Internet sites or contact the local tourism bureau to help predict the best time to plan your trip.
* Be part of the action: Riding down trails on an all terrain vehicle can give your family a whole new perspective on fall colors. The new two-passenger machines, like the Polaris Sportsman Touring and Polaris X2, give you the opportunity to share the views with the family. Be sure to pack all appropriate safety gear including helmets, goggles, gloves, long-sleeved shirts, pants and boots.
