Bloomington named #1 Midwest city to view fall foliage

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (IUSTV News) – Bloomington Indiana was voted the number one Midwest city to view fall foliage by Rocket Homes. Just a short drive east is Brown County State Park, another great place to spend fall.  

The article ranked Bloomington so high because visitors have so many ways to immerse themselves in fall, the percentage of metro area covered in trees with leaves that change color, freezing temperatures relating to plants, and the area’s elevation. 

Some fall activities in Bloomington include Fowler Pumpkin Patch, Hickory Ridge Fire Tower, Hoosier National Forest, Starlite Drive-In Theater, Rose Hill Cemetery, Barn of Terror, and of course trick-or-treating on Halloween   

For southern Indiana, peak fall foliage started on October 20th and goes through the end of the month, so be sure to head on out there and enjoy your Halloween.
