I've heard from friends and family several times throughout the years about just how beautiful the Talimena National Scenic Drive is, but I've never had the opportunity to make the drive myself. I plan on changing that sometime soon. It would be a great way to kick off the 2023 holiday season.

Most people think you have to travel to the Northeast U.S. to places like Maine, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, or New Hampshire to see fall colors. Sure, those places are known for their colorful fall leaves, but the Sooner State has its fair share too. Not only that the Talimena Scenic Drive has lots of unique places to stop, shop and eat along the way. So it's more than just a scenic, a lot more.


Time is running out to see the best fall colors. Soon the temperatures will be too cold and the trees will lose all their leaves. You can visit the official Talimena Scenic Drive website for more information or check them out on Facebook. Check out the photo gallery below of other places to see fall colors in Oklahoma.
