Fall is especially beautiful in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Leaves begin to turn red and yellow in the middle of October. The timing and intensity of colour depend on temperature and rainfall. The peak of fall colours can be seen till the end of October, and then the trees start losing leaves. If you happen to be in Washington during this time, visit one of it's beautiful parks like Tidal Basin or the National Arboretum. Or if you have some time, visit some of the most popular fall foliage sites in the region—Shenandoah National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, or George Washington & Jefferson National Forests.

I'm definitely suffering from fall foliage FOMO this year. This was last year's Shenandoah valley.
