Go ahead! Start planning those fall road trips before summer ends.

Yes, we just said the words "fall foliage" and yes, we know it's still summertime. If you're like me, you can't wait for fall because it's your favorite season. You long for crisp morning walks with your dog and extra crunchy leaves to step on along the way. One of the most breathtaking views during this fall season is certainly those leaves changing colors before dropping to the ground.

So where can you find the best fall foliage?

Country Living recently compiled a list of the best small towns across the country to enjoy this autumn phenomenon. For the Ark-La-Tex, they chose Jasper, Arkansas. This quaint little town is situated in the Ozark Mountains and is surrounded by the great outdoors. Drive through or plan a weekend stay. As a girl who grew up in a tiny town, I always recommend that you stop in and stay awhile.

There's just something about a small town in the fall.
