It is that time of year again. With the first official day of fall right around the corner, the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to announce that its ever popular Leaf Cam is officially up and running! After much anticipation, the Leaf Cam has been carefully placed and secured high above one of the area’s magnificent overlooks to provide a stunning view for visitors.

Capturing the ever-changing show of the leaves as they don their bright autumn colors, visitors can tune in to the Leaf Cam for a daily look at Brown County’s famous fall foliage. This year, the Leaf Cam is back and better than ever, calling a new spot in the county home. While it may be a different view than return leaf peepers have seen in the past, this year’s shot is guaranteed to please, as multiple layers of tree lines can be seen in the distance.

Each year as the Brown County Visitors Center prepares for and moves into its busy fall season, countless questions are asked about the area’s beautiful foliage, with the most anticipated and frequently asked question being: “When is the peak time for the leaves to change?”

If only we knew! Pinpointing an exact date or even week that the leaves will reach their full color potential is easier said than done. Weather plays a major role in the changes each year, so as the weather is never the same, the time of year the leaves change always varies. Typically, the second and third weeks of October are peak times. However, a wonderful array of color as early as late September stretching into the beginning of November can still be seen.

Tune in and watch the show for yourself on the Leaf Cam. Experience Brown County’s famous foliage and see if you can predict the peak of the leaves this fall. The Leaf Cam can be found online, as well as on the Discover Brown County app.

Also, this year the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau has put together an Insider’s Guide to Fall to help make visitors’ autumn getaways to Brown County as enjoyable as possible. The guide, which is full of fall travel tips, is designed to help visitors better navigate their way around the Village of Nashville and the county in general. In addition to hitting on hot visitor questions such as parking, restrooms, and dining, the Insider’s Guide also provides helpful advice to bypass some of the busy fall traffic and crowds, as well as suggests a few off-the-beaten-path activities for guests to try. The Insider’s Guide to Fall can be found on Brown County’s blog at
