After years of watching other states attempt to position themselves as autumn destinations, Vermont has thrown down the gauntlet and declared itself the home of the World's Best Foliage.

In previous years, states as far away as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Arizona have claimed their fall season was as pretty as Vermont's. "Clearly, we're the bar," said Megan Smith, Commissioner for the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing. "Our fall advertising campaign will articulate the myriad reasons we have the World's Best Foliage. Our hope is that people will be inspired to come see it for themselves."

Smith added that Vermont's fall campaign isn't just about bragging rights. Visitors spend $460 million during the foliage season, which represents about a quarter of overall visitor spending each year. Nearly 3.5 million people travel to Vermont in the fall to experience its unique working landscape of bucolic villages, pastoral meadows, and forested hillsides.
