There are several river cruises in the United States and Canada that have a fall foliage theme. These cruises typically take place during the months of September, October, and November, which is when the leaves on the trees in these regions turn brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow. These cruises pay homage to the beauty of autumn while traversing the upper Mississippi, Ohio, Cumberland, Tennessee and Hudson Rivers. On board, take in a lecture from guest naturalists or cozy up with pumpkin pie and spiced cider as you enjoy views of stunning fall landscapes passing by. But you aren't limited to admiring these rich hues from afar. Stops in port cities such as St. Louis and St. Paul give you the opportunity to play in the leaves between interesting shore excursions.
