Now that we’re in the home stretch of summer, on the backside of Labor Day, it’s time to look forward to one of the most popular natural attractions in our area – watching the leaves change colors. Because of COVID-19, we have had to cancel or otherwise modify our spring and summer plans. However, if you have been looking forward to a 2020 Fall foliage trim near Lexington, MA, there isn’t much that can thwart it. Our area is fortunate in that we are well within driving distance of a lot of state parks and nature reserves that are perfect for catching this natural beauty in all of its splendor. The Lexington Toyota team came up with a list of places they have enjoyed leaf-peeping in the past. Hopefully, you will be able to find the time to try it with your friends and family.

Is it safe to look at fall leaves during COVID-19? 

Just because you’re going out into nature, doesn’t mean you can ignore COVID-19 safety protocols and common sense. Being outside and socially distanced from people who don’t live with you is generally considered a low-risk activity. However, you will still want to make sure you pack masks for everyone traveling with you and bring your own water. Some facilities may be operating with fewer amenities than normal.
