Fun stuff: follow the foliage

The Federal News Network speaks with Recreation News Publisher Karl Teel about interesting things to do in and near the nation’s capital. This week:

  • head north in latitude and up in altitude to the mountains of Pennsylvania, where the fall leaves are already far more colorful than in D.C. Celebrate autumn’s colors and tastes at the Smicksburg Fall Festival (today and tomorrow, just north of Jimmy Stewart’s hometown of Indiana).

    According to the town website, Smicksburg was founded by a Lutheran minister named Schmick and is still pronounced “Schmicksburg” by some of its residents today.
