But, that's not a reason to get upset, because the post-summer months in Jersey are some of the best of the year.

Jersey is full of great spots to go pumpkin picking, looking at all of the beautiful leaves that change colors from summer to fall, and there are a ton of local festivals you can enjoy!

In fact, one Arboretum in Jersey is being called one of the best hidden gems to check out this fall for all your fall foliage needs.

What NJ Arboretum Is The Best In The State For A Fall Day Trip?

This place is a nice combo of historic and beautiful.

Some of the buildings on the grounds date back to the late 1700s and are immaculately kept.

And what's really cool is that this place is hidden in a town of less than one thousand people, so it really may be one of Jersey's best-kept secrets.

Oh, and by the way, according to only in your state, they've got over 3,500 species of flowers, plants, and trees scattered throughout the grounds you can explore.

Only In Your State says that the Willowwood Arboretum in Chester Township is one of the best places in the state to check out some beautiful foliage this fall.

The Willowwood Arboretum also hosts events, concerts, and a ton of other great stuff.
