Sixteen Best US Cities for Fall Vacation
If you're planning a vacation in the next three months, check out these 16 beautiful US cities, reports Insider.
Autumn is a great time to travel if you like golden foliage and sparse crowds.
The United States has some great fall travel destinations, including Tarrytown, New York, and Road County, Wisconsin.
For fall events, head to Orlando, Florida or Salem, Massachusetts.
By the way, Tarrytown is the perfect place for Halloween adventures.
Just an hour from New York City, Tarrytown is a great city getaway.
It is beautiful here all year round, but is especially charming in the fall when the foliage begins to change color. You'll enjoy fun activities, peaceful hikes through the foliage, and beautiful views of the Hudson Valley.
Tarrytown is located near Sleepy Hollow, the setting of Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, making it the perfect town to visit around Halloween.
There are haunted houses, graveyard tours, and the famous Great Jack-o-lantern Blaze event with hundreds of carved pumpkins.
Almost perfect weather in San Francisco in the fall
San Francisco is always beautiful and has a lot to see and do all year round, but in terms of weather, autumn is the best time to visit.
The temperatures are higher than in the rainy winter and it is much sunnier outside without the morning fog that usually occurs in the summer.
The Kentucky Triangle Is Full of Fall Events
You might not think about heading south in the fall, but the Kentucky Triangle is made up of three popular cities—Bowling Green, Owensboro, and Paducah—that host a variety of fall events.
Bowling Green has the opportunity to take advantage of the wonderful weather to enjoy the fall festivals and explore the Mammoth Cave National Park.
Owensboro has plenty of bourbon and barbecue, as well as a great farmers market.
Paducah, on the other hand, is a UNESCO Creative City that is full of history and the arts. It has a fun pumpkin market that is worth a visit.
The green mountains of Vermont look like a fall postcard
If you really take fall foliage seriously, one of the best places to visit in the US is New England.
In Vermont's Green Mountains, you can make a trip to see orange and red maples and enjoy warm days with cool nights.
The nearby towns of Stowe and Jeffersonville have a pretty village, a Cold Hollow cider mill, a corn maze, and even a Maple Outlet where you can learn how to make maple syrup.
In addition, it is worth a ride to see the highest peak of the state at Mount Mansfield.
Head to Salt Lake City for Oktoberfest
In Salt Lake City, Utah, fall is characterized by two things: gorgeous foliage and fewer people.
Autumn is not the most popular time of year for tourism in Salt Lake City, but prices here can be significantly lower, and you will probably meet fewer people in popular locations. However, the city is equally beautiful at any time.
In September, you can visit the Utah State Fair with a rodeo.
If you want to go skiing, this opportunity will appear at the end of October.
Explore the Finger Lakes for breathtaking natural views
Another great place to be in New York City during fall is the Finger Lakes region, known for its foliage. There is a great variety of things to do here! Don't miss the opportunity to ride a hot air balloon, and also go hiking, visit vineyards for wine tasting, relax in SPA salons, and practice hick yoga (hiking yoga).
Every fall from 2015 to 2019, the city of Ithaca turned into Diagon Alley for a Harry Potter-themed festival, but it took a break in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
If you're looking to do something spooky for Halloween, visit New York City's Historic Haunted Trail or take a stroll along one of its kind.
The area has a variety of places for fall snacks, including the annual Apple Tasting Tour, the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail, or the Sweet Treats Trail.
Enjoy Nature in the Smoky Mountains, Tennessee
In early October, the Great Smoky Mountains turns into a fall foliage wonderland.
You can use the fine weather as an excuse to hike, such as the approximately 18 km trail around Cades Bay, which includes waterfalls and stunning views.
If hiking isn't your thing, the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway allows you to see the foliage from above or take in some scenic views while driving along the Gatlinburg Bypass.
Visit Salem, Massachusetts if you love all things creepy
The town of Salem, Massachusetts, also comes alive in the fall. It may be a little more crowded than other locations on the list.
The town is full of creepy stories, being home to the historic Salem Witch Trials, which took place back in the 1600s.
There are ghost tours, cemetery tours, and mystical attractions, all right on the water, so you're sure to enjoy some great views.
Visit Taos, New Mexico, admire the beautiful flowers and enjoy the mountain air
Taos is beautiful in the fall! You can immerse yourself in autumn nature by taking a scenic driving tour of the Enchanted Circle to explore the forests and mountains.
Along the way, it's worth stopping off at Red River for a few fall festivals, such as the annual Oktoberfest, where you can sample authentic German food and beer along with new Mexican wines in a beautiful outdoor setting.
Head to Door County, Wisconsin for beautifully changing foliage
Door County in the Midwest is considered one of the best places for fall foliage species.
You can take Highway 57 or 42 to see it all along the way, complete with lighthouses and European-style buildings.
The peninsula has pretty towns and orchards where you can stop to experience historical events, local art and delicious food.
The best time to visit is early October, when all the leaves are changing in color, but before it gets too cold.
Have fun with the whole family in Orlando, Florida
If cool autumn weather isn't for you, but you still want to experience all the fun of autumn, then feel free to head to Orlando.
Autumn brings cooler temperatures than the humid summer heat, and Disney World and Universal Studios offer fun for the whole family.
Universal Studios throws Halloween Horror Nights full of spooky haunted houses that will cheer you up for Halloween, while Disney offers a family Halloween party in the Magic Kingdom.
Both theme parks have changed the rules for their fall events amid the coronavirus pandemic, but they still offer an eerie vibe.
Go Hiking in Asheville, North Carolina
Another southern destination worth visiting is Asheville.
The city is a great place to fall because the season here is very long and offers a varied color palette of foliage.
In addition, you can ride a cable car, go hiking, fly in a hot air balloon, or stay in a cozy hut in the forest to simply relax and enjoy the magnificent views.
Stroll through the beautiful historic city of Boston, Massachusetts
There are many outdoor sightseeing opportunities in Boston.
If you prefer to wander around the city, it's hard to choose a better metropolis than Boston during the fall months. Like the rest of New England, it features beautiful fall foliage.
Boston is already picturesque and charming, but with the colors of autumn it is even more beautiful than usual. The weather is perfect - not too hot and not too cold, plus there is plenty to see and do.
Go shopping, enjoy a delicious meal, or go on a historic city tour.
Head to Port Townsend, Washington for some outdoor activities
