When a world-famous town is named after a tree, you know it’s an extraordinary place. The leaves in Aspen, Colorado turn a rich yellow hue in the fall and literally shimmer in the breeze when the sun hits them. The gold tones of aspens in autumn make for a picture-perfect contrast with the evergreens and mountain peaks surrounding the atmosphere. Travel alone, or bring your friends for the ultimate fall adventure.

Michigan’s state forest system is the largest in the eastern United States, being one of the best places to visit this autumn. You can take your pick from over twenty forested state parks, full of every tree imaginable: ash, aspen, beech, birch, maple, oak, sycamore, and tamarack. The densely forested peninsula is right between three Great Lakes, making the ultimate view. You can see the tranquil waters, ranging in color and reflecting back the brilliant fall colors from the trees. The northernmost part of the Upper Peninsula is also known for its historic lighthouses, being the perfect place to stay and view everything.

Located right here in southeastern New York, is home to six major river systems, thirty-five mountain peaks, and the famous Woodstock festival. The Catskills is a year-round destination, but is the most vibrant in the fall when you see electrifying reds, yellows, and oranges everywhere you look. Everyone savors the fall harvest between the thickly wooded hillsides. Additionally, many of the historic villages in the region host festivals and fairs, including farmers’ markets and pick-your-own orchards. You can stay at the Inn at Lake Joseph for a more retreat experience, or a charming B&B if you’re on a budget.
