Your Fall Travel Guide: Here’s Where to Go Leaf Peeping

Here are some of the most spectacular locations to experience the fall like never before.

There’s a brief, magical window of time during the month of October when the leaves turn radiant shades of red, orange, and yellow. They light up the landscape like a colorful flame before falling to the ground. Fall foliage—or leaf peeping—is a time-honored pastime for those who lean into all things autumn, and right now is the time to plan your trip before it all begins.

Scattered throughout the US you can discover a vast range of breathtaking destinations to take in the changing colors. There are the usual suspects, like Vermont with its iconic maple trees. And favorites like Maine, Missouri, and Michigan. You can even spot these brilliant hues in places like New Mexico and along coastlines where the contrast between the ocean and vibrant leaves feels almost too charming to believe.

Ahead, 10 idyllic places to go leaf peeping this fall, with options ranging from scenic byways and national forests to cozy towns with atmospheric accommodations.
