Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of the fall — I think it’s mostly because it marks the end of my favorite time of year and beginning of my least favorite! But even being as anti-autumn as I am, even I can appreciate the near-perfect weather and the breathtaking colors of the changing foliage!
We asked TopTrips readers to share their favorite places for leaf peeping with us and I was surprised to see so many great places that boast a bounty of color. Take a peek at their suggestions and plan your own fall foliage adventure.
“The sleepy little fishing village of Bar Harbor, Maine. It is right beside the Acadia National Forest and is absolutely gorgeous!”
“Kishauwau on the Vermilion in Tonica, IL. It’s a little piece of heaven tucked away in a small town.”
“Gatlinburg, TN, on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains.”
“Gales Creek, OR, has the most beautiful fall with Gales Creek running through the trees and all the colors.”
