Sixteen Best US Cities for Fall Vacation
16 Best US Cities to Visit in Fall insider
Autumn is a great time to travel if you like golden foliage and small crowds.
The US has great fall travel destinations including Tarrytown, NY, and Road County, Wisconsin.
If you're interested in fall activities, head to Orlando, Florida, or Salem, Massachusetts.
Tarrytown, NY is the perfect destination for a Halloween adventure.
Just an hour's drive from New York City, Tarrytown is a great city break.
It is beautiful all year round, but especially in autumn, when the foliage begins to change color. Enjoy fun activities, tranquil foliage hikes and beautiful views of the Hudson Valley.
Tarrytown is also close to Sleepy Hollow, home of Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, making it the perfect town to visit in the lead-up to Halloween.
There are haunted houses, graveyard tours, and the famous Great Jack-o-lantern Blaze event with hundreds of carved pumpkins.
In the fall, San Francisco has almost perfect weather.
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 temperature is higher than in a rainy winter, and it is sunnier outside, without the morning fog that usually occurs in summer.
The Kentucky Triangle is full of fall events.
In the fall, you might not consider heading south, but the Kentucky Triangle is made up of three popular cities - Bowling Green, Owensboro, and Paducah - which host various fall events.
At Bowling Green, you can take advantage of the wonderful weather to enjoy the fall festivals and explore Mammoth Cave National Park.
Owensboro has plenty of bourbon and barbecues, as well as a great farmers' market.
Finally, Paducah is a UNESCO creative city full of history and art, and there is also a fun pumpkin market worth visiting.
Vermont's verdant mountains look like an autumn postcard.
If you really want to get serious about fall foliage, one of the best parts of the US to visit is New England.
In the Vermont Green Mountains, you can take 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.
It's also worth taking a ride to see the state's highest peak, Mount Mansfield.
Travel to Salt Lake City for Oktoberfest.
In Salt Lake City, Utah, autumn means two things: gorgeous foliage and less crowded.
Autumn is not the most popular time of the year for tourism in Salt Lake City, which means prices may be lower and popular spots are likely to have fewer people, but still beautiful.
In September, you can attend the Utah State Fair with a rodeo.
If you also want to ski, there are usually opportunities for that at the end of October.
Visit Finger Lakes for breathtaking natural views.
Another great spot in New York in the fall is the Finger Lakes region, known for its foliage. There are so many things to do here, including hot air balloon rides, hiking, vineyards for wine tastings, relaxing at spas, and trying hick yoga (hiking yoga).
Every fall from 2015 to 2019, Ithaca was transformed into Diagon Alley for the Harry Potter festival, but since 2020 it has taken a break from work due to the coronavirus pandemic.
For something spooky on Halloween, visit New York's Haunted Historical Trail or go for a haunted walk.
The area also has plenty of places for autumn snacks, including the annual apple tasting tour, the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail, or the Sweet Treats Trail.
Enjoy nature in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains.
In early October, Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains turn into a wonderland of fall foliage.
You can use the fine weather as an excuse to hike, such as the approximately 18 km trail around Cades Cove, which includes waterfalls and stunning views.
If hiking is not for you, the Ober-Gatlinburg cable car allows you to see foliage from above or see some scenic views as you drive along the Gatlinburg bypass.
Visit Salem, Massachusetts if you love the spooky.
Salem, Massachusetts, comes alive in the fall. There may be a bit more people here than some of the other destinations on the list.

Taos, New Mexico is beautiful in the fall.

Travel to Door County, Wisconsin for beautifully changing foliage.
Door County is considered one of the best fall foliage spots in the Midwest.
You can take Highway 57 or 42 to see it all, with lighthouses and European-style buildings along the way.
The peninsula also has pretty towns and orchards where you can stop off to learn about historical events, local art and delicious food.
It is best to arrive in early October, when all the leaves have changed, but before it gets too cold.
Have fun with the whole family in Orlando, Florida.
If the cool fall weather is not for you, but you still want to experience all of the autumn pleasures, you might consider a trip 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, North Carolina.

Stroll through the beautiful historic city of Boston, Massachusetts.
There are many outdoor sightseeing opportunities in Boston.
If you travel more around the city, it is difficult to choose a better city than Boston during the fall months. Like the rest of New England, the city has 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 - neither too hot nor too cold - and there is a lot to see and do.
Go shopping, enjoy a delicious meal, or go on a historic city tour.
