10 Places to Embrace the Art of Nature this Autumn

Autumn leaves

Getting outside has numerous benefits for our physical and emotional health.

It’s been proven time and time again that fresh air boosts your immune system, relieves stress, enhances creativity and even mitigates pain. Nature provides natural aromatherapy, restores focus and improves vision. If you still need another reason to get outside this time of year, let the changing colors of the leaves fill that void for you.

As the air turns colder and many trade tank-tops and flip flops for flannels and boots, traveling to see nature’s amazing artistry on the hillsides provides an unmistakable pastime for many. Late September through October provides some of the best color-watching across the United States.

Here Are 10 Places to Embrace the Art of Nature this Autumn:

The Northeastern region of the United States is known for its autumnal beauty and centers much of its tourism industry on the changing leaves, apple picking, and fall festivals.

  1. Bar Harbor, Maine

Visit Acadia National Park before the cold sets in. Kayak the beautiful rivers and go whale-watching on the coast while enjoying the amazing colors of one of the most northern states in the US.

  1. The Catskill Mountains, New York

The German culture, fall festivals, and stunning landscapes might captivate you enough to bring you back each October.

  1. Stowe, Vermont

This town is nicknamed Fall’s Color Capital and it’s no wonder; with its mountain views and numerous outdoor activities organized this time of year.

  1. North Conway, New Hampshire

Hop on an historic train and ride through the New Hampshire countryside in style. Leaves are at their peak in mid-October; so don’t wait!

Have you found yourself in another region of the United States? Don’t fret! There are hundreds of other amazing locations that focus on fall colors.

  1. Upper Peninsula, Michigan

With acres of forest on the edge of two of The Great Lakes, it should come as no surprise that the “U.P.” offers some of the most amazing colors in the country.

  1. Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

Home to over 50 waterfalls, October and November are among the best times to visit this Northwest Pacific location.

  1. Madison, Wisconsin

With the hills to the north, bluffs to the west, and numerous hiking and biking trails to take advantage of, you’ll want to make a weekend trip to this Wisconsin capital city.

  1. The Great Smoky Mountains

This chain of mountains is breathtaking year-round; but in the Fall, you’ll find yourself completely awestruck. Eight hundred miles of roads and dozens of different types of trees bring you days of exploring options.

  1. Aspen, Colorado

For a city named after trees, it’s no wonder that the views are so stunning this time of year.

  1. Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, New Mexico

Looking for something a little farther south? Try this eighty-three-mile loop in New Mexico. Winding around New Mexico’s highest point, you’ll experience amazing southwestern color.

Whether color-watching means walking out your back door or planning a trip to the colder regions of the country, add this to your bucket list of outdoor activities each year. It’s nature’s chance to show off for a brief moment before winter’s dormant months.
