13. The Berkshires • Massachusetts
Peak leaf peeping is usually the first week of October but don’t fret if you’ve missed it. The colors go strong throughout the season but, in addition to that, there’s so much to do here! The Mohawk Trail alone (also called a Highway of History) is worth going for as you’ll walk what began as a Native American footpath some 300 years ago. There are also family-run wineries and tons of apples to enjoy while you’re there.
14. Bering Land Bridge Natural Preserve • Alaska
This is true wilderness—it might be the only place you’ll find hot springs, maar lakes, ancient lava flows, caribou and fall foliage all in one place. It’s like nowhere else in the world and promises adventure to visitors.
15. Grand Teton National Park • Wyoming
The Grand Tetons feature deciduous trees in orange and yellow alongside Aspens, willows and deer, of course. Look out for bull moose and elk too and watch out for hunters because they go strong year round.
