GVV is sharing its top picks for the best places to experience the fall colors this year.
1. Columbia River Gorge, Oregon
Enjoy breathtaking views of maple trees, pines, cottonwoods, waterfalls and so much more including the 80-mile Columbia River Gorge. Known as one of the most beautiful places in all of Oregon, this is one stop fall vacationers are not going to want to miss.
2. Great Smoky Mountains, North Carolina and Tennessee
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a truly spectacular park that is located in both North Carolina and Tennessee. Trees here range from hickories to oaks and maples for a truly breathtaking display of the various colors in nature. With 800 miles of scenic trails and roads, there is no shortage of views to be seen shares Global Vacation Ventures.
3. Glacier National Park, Montana
One of the most remote national parks in the United States, Glacier National Park becomes nearly vacant at the end of September. This affords true nature enthusiasts the chance to experience nature in its purest form. During the autumn months, it is not uncommon to spot elk, bighorn sheep, bears and more that are all preparing for the winter ahead.
4. Aspen, Colorado
The Rocky Mountains are well-known for skiing, snowboarding, hot springs and more, but few times are more ideal to visit the mountains than in the fall. In the autumn season, the aspen trees, which the city gets its name from, turn brilliant shades of gold, orange and crimson. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime view that should be on every traveler’s bucket list.
5. Upper Peninsula, Michigan
With over 20 state parks to choose from, Global Vacation Ventures knows that travelers will have plenty of opportunities to experience fall colors in Michigan. One of the best places to do so is at the Upper Peninsula, which is located in the middle of three Great Lakes.
