Great tours, like great stories, must have a good beginning. For the latest Top 10 List, Livability.com editors mapped out the 10 best cities to begin a scenic fall drive. These cities are located near natural wonderlands, lush forests and scenic mountainsides that burst with color when temperatures cool.
To make the list, cities not only had to be within proximity to scenic routes but also offer high quality-of-life amenities. Editors searched for places where visitors can do more than just take in the views.
“There are plenty of great places to drive and see fall color, but we wanted to find cities that are themselves a destination,” says John Hood, Livability.com spokesman. “These are cities with ample outdoor recreation and plenty of family-friendly activities.”
