Travelling around the Thanksgiving holiday is very popular. So where is everyone headed? Many flock to the warm beaches in Florida, or even somewhere further like the Bahamas. But for the people that don’t mind cooler weather, there are many beautiful places in the mountains to see fall foliage. 


Acadia National Park in Maine is arguably one of the most popular destinations. Acadia is located in Bar Harbor, Maine along the coast of the Atlantic ocean. With the rocky coast line, tall mountains, and thousands of trees, the view is very colorful in the fall. 


The Great Smoky Mountains are also a great destination to experience fall. There are over 100 different species of trees here such as sugar maple, scarlet oak, sweetgum, red maple, and hickories. The diversity of tree types allows for an array of oranges, reds, and yellows. 


Fall leaves can also be seen all throughout the state of New York, especially around the Finger Lakes. The Finger Lakes consist of five lakes covering over 9,000 square miles. This is a popular destination because of the scenic drives, hiking trails, farms, and vineyards. 


Due to the various climates and conditions of the United States, there are tons of great options to see the colors of fall.
