If you’re looking to enjoy the beauty of fall foliage, you’re in the right place.
According to a list compiled by Travel + Leisure of the country’s best towns for enjoying fall foliage, the Northeast had 7 of the list’s 19 spots. (And, let’s face it: It probably would have been more if T+L wasn’t trying to be polite and inclusive to other regions.)
Northeast towns occupied four of the top six spots on the list, including the top spot, which went to Lake Placid, New York.
“Red and silver maples, birch, aspen, oaks, and beech trees stretch out along the Olympic Trail scenic byway (which runs through Lake Placid), providing a striking show of color for its 170 miles,” writes author Deb Hopewell.
Stowe, Vermont (Number 4) and Ludlow, Vermont (Number 5) round out the Northeast representatives in the Top 5.
