Fall is on its way with all its usual bright colors and beautiful views. From California’s majestic redwoods to the quiet shores of North Carolina, here are a few serene destinations perfect for the cooler weather.
White Mill Park, located in Burrillville, RI, used to be an actual mill back in 1834. Now, the mill is gone, but the colors are not — THEY ARE FIRE. Stay in Providence and drive to the park from there; it's about 45 minutes away.
Acadia National Park has it all: mountains, ocean, freshness, and Cadillac Mountain, the highest mountain on the North Atlantic seaboard. Climb to the top of the mountain for the most epic view, or stop at one of the many scenic overlooks along the way.
Willamette Valley is 150 miles long, and actually contains most of Oregon's population. It also happens to be loaded with more than 200 wine vineyards — and in the fall, the grape vines literally pop with bright colors.
