    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.

    Even though Acadia gets most of the buzz, this park in Camden — close to Rockport — is amazing as well. It has 30 miles of nature trails, and, like Acadia, it's a very mountain-meets-ocean vibe.

    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.
