The Importance Maple Trees in the United States of America

Spending Autumn in the U.S.A.

Autumn in the U.S.A. brings to mind cooler weather, forests of reds, oranges, and yellows, and the groans of children having to go back to school. Football, apple picking, and hiking tend to be popular fall activities. Whether you’re looking to take pictures of fall foliage or taking a vacation before school starts, then here are some places you can visit.

Places to Visit

Let’s dive into where you can go to spend autumn in the U.S.A. that’s not your usual vista.

Route 100, Vermont

Having Vermont suggested as a place to visit in the autumn shouldn’t surprise anyone. Vermont is known for its fantastic view of changing colors and its sugar maples. A drive along Route 100 will take you through the middle of the state. You’ll drive through the dazzling sight of forests laid out in red, orange, yellow, and gold. You’ll find quaint New England villages filled with covered bridges, farm stands, and country stores. There are great places to stop for exploration, such as:

  • President Calvin Coolidge’s childhood home in Plymouth Notch
  • Ben & Jerry’s ice cream factory in Waterbury
  • Gondola rides of Mount Mansfield
  • Vermont Country Store, Weston
  • Green Mountain Sugar House, Ludlow
  • Moss Glen Falls, Granville
  • Couture’s Maple Shop and B & B, Westfield

Acadia National Park, Maine

Acadia is on Maine’s coast, on Mount Desert Island. It’s a special place to visit from mid-September through early October. There’s plenty of hiking space here to take in the sights, whether you prefer the crystal-clear lakes or taking in the view from on a height, which you can do on Cadillac Mountain. There’s a lighthouse from the late 1800s to explore as well as beaches.

There are more places than this to visit, but these are two great places to start exploring the colors of autumn in the U.S.A.
