    12 Picturesque Autumn Destinations Loved By Travel Bloggers

    Autumn is undeniably the best season to travel. Cool weather, cheaper accommodations, and the spectacular display of vibrant leaves as they turn from green to gold, red, and Auburn. To find the best places to enjoy this seasonal wonder, your cue is to go where the temperate deciduous trees grow in abundance. Oaks, maples, beeches, sweetgums, yellow-poplars, dogwoods, and hickories are some of the tree varieties that have their leaves change colors during the Autumn season. Here are some of the picture-perfect Autumn destinations that travel bloggers can't get enough of.

    1. The Adirondacks, New York, USA

    Autumn in the Adirondacks is a time for crisp hikes, mountains on fire with color, and lakes still warm enough for a refreshing dip. Peak foliage usually arrives in late-September or early October depending on the year. While tough to choose, autumn in the Adirondack Park is our favorite season. We spend most of it either hiking out on the trails or paddling the Adirondack waterways. Another bonus, there are no bugs!

    Silver Springs, found just outside of Elko in British Columbia is a awash with autumnal colors. Silver Springs is made up of three lakes and the further you are prepared to walk the more alone you’ll find yourself.

    Bath (Somerset) is a town out of a Jane Austen's book. It is amazingly beautiful and charming in general, but in the Autumn it is breathtaking. The sand coloured Georgian houses blend with the gold and red trees and turn the whole town into an Autumnal postcard.

    4. Central Park, New York, USA

    New York City is probably better known for their concrete jungle than trees and autumn foliage. But Central Park is one of the best places in the city to see the leaves change; The Mall walkway leading to the Bethesda Fountain, Bethesda Fountain near The Lake, and Gapstow Bridge by The Pond, all provide an amazingly colorful view during the fall.

    You’ll find some lovely spots around the UK to witness the fall foliage. The Tree Cathedral in Milton Keynes is up there with the best thanks to lines of beautifully symmetrical trees emerging from the ground coated in fallen autumn leaves.

    The picture is captured at Pavlosk Park, St Petersburg, Russia. It is our first time when we really felt the beauty of Autumn colors. Each picture we captured looks like a painting. Walking amidst those beautiful trees lined up in the Pavlosk Park, with leaves turned into golden color was really captivating.

    The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the most visited park in the United States, is most well known for its enchanting fall foliage. While this photo was taken in the beginning of October, late October and November are the best times to witness the fall changes. Simply take a drive through the winding mountain roads or hike one of the dozens of trails--like Chimney Tops or Laurel Falls--in order to witness the splendor of the fall colors!

    Sayama Lake is one of the two water reservoirs in the City of Tokorozawa in Saitama Prefecture. The reservoir is fenced and restricted; no fishing, boating, swimming and any other water activities is allowed. Visitors are only allowed at the dams and the adjoining rest areas. On clear days, Mount Fuji can be seen from behind the woods.

    One of the best fall destinations in the world is Japan. Beautiful maple trees turn a crimson red and look stunning against a backdrop of temples, shrines and mountainous landscapes. Autumn is truly the most beautiful time of year! Leaves start changing from mid-October and last until mid-December, and Kyoto has some of the most stunning fall foliage in the country.

    Castañar de El Tiemblo is the place to be when you are looking for a quiet retreat and an Instagrammable place in one location. The captivating chestnut forest is evident, made more beautiful by the rays of the sun flashing through its leaves. It can get crowded on the weekends, so be sure to make time in between working week to visit here. Its autumnal colors will make you want to just pack your things, pitch up a tent, and have a glorious picnic while immersing yourself in its beauty.
