The autumn season is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, which means that a bouquet of colors is going to start turning nature into a fiery landscape that can only be seen to be believed. The United States, with its numerous deciduous forests and protected landscapes, is one of the best countries to see fall and its colors.

If you’re looking for suggestions for parks to see fall colors in, look no further!

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Peak: mid-to-late October

This magical park, the country’s most popular, is one of the best places on earth to see trees’ colors change in autumn. Go in mid or late October to see the Tennessee and North Carolina mountains come alive.

Rocky Mountains National Park

Peak: mid-to-late September

The high elevations in this Colorado park mean that colors begin to change earlier than in most places in the United States. The bright yellow colors of the Aspen leaves turning colors for the fall is an unforgettable sight to see.

Acadia National Park

Peak: late September to early October

This underrated Maine park is fantastic because it combines fall colors with the beauty of the savage North Atlantic Ocean. Get here at the end of September or the beginning of October to see the colors in full bloom.
