2. Boston, Massachusetts

An evening view of Christopher Columbus Park with Customs House Clock in the background showcases just why travelers go to visit. Visiting Boston this fall can stroll along the Charles River, enjoy a ride on the Swan Boats, or simply relax in the Public Garden for a glimpse of autumnal color. Lush foliage, sprawling grass, and sounds of nature in these serene spots allow travelers to forget they are in the midst of a bustling city. Peak foliage-viewing is from late September through the middle of October.
