The 7 Most Beautiful Fall Destinations In New York

Fall weather is kicking in, and it won’t be long before the leaves begin to change with it. When it comes to enjoying that array of natural color, there’s no better place to be than New York. We took a look at some of our favorite parks, byways and preserves in the state. These areas take on a whole new level of beauty this time of year.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There are plenty of charming small towns to visit along the way. If you’re taking the Western New York Southtowns Scenic Byway, stop in Ellicottville and tour its quaint downtown. If you’re taking the Mohawk Towpath Scenic Byway, head to Albany or Schenectady to grab a bite to eat. Or just forge your own path!
