With a drop in temperature, colors of nature and the return of children to school, autumn is the best time to book a trip to national parks. Not only do you get less crowds and even better landscape views, but your trip gets a little more spontaneous thanks to unpredictable weather – whether it's on very cool nights or a strange blizzard.
“Autumn is my favorite time of the year to visit national parks for a variety of reasons, depending on location,” said Heather Giselman, REI adventure travel program manager for the North America. “There are no more crowds in the West and Midwest, but silence reigns in the air. You no longer have to struggle to find a place in your favorite place, and the parks almost sighed. Here and there there are spots of flowers that contrast beautifully with the bright blue sky, shades of evergreen trees and uneven peaks. And in the east, the parks just show off. This is the fireworks of nature and the end of a long, hot summer. ”
To help you choose a place where you can see the best scenes of nature, we asked Gyselman and several other experts to find places to visit this season. Book your trip, plan your choice of activities and enjoy the colorful display.
