5. Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada
The next place on our list of the ten best places to visit in autumn will take you to Quebec. On the Gaspé Peninsula, the trees have the blue waters of the St. Lawrence Gulf as a backdrop. You can occupy yourselves by hiking through the mountains of Parc National de la Gaspésie, or leaf-peep while whale-watching in Forillon National Park, where seven types of whales visit through October. You know we are honestly drooling at the prospect of this particular Autumn holiday destination just by writing about it.
4. Holmes County, Ohio
Before we begin to write about Ohio, here is something we read about the country which we think makes the place sound like pure poetry. “Ohio’s Amish Country, maple, oak, and the iconic state tree, the buckeye, hang over narrow roads that meander through wavy fields of corn. Drive under the boughs of bright reds and yellows, sharing the road with horse-drawn carriages of the Old Order Amish and stopping at roadside farm stands along the way.” Seeing as there is no need to say anything about this place after what we all just read, we might as well move on to the next place on our list of the ten best places to visit in autumn.
3. South Dakota
Next up on our list of the ten best places to visit in autumn is South Dakota. Even the name sounds Autumn-ish. Now we will cut to the chase and recommend the Iron Mountain Road, is a 17-mile road that winds its way through the Black Hills between Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park, both of which are definitely worth visiting in their own rite. You have our permission to do just that and nothing else.
Queensland is a great destination for autumn sunshine holidays, particularly its magnificent Gold Coast. Apart from the famous and pristine beaches and excellent surfing opportunities, you can totally look forward to a day dedicated to watching wildlife. You can spend a glorious sunny morning seeing the native inhabitants, traveling to Wacol for Kangaroos and looking for the possums of Boondall Wetlands.
1. South of France
Last but definitely not the least, the South of France is usually thought of as a summer destination and rightfylly so but autumn is a beautiful time to explore Provence, when towns are tranquil, temperatures reach 25°C, and beaches are blissfully peaceful. Imagine friendly locals, small, intimate restaurants and balmy weather, can you really want more out of France? We think not.
