Top 10 Beautiful Places to Visit in October in the United States   

Door County, on a peninsula between Lake Michigan and Green Bay, is beautiful in October. This season's best Wisconsin foliage is here. A scenic drive along the Coastal Byway or a visit to Fish Creek and Ephraim are great ways to see the autumn colours.

Door County, Wisconsin

Visit this peaceful coastal retreat in October, even though it's called Cape May. The Victorian architecture, rich history, and beautiful beaches draw visitors to the seaside town. Cape May is busiest in summer, but October offers pleasant weather and vibrant autumn colours. 

Cape May, New Jersey

Charleston, South Carolina

Year-round visitors flock to Charleston, South Carolina for its rich history, elegant architecture, and vibrant cuisine. In October, this southern city shines. Charleston is more inviting for autumn cultural festivals and outdoor adventures as the southern summer cools and a gentle breeze blows through the cobblestone streets.

Mount Desert, Maine

Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park, is best in October. Explore rugged coastlines, granite peaks, and clear lakes. This picturesque destination is popular in summer, but October brings autumn colours and a quieter atmosphere. 

Eureka Springs, Arkansa

We recommend Eureka Springs for Ozarks sightseeing. The Ozark Mountains and waterways have beautiful fall foliage in October. Many visit in summer for water sports, but October is just as lovely. Experience the Ozark National Forest's rugged trails, stunning waterfalls, fishing, and boating.

Burlington, Vermont

Vermont is known as the best place in the US to see autumn colours in October. Burlington, on Lake Champlain, is the perfect place to see Vermont's autumn colours. Its natural and cultural attractions are captivating. The Green Mountains and Lake Champlain shores offer autumn colour for outdoor exploration. 

The Outer Banks, North Carolina

October offers the Outer Banks' quietest beaches. Long walks along these unique sandy shores are peaceful without summer crowds. Relax in the soft sand, listen to the waves, and enjoy the coastal breezes as summer ends and autumn begins. 

Sleepy Hollow, New York

Sleepy Hollow, New York, on the Hudson River, is a place of mystery and folklore that comes alive in October. Sleepy Hollow's history, haunting legends, and seasonal festivities come alive as the leaves turn red and the air cools. 

San Diego, California

California summer beaches are foggy and cold, while inland temperatures drawing in the coastal cover are unbearably hot, according to locals. Warm but mild temperatures and clear days make autumn a better time to enjoy California's famous weather. This is most evident in lovely San Diego. 

St. Thomas, US Virgin Island

Not everyone likes October's leaves and colder temperatures. Unhappy to see summer end in September? If you want summer days and sun all year, visit St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands to relieve post-summer blues. The Caribbean's best beaches are on St. Thomas. October is a good month to visit.
