Come fall, when the leaves change colors to the most rich greens, yellows and reds you'll ever see, this small, Adirondack town becomes a serene paradise. A quick drive from the Tri-State area and most New England, the one-time Olympic village wins the gold medal when it comes to its abundance of spas and relaxation places (more on that soon). With the cooler, dryer weather approaching, you'll definitely want to pack lots of hydrating products and a trendy fall lip color for a dinner in town.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm; $7.99, ulta.com

Where to Stay & Spa:
Whiteface Lodge, 7 Whiteface Inn Ln, Lake Placid, NY 12946
At Whiteface Lodge, massage therapists use stones from the local Ausable River, says Spa Director Jamie Costa. "The heat from the stones opens up the blood vessels and increases blood flow. This loosens the muscles and breaks up lactic acid build up that otherwise has no way to get out of the system, allowing the massage to cleanse and detoxify the muscles," she adds. In fact, according to Costa, "the cleansing of lymph nodes aids in cellular repair for the topical layer of skin, ultimately creating toned skin." A massage that feels amazing, de-stresses and tightens your skin...yes, please!
