From Arizona to Vermont, here are our favorite towns for checking out fall foliage.

No. 20 Ouray, CO

1 of 21

In this part of southwestern Colorado, at nearly 8,000 feet in the San Juan Mountains, autumn comes early—usually around mid-September. It peaks just a week or so later, although golden aspens will linger into October. Ouray has quick access to the San Juan Skyway, one of the best drives for fall scenery in the area. Back in town, take a refreshing dip at the public, million-gallon Ouray Hot Springs Pool, with its lap pool, diving area and slide, and soaking sections maintained between 88 and 106 degrees year-round.
