20. Portland, OR
Why go: What better season for Portland’s moody weather than fall? There’s a surprising amount of leaf-peeping locations right in the city, starting with the 12.4-acre Japanese Garden within Washington Park. Time it right, and it’ll be ablaze with red Japanese maples. The city’s brew scene also ups the ante during the fall, thanks to the seasonal hops harvest.
Where to stay: Keep the autumn momentum going at the Woodlark Hotel, which opened in December 2018 in the center of Portland’s downtown district. The property’s 150 rooms were designed with a green “forest flora” palette. Picture deep green color tones and custom wallpaper that resembles the nearby Forest Park. The rooms even come with Salt & Straw ice cream menus.
