41. Stone Harbor, NJ
Why go: You know all about summers at the Jersey Shore, but fall in this southern shore town—situated on one of New Jersey’s barrier islands—is beautiful and quiet. The easy drive up or down the Garden State Parkway from New York or Delaware is a nice way to scope the changing leaves before hanging on to that last bit of summer on the beach.
Where to stay: The Reeds at Shelter Haven, a 58-room hotel located right on the bay, just opened a brand new, two-story Salt Spa, the first full-service luxury spa of its kind in the region (there are another 21 guest rooms in the spa building). Try the Turkish bath, Himalayan salt room, and Soft Pack Float treatments to really decompress.
