42. Eureka Springs, AR
Why go: Autumn brings brilliant colors to the Arkansas Ozarks, and there’s a network of hiking and mountain biking trails leading straight out of this Victorian village to help you immerse yourself in the season. If you day-trip to the Buffalo National Park River, you may spot elk grazing in Boxley Valley, and driving down the Pig Trail National Scenic Byway is another way to take in the foliage.
Where to stay: The Crescent Hotel isn’t just the only mountaintop resort in the area, it’s also known as “America’s Most Haunted Hotel.” The 130-year-old building was once a medical facility with a terrible survival rate. Guests regularly report supernatural occurrences, and you better believe the property offers ghost tours.
