44. Kohler, WI
Why go: On the western shores of Lake Michigan, Kohler—one of the first planned communities in the United States, dating back to 1913—was designed by the same people who created New York’s Central Park. In the fall, the foliage lights up along the Sheboygan River. Nearby, there are 500 acres of land, five miles of river, and more than 18 miles of trails from which you can take in the changing season.
Where to stay: The American Club Resort was originally built as housing for Kohler factory workers back in 1918, and was reinvented as a resort in the 1980s. Now, it’s a major wellness destination in the midwest. There are 241 guest rooms, 55 of which are in the Carriage House, which formerly housed a general store, dentist and doctor offices, and a police shooting range.
