46. Concord, NH
Why go: There’s no better place to take in the foliage than New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, with it’s 250 lakes, ponds, and even beaches. Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest of the bunch at 72 square miles, but you should check out Squam Lake, Lake Ossipee, Mirror Lake, and Newfound Lake, too. Leaf season here lingers from late September through late October thanks to its distance from the cold winds coming off the coast.
Where to stay: Wolfeboro claims to be the nation’s oldest resort town, and the Wolfeboro Inn sits right on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee (there’s even a small private beach). For an extra homey touch, turndown service every night includes homemade fudge.
