47. Port Angeles, WA
Why go: Peep the colors of fall while driving the 101 from Seattle into the depths of the Pacific Northwest. With snow coming to the mountain peaks and rain picking up, the rainforest river valleys of Olympic National Park become especially lush during the autumn. It might be wet, but you’re likely to have the hiking and biking trails lined with 500-year-old trees throughout the park to yourself.
Where to stay: Nestled on the shores of Lake Crescent, Lake Crescent Lodge dates back to 1915. The historic lodge is owned by the National Park Service and open seasonally, all the way until the end of January. The cozy sun porch is the perfect place to take in fall sunsets over the lake.
