Awesome Family Trips You’ll Actually Want to Take This Fall
1. Anchorage, Alaska
The nature-obsessed can get a two-for-one in Anchorage: Foliage viewing by day, Northern Lights come nightfall. For leaf peeping, head to Chugach State Park, an unspoiled utopia where Birch trees and fireweed illuminate the mountains in shades of reds and golds (keep your eyes on the lookout for moose, too). Before you cozy up in your room at the Hotel Captain Cook or the Historic Anchorage Hotel, chase aurora borealis dreams with insane Northern Lights views outside of Anchorage.
