2. Canoe through fall foliage in New York’s Adirondack Mountains.
The Adirondacks get some of the earliest fall foliage in the nation, making this mountainous patch of Upstate New York a great place to catch the first glimpse of the transition. For some of the best camping in the region head to the spindly and little-known Indian Lake — about two hours closer to New York City than its more famous neighbor, Lake Placid — which offers 55 lakefront campsites you can only reach by water. Rent a canoe at the Indian Lake or Lewey Lake boat launches and row over to your pre-booked site with all the gear you’ll need for the trip. Book far enough in advance and you can even camp on your own private island in the middle of the lake.
