Top fall foliage destinations around the world

The crisp mornings and cool evenings of autumn transform forests, parks and wilderness areas around the world into a brilliant spectrum of fall color. From fiery shades of red and orange to golden hues of yellow and gold, the display is breathtaking. Whether you live on the Eastern seaboard, in the Midwest or on the West Coast, or even if you’re traveling abroad, there are ample opportunities for leaf-peeping in many places around the world.

In a new photo gallery on Bing Travel, we’ve suggested 20 U.S. and international destinations with the best fall foliage. Most Americans first think of New England when dreaming of a leaf-peeping trip. But our neighbors in Canada have arguably some of the most spectacular fall foliage in North America. Or, if you’re traveling to Europe, keep in mind that the Alps — which extend from France to Slovenia and into all the countries in between — are also ablaze in color each autumn. And gardens in England and Japan are as admired by visitors for their fall hues as they are for their springtime greenery.

What do you think are the best places to see fall foliage? Share your favorite spots in the comments section. And then, fans of Bing Travel can upload your own fall foliage photos to the Bing foliage gallery on Facebook. Your image could be chosen as the "photo of the week."

  • New England in autumn has always been one of my dream destinations. Hope to spend time there one year during the season while writing.

  • In the last three years, my wife and I have vacationed in the fall. Three years ago in Colorado, last year in New England, and this year, the Grand Tentons and Yellowstone.

    If the subject is where is the best "fall colors", hands down is Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Mass. and the other

    New England states.

    The golden Aspens and Red Firebush are beautiful, but only

    in a small patch. Where as in NE, the whole mountain will be a bright red, yellow, purple or green. As you drive down a back road, the color of leaves will be along side of the road as well in the horizion. The fall color is more abundant in the NE.

    When is the best time to see the New England fall colors?

  • I live in Worcester Mass and the Worcester Hills are the best so far

  • If you have never been to the beautiful Ozarks here in southern Missouri then you are truly missing out on a feast for the eyes. Our Fall foliage looks like Joseph's coat of many colors. Our hills are covered with many different varieties of beautiful leafy trees as well as our cedar and pines. October is the best time to visit if you want to experience the best fall colors. I love my home. I have been other places but when I come home I want to soak up those beautiful fall colors.

  • Greene County in Central Virginia is a wonderful place to visit to enjoy the fall colors.  Stayed tucked away at a wonderful B&B, campground or cabin or get out and enjoy the many local events, historic sites or wineries. The views up to the Blue Ridge Mountains are rivaled only by the views from the Shenandoah National Park back down into the valleys.

  • The Skyline Drive in Virginia is one of the most beautiful places in the fall. Also, if you just drive Interstate 81 South you can freely partake of the fall foliage from the Appalachian and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
