US News and World Report recently ranked their top 50 towns in the United States for Fall Foliage, and these 3 Upstate New York spots made the list!

#9 - Lake Placid

US News and World Report says Lake Placid is '...the idyllic escape for embracing a kaleidoscope of yellow, purple, scarlet and auburn in fall.' In simpler terms, Placid is absolutely stunning in Autumn.

#39 Alexandra Bay

This one is way up there, right on the St. Lawrence River near the Great Lakes and US News and World Report says optimal leaf viewing here happens in September!

#49 Skaneateles

Located in the Finger Lakes Region, US News and World Report says the foliage here turns '...deep orange, yellow and crimson hues.' Plan this one with a winery tour and you have a nice little weekend in the Finger Lakes!
