When autumn comes around it's the best time to escape for an earthy and brilliantly colored vacation. There's no better way to rejuvenate from a busy summer than by kicking back near a fire and enjoying the beauty of the changing landscape. The United States has many great locations for autumn vacations; here are some of the best.

Lenox, Massachusetts

This cozy town is perfect for a relaxing Fall vacation. The old town was established in 1750 and is filled with distinguished buildings and scenery fit for a movie set.

The vibrant colors against the backdrop of the sky and lake make for one breathtaking view. The fall is their slow time for tourism, so enjoy this town without dealing with the crowds.

Enjoy a five-star Mediterranean dinner at Alta, or if you're not in the mood for Mediterranean go out for a five-star Italian dinner at Prime Italian Steak Bar. If you're looking for more than just relaxing with a magnificent view, Lenox has plenty of entertainment. Enjoy an evening out at the Shakespeare & Company or head over to the Tanglewood Music Center for a live show.

Aspen, Colorado

There is no shortage of breathtaking views in Aspen. Famous for its golden foliage in the fall, it is well worth escaping to. It's no wonder why those who stumbled upon the landscape there in 1879 didn't leave. The view is hard to beat, add that with the endless entertainment in the area, and you get one great vacation.

Aspen has something for everyone, especially when it comes to food.

Vegetarian? No problem, they have you covered. In the mood for Japanese or sushi? Again, Aspen has just what you need. They also have traditional American cuisine. It's no different when it comes to entertainment options. In the fall you can relax while enjoying the view of golden colored leaves, all while fly fishing. This is also the perfect time of the year for a bike ride through the peaceful countryside, or take a scenic drive.

While you are there don't forget to check out the ghost town, once a mining community now empty. Also, a fun thing to do is check out the continental divide.

Nashville, Tennessee

This bustling city doesn't slow down with the seasons. Nashville was founded in 1779 and is the Country Music Capital of the United States. It stays active year-round, but in the fall the landscape morphs into a beautiful painting of deep reds and vibrant yellows. Go down and sit by the Cumberland River and listen to the musical city, all while taking in the view.
