That’s why we’re taking a look at 3 autumnal color palettes inspired by these favorite fall getaways.
Leaf peeping draws tourists every fall to New England, particularly Vermont, known for its peak foliage and sweeping vistas.

For those in the Southwest, fall is an ideal time to make a visit to the red rock buttes of Sedona, Arizona. The season’s mild temperatures make this an ideal time to explore the area’s numerous trailheads or scale the canyons of its famous sandstone formations.
