Summer is a swell season, but throwing on a cozy sweater, pouring some hot cocoa in a travel mug and meandering along a woodland trail lined with trees changing hues isn't so bad either. Hello, Fall. To make the transition easier, park yourself at a property where plenty of nature is on the doorstep -- here 11 spectacular spots for autumn, from New York to Norway.

With peak fall foliage season already underway, now is the time to get out and explore some of the stunning vistas and activities that autumn has to offer.
