The U.S. has a lot to offer every season of the year. But the fall brings out something else, especially on small towns. Places with few inhabitants are worth putting on one’s radar not only because big crowds are a foreign concept. The lack of tourists means these towns are still authentic. Add that to the fact that it’s fall, and you get an exciting combination of picturesque foliage and a cheerful spirit. (This story originally appeared on The Active Times.)
