10 Cities You'll Think Are Awesome in the Autumn

MoneyWise Logo By Graham Hughes of MoneyWise | Slide 2 of 10: With that in mind, here are our 10 picks for cities that are breathtaking in the fall. As a city, Boston seems resigned to play second fiddle to its bigger, brasher, more Big-Apple-y cousin 200 miles to the southwest. Yet come the fall, Boston begins to punch above its weight, enchanting visitors with a fiery display of autumnal splendor spread out over 2,300 acres of parkland. Boston is home to thousands of trees, many over a century old. As the leaves turn, the city becomes an increasingly charming place, and serves as a spectacular gateway to New England’s celebrated fall foliage. Situated in England’s industrial north, Liverpool isn’t necessarily a place that springs to mind when one thinks of beautiful cities. But while the north end of town still struggles with its post-industrial malaise, the south side (long ago home to the city’s wealthy merchants and aristocrats) plays host to a surprising number of green spaces and grand boulevards. For a truly sublime experience, take an autumnal constitutional along the broad, tree-lined avenues of the Sefton Park area as the afternoon sunshine pours though the kaleidoscopic canopy of orange, red and brown.
