The Best Day Trips in Every State

Reader's Digest Logo By Tamara Gane of Reader's Digest | Slide 2 of 51: Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama is only an hour and a half's drive from Birmingham, making it a perfect day trip from "The Magic City." Be sure to bring your camera when you visit—the park is over 15,000 acres on top of Lookout Mountain and the views are spectacular. There are rivers, waterfalls, canyons, and forests which turn brilliant shades of red, yellow, and gold in fall. Hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and bicycling are all popular here but if you're looking for a more laid back activity it's also a great place to take a scenic drive. These are the best places to spot fall foliage in America.
