Ukiah, CA

Autumn in this throwback burg explodes with foliage that rivals Vermont’s. The city—population 16,000—may be the largest city in Mendocino County, but the place is as small-town as it gets. It’s got 19th-century architecture, charming tree-lined neighborhoods, and a laid-back vibe without the bustling feel of its wine country neighbors. Make sure you save time for the indoor and outdoor mineral baths at Vichy Springs Resort (pictured).
