Grand Canyon National Park

With breathtaking views, mild weather, and smaller crowds, autumn is one of the best times to explore Grand Canyon National Park. The South Rim is home to some of the most photographed and beloved viewpoints of the Grand Canyon. And while the photos are often spectacular, there’s simply nothing like seeing the Grand Canyon in-person. One glimpse, and you’ll quickly understand why it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. From wildlife to wondrous cliffside views, guided tours to an unforgettable ride on a historic railway, there’s something for everyone here.

Yellowstone National Park

If you’re an animal lover, then Yellowstone National Park is the perfect fall destination for you. With mating season in full bloom by September, the wildlife of Yellowstone are active, curious, and on the move. Are you an avid photographer? Well, be sure to have a camera ready to capture the life and rugged beauty found throughout this picturesque national park — from the Grand Prismatic Spring to Old Faithful. And, since fall is shoulder season here, that means the space is more wide-open — and so are your opportunities to partake in tours and activities, as well as find the lodging of your dreams.

Death Valley National Park

Despite the name, Death Valley National Park really comes alive in the fall — and is the perfect destination for any nature explorer. Visiting in fall means avoiding the heat of California’s summer months and instead enjoying a visit during the shoulder season where crowds are smaller and the weather is cooler. Described as “otherworldly,” this national park’s awe-inspiring, diverse landscapes and rich history is full of life and adventure. From catching the sunrise at Zabriskie Point, wading in the spring-fed pools at The Inn at Death Valley, teeing off at the world’s lowest elevation golf course, to exploring the 2100-year-old volcanic crater of Ubehebe, you’re sure to find a stunning, out-of-this-world visual you never thought possible!
