7. Taughannock Falls, New York
The Taughannock waterfalls in New York are another example of spectacular scenery. Cascading from a flat rock face, these falls are especially enchanting during the autumn months. The red and gold foliage atop the falls provide the perfect frame to the crisp white of the tumbling water. You reach a fantastic view of the Taughannock Falls by walking along a 3/4-mile-long trail.
