Amherst, MA

(#10 tie): Top Foliage Town
Local poet Emily Dickinson knew how to appreciate the subtle beauty of nature–from a certain slant of light to the changing shades of a sugar maple. Now her family homestead is one of the many cultural attractions that come alive each fall when the students return to picturesque Amherst College. The highlight of the season is the annual Fall Foliage Walk from the town common, across campus, and along the tree-lined ridge of the Norwottuck Rail Trail.
