A country stroll with dazzling fall colors? Nice! But the fall foliage in these big cities is just as spectacular.
Don’t let the name put you off: In Saint Petersburg the Summer Garden is the place to go for a fall walk, along paths lined with dainty sculptures and blazing trees.
The best place to enjoy fall color in China is the Imperial Xiangshan Park in Beijing. The maple and kaki trees glow in brilliant shades of red and yellow, interspersed with pagodas, pavilions, temples and a villa that was once home to Mao Zedong.
And where do New Yorkers go for a breath of crisp fall air? To Central Park, with its 20 000 trees. You can also catch some color in Fort Tryon Park (Manhattan), Prospect Park (Brooklyn) and Alley Pond Park (Queens).
