Anchorage, Alaska

Alaska is the most northern state so it makes sense that its climate, while frigid during the winter, would be warm and temperate throughout the rest of the year. For those really seeking those autumn vibes in the middle of the summer, this is the perfect city to which to plan a trip.

There's nothing to not love about this city and the state it resides in, with scenic views that make travelers feel as though they're in another country and crisp mountain air.

From hiking and sightseeing to exploring the city and trying Alaska's most iconic dishes, this is a perfect summer trip just waiting to happen.

Providence, Rhode Island

While Rhode Island might see temperatures that are slightly higher than what one would expect during the fall months, this New England state is small enough to exude charm in every aspect. With its seaside coast, there's no shortage of things to do and see, from exploring this state's small towns to taking in all the fresh seafood one can get their hand on.

Rhode Island is a beautiful state for beachside hiking and if staying in the city of Providence sounds more alluring, a weekend festival is never far out of reach. The celebratory, community aspect of Providence will give travelers that warm feeling akin to attending a fall festival - without the chance of snow or freezing temperatures.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire

There's so much to see and do in Portsmouth that travelers might want to consider an entire week in this city rather than just a weekend. New Hampshire, in general, gives off more fall vibes than anywhere else in the U.S., and even during the summer, the breeze in the air is a reminder that fall months are never too far away.

The temperatures in this state are a bit more bearable during the summer months and the city of Portsmouth, in particular, combines the best of both a mountainous state and a seaside city. There's an endless number of shops that line cobblestone streets, and for the history buffs, this city is full of rich backstories. With so much to do outdoors, as well, this is one destination that should be on every nature-lovers list - especially in the fall.

Louisville, Kentucky

During the fall, Louisville absolutely comes to life. The many trees that dot its landscape come ablaze in a variety of colors that would make anyone fall in love with this state. During the rest of the year, its quiet, contemplative nature reminds travelers to take the road less traveled and enjoy the small things.

If this isn't a fall vibe, then we're not really sure what is! There's plenty to explore in Louisville, specifically, and for the bourbon lovers out there, following the bourbon trail will make them feel as though fall is right around the corner - even if it's only July.

Salem, Massachusetts

Salem is a feeling as much as it's a destination. What do we mean by that? Even when it's not October in this city, it's still October. Salem is known for its dark history that follows the Salem Witch Trials, and the city has slowly become a haven for all things spooky, creepy, monstrous, and eerie.

While it's overwhelmingly popular during the fall season, its off-season is equally as enjoyable with fewer tourists and many of the same attractions. And, hey, there's a good chance that no one is going to bat an eye if you decide to dress up in the middle of the summer rather than during the Halloween season.

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Gatlinburg is a charming small town in the state of Tennessee, known for beautiful architecture, and being the "gateway to the Smoky Mountains". A popular mountain resort destination, foggy Gatlinburg has plenty of cute shops, cozy accommodations, and delicious restaurants. All of that sits at the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is just as majestic as it sounds.

In Gatlinburg the outdoors surround visitors, the forests and mountains call to be explored and the misty, smoky mountain air is a sign that fall is always a little bit present.
