To get the full fall experience, you won't have to travel far.

As a fall lover, I get really excited about those little things that indicate that the season is here. Aside from football, which is a huge part, I love seeing the leaves change color, the dew on the grass, and feeling that crisp air on my face. Toss in a PSL and I'm as happy as a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter.

When it comes to those undeniable features of fall, some states have more than others. There's such a difference that Thrillist ranked every single state based on how "Fantastic Its Fall Is." They looked at weather, seasonal beauty, fall activities and more.

Colorado is just about as good as it gets.

They put us at number three on their list. Aside from breathtaking views that become more magnificent in fall colors, Colorado is home to some of the best football and beer experiences in the nation. I'd say the only downside is that fall doesn't last long enough. That winter wonderland loves to creep in before I've had my fill.

The only states that ranked higher than Colorado were Minnesota (2) and Vermont (1).
