If you live in the area, you may be familiar with Grounds For Sculpture. This sculpture garden is one of the most beautiful places in the entire state and totally bucket-list worthy if you're a resident of New Jersey. You can easily spend a whole day here wandering these perfectly manicured lawns taking in all the intriguing sculptures and gorgeous gardens. The landscaping here is truly one-of-a-kind and includes a tunnel of trees that makes for the perfect fall destination.

This tunnel of trees is called the Red Maple Allee. While the art sculptures that surround it are wonderful, this tunnel of trees is absolutely breathtaking. You can find the Red Maple Alle between the Fairgrounds Gardens and the Seward Johnson Center For The Arts.

In the summer months, the canopy of trees is a shady respite from the summer heat. The tiny inlets of light create a magical atmosphere as you walk through. In the autumn, this tunnel transforms into a foliage wonderland complete with bright orange, yellow, and red leaves. You'll spot views like this during the end of October and into early November.
