Foliage season is always a busy time in Stowe but this season the town may see even more leaf peepers, after landing on top of TripAdvisor's top 10 list of U.S. fall foliage destinations.

TripAdvisor is a popular crowd-sourcing travel review website. The top 10 list is "based on the quality and quantity of reviews mentioning terms related to fall foliage, as well as the quantity and quality of reviews for hotels, restaurants and attractions in each destination," according to a press release issued late last week.

The site limited its list to one destination per state, so Stowe's appearance meant other Vermont towns were ineligible to make the list. The top ten destinations listed are:

  1. Stowe, Vermont
  2. North Conway, New Hampshire
  3. Aspen, Colorado
  4. Niagara Falls, New York
  5. Eureka Springs, Arkansas
  6. Park City, Utah
  7. Asheville, North Carolina
  8. Greenville, South Carolina
  9. Portland, Oregon
  10. Gatlinburg, Tennessee
