JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - TripAdvisor recently released their list of the best places in the nation to see some beautiful fall colors and one Arkansas town made the cut.

Around 82% of travelers plan to take an autumn getaway and 49% are planning to view some fall foliage in the coming weeks, according to a recent TripAdvisor survey.

The travel site put together a list of the top destinations for viewing fall foliage, based on the quality and quantity of reviews and opinions from the travelers that use their service.

The report limited the list to one city per state.

Eureka Springs ranked just below Niagara Falls on the list.
