Cooler weather and eating chili go together like water melon and summer. You can’t separate the two even if you’re not a fan. But who doesn’t like chili!? Especially since there seems to be more variations than there are tips on what kind of oil to use in your bike.

So just like we searched for and found a list of great fall foliage destinations, we found a pretty interesting list of the best places to find chili in the U.S. Of course, die hard chili fans may take issue with this list, but the more open-minded may find a place they hadn’t heard of before.

There are some surprise locations here, including Birmingham, AL and Stowe, VT, but surprise is good. We think a road trip to take each of these in at some point could be in order!
