  1. Holy Hill


    Holy Hill

    Located about an hour outside the city, the scenic ride to this Catholic shrine is a favorite among local bikers, especially when the fall colors start to turn. Once you reach the basilica, take in the view from atop the Scenic Tower – you might need to leave your leathers behind to climb the 178 stairs, but it’s worth it.
