With the fall season taking over, it’s time to take advantage of the cooler climate and plan a little fall getaway to nourish your soul and soak in the beauty of the red and gold hues that come with this season. Whether you decide to make it a quick trip or a week-long vacay, a fall getaway is a must.
Some individuals would argue that fall is one of the best seasons of the year. With cozy temperatures and crackling leaves, it’s the most calming of all seasons, allowing us to relax before the festivities of Thanksgiving and Christmas begin.
Places to Visit During Fall
1. Cape May, New Jersey
If you love butterflies, you’re going to want to visit Cape May. This quaint little beach town is the perfect fall destination where you’ll find butterflies stopping for a break on the beach during their period of migration.
Rent a bike to ride along the coast and don’t forget to enjoy a fun brunch at the Blue Pig Tavern in Congress Hall hotel.
2. Big Sur, California
California has it all, from the mountains to the sea, and although it’s not known for its seasons, the beautiful weather and scenery make it a definite getaway spot to enjoy your vacay.
With amazing views of the coast and exciting hiking trails, there are tons of sightseeing you can do that includes shopping, visiting art galleries and enjoying some good food.
3. Jackson Hole, Wyoming
September and October are the best months to visit Jackson Hole to enjoy everything there is to do in the Tetons.
