Fun and Relaxing Fall Getaways in The U.S.

As fall descends upon us it brings cooler weather, beautiful colors, and weekend getaways! The best part is that you don’t have to travel very far to experience the beauty of fall across the U.S. Here are some of my favorite places to visit in the fall to enjoy those crisp autumn days. (P.S. at the bottom theres a discount code to save money on your next weekend getaway!!!)

Blue Ridge Mountains, Georgia

The Blue Ridge Mountains stretch from Georgia all the way up to Tennessee. The cabins in the woods (sounds like a scary movie, huh?) in Georgia are absolutely GORGEOUS. There is also a small town called Ellijay, a few mins away that has an annual apple festival in the fall. The biking trails are another must do, as well!

The Berkshires, Massachusetts

For those who love cool weather, this is always a good getaway destination. Even in the summer the weather is typically sunny with a constant, cool breeze. Enjoying the Berkshires in the fall can be as simple as relaxing at a bed and breakfast, taking a hike in the beautiful mountains, or attending one of the many fall festivals in the area.

San Francisco, California

Visiting San Francisco in the fall means smaller crowds and less tourists, while still having nice weather to experience all the city has to offer. While there, take a short drive to Apple Hill in Sacramento because nothing says fall like apple cider, a pumpkin patch, donuts, and caramel apples!

Smoky Mountains

Tennessee is one of my favorite places to visit. As a Floridian, I have learned to really appreciate destinations that are less humid. Activities in Smoky Mountains include horseback riding, rafting, many amusement parks including Dollywood, and my absolute favorite activity is watching the sky become a canvas as the sunrise and sunset paint across it.

Denver, Colorado

Not only does Denver boast some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the country, the city also has a laundry list of festivals all season long! From Oktoberfest, Film Festivals, to Pumpkinfest, to Beerfest theres something fun for everyone in the Mile High City!

A quick google or AirBnB search will bring you to many lodging options for the locations listed above, including beautiful fully furnished houses, cabins and chalets overlooking the mountains and lakes. While you’re at it, save 35$ on your next AirBnB.com booking by using my code: www.airbnb.com/c/diamj1

      1. I’m currently in Sweden and it feels like all of fall happened in a day. We went from +17 C weather to -1 C in 2 days, so I’m also dreaming of fall weather haha.
