As fall starts to descends upon every other state here in the USA
except Florida it brings crisp cool weather, crunchy juicy apples that turn into delicious homemade apple cider, mountains of pumpkins, 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 end of this post theres a discount code to save money on your next weekend getaway!!!)
Best U.S. Cities to Visit this Fall
Blue Ridge Mountains, Georgia
Starting this list off with my current favorite place to visit in the fall; Blue Ridge, Georgia!!! The Blue Ridge Mountains stretch from Georgia all the way up to Tennessee, but they are a part of the large Appalachian mountains. Plus, its only a short 2 hour drive from the Atlanta Airport. Blue Ridge is one of my favorite places to visit and it is literally the perfect fall travel destination! The cabins in the woods (sounds like a scary movie, huh?) in the Georgia mountains are absolutely GORGEOUS. & the weather is PERFECT! There is also a small town called Ellijay, a few mins away that has an annual apple festival in the fall. Horseback Riding at Appalachian Trail Rides is one of my favorite activities there. The biking trails are another must do, as well! Check out my weekend travel guide & things to do in Blue Ridge Ga here!
San Francisco, California
Visiting San Francisco is a good choice anytime of year, but 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!
Flights to San Francisco are currently as low as $77 ROUNDTRIP! You can book this cheap flight here!
New York City, New York
The very first time I remember visiting NYC was years ago during fall. & in my opinion, the fall (and Christmastime, too actually) is the BEST time to visit. The city is already beautiful, but the fall fashion paired with everything else makes it breathtaking. Who doesn’t wanna be in NYC with bae AND wearing a comfy sweater, boots, & drinking cider?! No brainer.
The Berkshires, Massachusetts
For those who love cool weather, Massachusetts is always a good getaway destination. Even in the summer the weather is typically sunny with a constant, cool breeze. I went in July and it was about 70 degrees and sunny. 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.
Tennessee is one of my favorite places to visit, especially in the fall. 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!
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!
