Your Fall Vacation Awaits:
Brevard, North Carolina
Basically turn any which way and you’ll find a lush forest – Nantahala National Forest, Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest just to name a few for you. You can watch the water drop at Looking Glass Falls or get out on the trails to see why the city is nicknamed “The Land of Waterfalls.” It’s stunning and an amazing fall vacation.

That’s right. Travel to Stowe, Vermont and you can see the foliage from above on an exhilarating zipline. You can still stay on the ground if you want to with some local trails or a group mountain biking tour, but that view from above is just incredible.
Jefferson, New Hampshire
This is such a peaceful location with the White Mountains nearby. The air is fresh, the scenery is gorgeous and there’s plenty of hiking. You can travel to the Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge to check out what they have to offer to round out your relaxing fall vacation.
With a backdrop of the Pocono Mountains, it’s easy to see why this would be a beautiful fall vacation. But there’s more to it than just that. You’re only about a 90-minute drive from New York City if you want some big city life, but in Milford, it’s small town all the way. There are beautiful falls from the Delaware River and streets lined with Victorian buildings. It’s the perfect place to get away from it all.
The city of Clayton is at the foot of Black Rock Mountain with the Chattooga River nearby. It’s a great place to go white-water rafting in a breathtaking landscape with waterfalls. And you’re only a few miles from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, so you have all you’d need for the perfect fall vacation.
West Glacier, Montana
Fall is the perfect time to visit West Glacier with all the leaves turning and with the summer crowds thinning out. That gives all those there for the gorgeous fall foliage the chance to have some breathing room. And it’s the perfect place to stay to visit Glacier National Park nearby.
Weaverville, North Carolina
Looking back in history, Weaverville was a much-needed retreat in the 19th century for those needing an escape from the summer heat. Its cool air and mountain views make it just as amazing in the fall. You can drive along the famous Blue Ridge Parkway or hit the trails at the Alexander Bike Park or even take a picnic to the shores of Lake Louise. It’s a fall-lover’s dream.
Fall is one of the most beautiful times to travel. It offers a respite from the busy day-to-day with an opportunity to sit back and watch the leaves change colors and marvel at nature. There are so many amazing places for a fall vacation. What’s your favorite?
