Fall Weekend Getaways

October offers a number of opportunities for long weekend vacations.  Fall break, Columbus Day and Halloween all provide chances to break out of your monotonous routine for a weekend getaway.  And less demand for fall travel means that you might even be able to score a last minute deal for a spontaneous adventure!

Fall Foliage
A long October weekend offers the chance to take in some of the world’s most picturesque landscapes.  Book a bed and breakfast and enjoy a road trip on one of America’s scenic roads.  The best part is that you probably don’t have to go too far from home!  And if you are in for a real treat, try New England.

Fall Harvest Festivals

Stop at your local farm to enjoy a fall festival and fresh produce.  Pick your own apples, enjoy cider and donuts, parade around a pumpkin patch, or get lost in a corn maze.  For an intoxicating experience, head to Napa Valley (or your local vineyard) for a wine tasting while the grapes are harvested from the vines.

New York City
Explore the sights of the Big Apple as a tourist before the weather turns cold and people go into hibernation for the winter.

Columbus Day Weekend
It’s a three day weekend to celebrate the European explorer who put the Americas on the Old World map.  The perfect weekend for a quick getaway to enjoy your favorite part of fall.  Head to a big city for some cultural exploration or a small town to feel the real charm of America.  We’ll update this with incredible deals as Columbus Day 2012 approaches.
