5 Fall Locales Worth a Visit

Fall is a time of bright colors and crisp air.  You want to lace up your boots and grab a jacket so that you can head outside to enjoy all that this season has to offer.  If you truly want to revel in the beauty of autumn, there are some destinations that you should consider heading to.  These are all family-friendly places that will allow you to truly absorb the colors, scents and tastes that fall has to offer.

OREGON

If you are on the Pacific Coast, Oregon is a great place to take a weekend trip to.  You can enjoy the fall breezes coming in off of the ocean, the breathtaking autumn sunsets and every color of foliage that you can imagine.  There are plenty of parks and gardens throughout the state that you can enjoy.  This state also has a major wine harvest during the fall season.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND

If you are looking for a great fall destination that combines great colors and some US history, Baltimore is just what you need.  The Chesapeake Bay is a place where you can find hoards of trees with bright yellow and red leaves that are set against a backdrop of deep blue ocean water.  You can also catch a glimpse of great wildlife.

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

If you head to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, about 30 minutes from downtown Minneapolis, you will enjoy amazing colors as you stroll the acres of public gardens.  There are natural habitats, shrubs and trees.  You can also head to the many lakes in the area if you want to see the reflections of the trees on the water.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH

You can lace up your hiking boots and head out into the mountains of Utah.  You will be greeted with a variety of trees and plants that are changing color for the fall season.  The rugged hills are blanketed in reds, oranges, browns and yellows during autumn.  You can also catch great views of the mountains and get in a great hiking workout.

ROUTE 100, VERMONT

When you think about fall, Vermont is probably the first state that comes to mind.  Route 100 is known for being lined with thousands of trees as this is at the Berkshire Mountains foothills.  Enjoy fresh food, quaint bed and breakfasts and vibrant colors as you relax and observe the local wildlife.

  1. Our fall landscapes here in Las Vegas are disappointing to say the least, but I have a work trip scheduled to Minneapolis next month, and your post just got me all kinds of extra excited. Bring on that gorgeous foliage!

  2. Looks beautiful!! This looks very similar to the landscape of Northern Michigan…one of my favorite places. I will have to put Minneapolis on my list of places to visit!

  3. These are great suggestions. My husband and I are planning a mini vacation in October. Maryland sounds fun.

  4. Our Family World

    I have always wanted to visit Oregon. I think it is the best place to visit if you want to be one with nature. I hope me and my husband could squeeze in a little vacation in the fall so we can head on over to Oregon.

    I have never been to Oregon, but I would love to see it in person someday. Maryland is one of my favorite places to visit. We will probably go there next year. 

  6. I love the pretty colors of fall. With kids, it is super hard to travel during the school year. Each one of these locations would be amazing to see. My aunt used to live in UT.

  7. I see you missed Michigan. You should not, we have incredible falls. Also, North Carolina.

  8. I have always wanted to visit Oregon, especially Portland. I probably won’t be visiting there anytime soon due to my busy schedule, but I definitely want to visit there within the next few years. It would also be lovely to visit during fall!

  9. One of these days I’m going to visit a place like one of these that actually has a fall season. Here in Texas we have summer and not summer, lol.
