One of the things I was most excited about when I graduated was the freedom to travel more. Without having to spend weekends doing homework, working and participating in extracurriculars, I have them open to explore New England! With a bit of a wanderlust bug, here are some beautiful fall trips to take.
Virginia looks absolutely beautiful in the fall! Anything with mountains and fall temperatures sounds great in my book! National parks really are a national treasure and experiencing them during this beautiful season only make them more special. You can stay there, and there are some great towns around there to explore as well.
Savannah is a re-visit must for me! I loved it in June, and have heard that it’s even better in the fall. It’s a very walkable city, so you can cover a lot. It’s a pretty easy flight or drive if you’re near by. The farmers market I heard is beautiful.
A little plug for my home state! There are plenty of farms for you to explore, and the Kettle Moraine is a beautiful area to explore. Try the Ice Age Trail, it goes right through the Kettle Moraine and the vistas are stunning. It’s one thing that I miss about being home is all of the foliage! There are breweries to visit, and farmers markets to attend. Stay in the Third Ward if you stay in Milwaukee, but if you decide to drive from somewhere near by, Door County is about 3 hours north and is stunning in the fall.
One of the more popular places in Washington, the views would be even more spectacular in the fall. It’s not that far away from Seattle, so you can take an afternoon and experience the amazing vistas. There is a really cool spa near by if you’re looking for a really relaxing weekend next to an amazing waterfall.
Once again this maybe a little biased, but I was there about a year ago visiting one of my best friends who went to school there. I have to say it was absolutely beautiful, and I really want to visit again! Their downtown is gorgeous, and I know from my friend’s experience that it’s got some amazing hiking trails near by.
There is still time to take advantage of fall! We’ve got a good month left of nice weather, and if you’re within driving distance there really isn’t an excuse not to go!
Do you have any trips planned? What’s on your must-see this fall? Let me know if you go anywhere!
