Road Trip

With Labor Day here and gone, the weather has begun cooling, the leaves have begun to change their color, and the kids have gone back to school.  Whether you and your significant other are looking to get away for some much needed alone time or you’re looking to take the kids on a weekend jaunt, the fall is a great time for an entirely different brand of road trip.

For those looking to bask in the golden/auburn/vermillion warmth of fall colors, The Travel Channel lists region-specific locales of the best spots for taking in the foliage.  There’s Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina, the Lake Superior Circle Route that stretches from America to Canada, and The Maroon Bells in Aspen.

With the baseball season winding down and NCAA and NFL football returning once more, why not make good on that dream to visit stadiums across the country?  With pennant races rounding the home stretch and gridiron rivalries renewed, consider cheering on your home team from the friendly confines of an opponent’s field.

For the month of Halloween, you can plan spooky travels to places like Salem, Mass. and to events like the world’s biggest pumpkin festival in Keene, New Hampshire.  Corn mazes, ghost tours, and hayrides are abundant and family friendly, and thrill seekers can explore some of the world’s best haunted attractions such as The 13th Gate in Baton Rouge, Netherworld Haunted House in Atlanta, and The Dent Schoolhouse in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Whatever you intention and whatever your flavor, fall provides an abundance of road trip possibilities to keep you busy all through the autumnal.
