Many of our most experienced Travelers say that the fall is their favorite time of the year to travel. Fewer crowds at popular attractions; cooler temperatures make it easier to get out and explore; and, of course, Mother Nature changes her colors to rich gold, red, and orange. Here is a list of our top states for fall travel assignments:
California – Think Altitude for Fall Color!
The higher up you go, the more beautiful the fall colors become. September and October are the best time to visit Nor Cali with fog free skies. If you’ve been wanting to visit wine country, you’ll be just in time for all the great wine making events – the Big Crush is a once in a lifetime experience! Plus, if you’re days off are during the week, you’ll avoid many of the crowds and be able to explore in peace. Of course, there are way more fall activities, but it would be better if you just experience CA for yourself!
