“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

1. Hocking Hills, OH 

Throw on your coziest sweaters, strap on your hiking boots, and go out and explore the natural beauty of Hocking Hills in the fall. Golden yellow hues compliment burnt orange shades of the treetops and falling leaves pave the way for scenic drives. With this in mind, if you’re lucky enough to be in town for the Circleville Pumpkin Show or Jackson County Apple Festival, be sure to attend! You’ll love the small-town America feel. 

Glenlaurel, A Scottish Inn & Cottages

Glenlaurel is a "wee bit o' Scottish highlands" in the heart of Ohio's Hocking Hills.  Altogether, the 140-acre estate is home to secluded and romantic crofts and cottages, private hiking trails, a Scottish Links golf course, a spa, and an on-site pub.  In particular, you'll love the housemade Scottish shortbread with your morning tea or coffee!

2. Asheville, NC

The Asheville area abounds with unique art, natural wonders, and charming eateries. In the fall, the changing colors serve as a bonus incentive for curious travelers. Spend your days hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains or shopping around downtown. Bookend your day with delicious meals at some of the best local restaurants. To be sure, you’ll find no shortage of things to do!
