Golden yellow hues compliment burnt orange shades of the treetops and falling leaves pave the way for scenic drives. 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.
Stay at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls
2. Asheville, NC
