The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, and there are pumpkins every corner you turn. This can only mean one thing: it’s fall!
If you’re not about infusing pumpkin spice into everything you eat and drink, then we have a better alternative plan for our Wendy Watchers.
Get outside and enjoy the scenery before you start to hibernate.
Here are the best places to visit this fall.
Located in western Massachusetts, the Berkshires are not short of activities for you to do while enjoying the fall foliage. The scenery is so good, that the Berkshires have an entire festival dedicated to it. For over 60 years, the Fall Foliage Festival has been a Massachusetts staple.
Cape May, New Jersey
Who says the fun in Jersey ends when summer does?! Cape May is one of the oldest shore towns in the United States, and the small town vibe is at an all time high here. Once fall starts, the Victorian town experiences a makeover, and the autumn happenings take way. One of the notable Cape May experiences are the Halloween themed tours in October. In a town that was founded in the late 1600s, we’re sure there’s a lot of spookation to be seen.
Napa Valley, California
The luxuriation of it all! Napa Valley is the place to go if you want to getaway with your significant other or your girls. Enjoy the scenery with a glass of wine, and hit up the spa when you’re done. There’s plenty to do in Napa Valley, but we’re gonna take a wild guess and assume our Wendy Watchers will be more than pleased with a relaxing morning at the spa, some Napa wine during the day, and exploring the nightlife scene after a disco nap.
Colorado is known for their ski slopes (amongst other things). It’s also one of the best places to experience fall, specifically Snowmass. Snowmass is the perfect place to be when you need a little escape, but don’t want to be completely out of touch with the world. We are especially into the idea of experiencing the Aspen Film Festival, which is less than 20 minutes from Snowmass. You’re bound to run into some celebrities there, and enjoy a few movies.
Taos, New Mexico
Never heard of Taos? It just might become your new favorite place. “Far away from the every day,” Taos lives up to its slogan. This is where you go when you’re in need of a little rejuvenation. After all these years, Taos has stayed true to its roots. If you want to see the beauty that is fall in New Mexico, you must travel through the Enchanted Circle. We know it sounds insane, but hear us out! The Enchanted Circle is an 85-mile scenic byway that immerses you through valleys, mountains, rivers, and wildlife. Rent a convertible, and take the day to drive around. You won’t regret it!
