As the summer months begin to die down, we are slowly seeing our country transition into the beauty of fall. When the warm months start to fade, people begin to get back into their work habits and are normally done vacationing for the year. Although the sun might not show its face as much, there are places around the country whose true beauty is seen during the fall. Check out some the best cities around the country for a fall weekend getaway.



Not known for its particularly high temperatures, the capitol of Colorado sees signs of fall earlier than many other parts of the country. With fall foliage appearing as soon as early September, guests visiting can take in the beautiful nature the city provides. Since temperatures will likely remain in the 60s through October, there are plenty of outdoor activities to check out. Many of the city’s popular festivals including, the Great American Beer Festival, falls during September and October.


Portland, OR

Weather wise, the summer is the best time to visit the Northwest coast, as temperatures never get too hot. However, if you are looking for a cheap getaway, the fall is your time to go to Portland. Accommodations will drop their prices and the scenery is a site for sore eyes. If you hold off until November you can check out the Northwest Food & Wine Festival, an event you don’t want to miss. Along with the food festival, the eating scene in Portlans comes alive in the fall. With local produce and fish making their way onto many menus, any foodie would be silly to miss out on this opportunity to indulge.


Savannah, GA

If you can stay away from the Peach State in the summer, do it at all costs. When the high humidity drops, this historic town is one destination you want to have on your bucket list. Full of rich and enlightening history, Savannah has something for everyone to enjoy. Take a stroll down River Street and watch the cargo ships pass, or hop on a ghost tour to learn about the hauntings that roam the old streets. Though the humidity will drop, the warm weather lingers well into September and October. This means you can still visit the nearby Tybee Island full of beach culture and quirky shops.
