It’s time for an autumn escape

As the air cools and the days get shorter, we begin to brace ourselves for the winter months. But before the ground is blanketed in white, the trees ignite in vibrant, fiery colors. This time of the year, the United States is home to some of the world’s best areas of spectacular foliage. Fodor’s recently released their list of the “10 Best Fall Foliage Trips in the U.S.” for 2016, and several of these magnificent places are on the Pack Up + Go destination list. Can you guess which ones?

We also came across this awesome interactive “Fall Foliage Prediction Map” from SmokeyMountains.com. Take a look and see when the leaves near you will be at their ripest.

Sure, beaches are great, but a fall foliage trip is a unique travel idea that is oftentimes more accessible and more convenient for the average traveler. Take a break from work, from school, from the quotidian routines of life, and go immerse yourself in nature’s breathtaking autumnal beauty. These crunchy leaves will be gone before you know it and the last thing we want is for you to spend your winter full of regret. Get going!
