Don’t let the fall season pass you by without squeezing in some travel. Before it gets too cold to function, you want to spend as much time outdoors enjoying the crisp fall air as you can. Activities such as hiking, picnicking and road tripping peak in the fall, when the oppressive heat that makes some destinations impossible to visit in summer has finally gone away. It doesn’t hurt that the landscape completely transforms during the fall season, with gorgeous fall foliage in full bloom. You may not have an entire weekend at your disposal for a real weekend getaway or the opportunity for an overnight, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of everything fall has to offer. Whether it’s with the family, by yourself or with your romantic partner, head out on the best fall day trip in your state.
