10 perfect fall weekend getaways for the whole family

10 perfect fall weekend getaways for the whole family

Colorful foliage, cooler temperatures, pumpkin everything—what’s not to love about fall? It’s something of a Goldilocks time of year in most parts of the U.S., because it’s not too hot, not too cold, and an ideal time to travel. Unfortunately, it’s also back-to-school time for kids, which makes planning a full-fledged fall vacation a real challenge. The solution? Fall weekend getaways, especially if you can make it a three-day weekend to squeeze in a little extra fun.

Three days is more than enough time to take a picturesque hike, pick apples, sip a hot beverage, tell spooky Halloween stories, and do all the other quintessential fall weekend escape activities. And there are so many great places in the U.S. where you can enjoy just that kind of autumnal experience, including many within driving distance of major metropolitan areas around the country. Of course, you can use that extra weekend getaway day to hop on a quick flight, too, which really does open up the whole country for a three-day fall weekend.
