Autumn is the perfect time to get away. The temperatures have cooled, but it’s still plenty warm enough to be able to spend the day outside. You can experience all of the beautiful colors the season has to offer. If you’re planning a trip for this fall, here are a few destinations to put on your list.
Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston is a city draped in history. It’s well-known for its Spanish moss-draped trees and cobblestone streets. It’s also full of innovative restaurants and contemporary art galleries. It’s ranked as the number one best city to visit in the Carolinas. Be sure to make a reservation at Magnolias to experience the authentic Southern cuisine, like the parmesan crusted flounder.
San Diego, California
San Diego is home to a beautiful coastline, a thriving nightlife scene, delicious Mexican food and much more. With warm, sunny weather throughout the fall, it’s the perfect vacation for those looking to escape the cooler temperatures. For some of the best bites in the city, be sure to visit Juniper and Ivy for “refined American food with left coast edge.”
Mackinac Island, Michigan
This island resort, located in Lake Huron, is well-known for both its fudge and fall foliage. With a happening bar scene at night and carriage rides and shopping during the day, the island has something for everyone. It’s been voted one of the best islands in the United States. Home to seven different fudge shops, stop in one to watch fudge being made daily and be sure to bring home a box for friends and family.
The Northeast is one of the best regions to visit during the fall months. Experience all the best the Northeast has to offer in Damariscotta. The area is famous for the granite cliffs surrounding it. It’s full of exciting shops and restaurants, including the classic Moody’s Diner, located on Route 1. Also, make sure to visit the Maine Coast Book Shop and Cafe to pick up some new reading material and have a cup of coffee.

It boasts a wide variety of both outdoor and indoor activities, including snowmobiling; the Jackson Hole Center of Arts, which offers year-round community events; and elk, mule deer and moose hunting.
