Autumn Getaways

autumn fall
Summer 2008 has ended - lets welcome the Fall! Not sure about you, but traveling is one of my greatest enjoyments. I love to see the color changes in landscape during a road trip.

So, if you have not used all of your vacation days during the summer, here are some travel getaway ideas for Autumnfest!
New England and New York
Several destinations get you close to the best foliage in the northeast. From either New York or Albany, head for the Adirondacks. Or from New York City, take a foliage cruise up the Hudson. From Boston, go north to the White Mountains of New Hampshire or the Green Mountains of Vermont, or go west to the Berkshires. Check local Web sites for back roads; they have less traffic and more interesting views. After “leaf-peeping,” you can enjoy gourmet restaurants, galleries, concerts and shopping in the area’s many resort towns.

The Southern Appalachians
For a slightly later fall, both Atlanta and Charlotte are just a few hours away from the magnificent foliage displays in the southern Appalachian Mountains, or fly even closer, to Asheville or Knoxville. Hike a part of the Appalachian Trail, or ride the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. Then take in a Blue Grass or folk music concert, shop for local crafts, and enjoy southern cooking and southern hospitality.

The Great Lakes
The Great Lakes region — on both the Canadian and U.S. sides — rivals New England for beautiful fall color. Fly to Minneapolis, rent a car, and spend a fall weekend exploring Prairie Home Companion country. Or fly to Ottawa or Quebec, and view the magnificent scenery in the luxury of a St. Lawrence River cruise.

Return to Summer
Would you rather go somewhere warm? In the fall, you can avoid the peak-season crowds and prices in Florida and the Caribbean, Charleston and Savannah, Mexico, Santa Fe, Las Vegas or California. Or enjoy the mild temperatures of Portland, Seattle or Vancouver.
Have money to splurge?
Kouyou in Japan
The season of Kouyou — fall foliage — is a favorite time for the Japanese to travel to the countryside or the mountains. Consider joining them for a fall foliage vacation you’ll never forget. This getaway lets you combine the urban sophistication of Tokyo and the beauty of the Japanese landscape.

One breadth in which the best of Gucci Replica belts accoutrements resemble the originals about actually is in aesthetics, breadth afterwards accepting apparent what an aboriginal Gucci bag prototype, and what a replica Gucci bag ancestor - and again accepting the two sets of accoutrements shuffled, it becomes harder to acquaint the replicas from the originals; even for the best accomplished eyes. The association of this to the being who is because opting for the Gucci Replica wallets accoutrements - but who is alert that it will be accessible to others out there that what they are accustomed is a Gucci replica bag is that such a abhorrence is abundantly mistaken; because if you accomplish a acceptable best of a Gucci bag, there will be no way of addition being 'out there' acquirements whether it is an aboriginal or a replica. Simply put, the best Gucci Replica shoes accoutrements are actually like the aboriginal Gucci accoutrements design-wise (and appropriately in artful appearance); and any fears to the adverse are absolutely mistaken.
