With the fall equinox fast approaching, now is the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful foliage in New England. Vermont, often hailed as the maple sugar state, has an abundance of red-hued maple and sugar maple trees.  These trees cover more than three-quarters of the state and create picture-perfect autumn views. Visit these five fall destinations to celebrate and appreciate the season.

 

Start by checking the foliage forecaster on the Vermont Vacation website to ensure the best possible trip.

 

Enjoy the undeveloped stretches of Route 100, which runs north-south from Readsboro to Newport and crosses the Green Mountains. This drive is an ideal way for the busy traveler to appreciate the fall foliage.

 

Hike through Coolidge State Park in Plymouth and take in views of the Black River Valley and Green Mountains. This park is one of the largest in central Vermont and offers more than 21,000 acres of recreation space.

 

Take I-91 from White River Junction to Newport for views of the Connecticut River Valley.  While this drive is faster paced than local roads, it still offers spectacular views of the changing colors.

 

Experience the foliage in one of the state’s apple farms. The state offers a unique Apples to iPods program to encourage orchard tourism — select orchards place wooden apples in their groves and exchange them for iPods.

 

Check out the views from Mt. Philo State Park in Charlotte, and catch the fall raptor migration as the birds fly over the Champlain Valley.

 

Vermont offer many ways to enjoy the region’s beautiful foliage, visit Vermont Vacations website for a scenic driving guide and savor the season.

Among the myriad concerns the everyday traveler may have when approaching any trip, safety and security are most likely the most important, but protecting yourself from both bodily harm and petty theft can distract you from the real reason for your travel: to escape daily life and immerse yourself in another culture. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in travel accessories that can perform multiple functions, like carrying your gear while also protecting it with state-of-the-art security features.

Under $100: Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles is a sunny city with beautiful beaches. One could argue L.A. is the “New York of the West,” as the city is culturally diverse and has a strong financial and cultural influence on the country as a whole. It is also a much-sought-after destination among travelers for its beaches and the fame associated with the city.
