Fall is quickly approaching, and what better way to celebrate such a beautiful season than with a road trip? Every week, we’re going to be bringing you content to fuel your Fall Road Trip Inspiration! Travel & Leisure’s article on the subject (which can be found here) details the routes of fourteen different road trips to see the country’s best fall foliage.
To kick off this series, we've picked the Top 3 Fall Road Trips to take this year! Check it out below:
Blue Ridge Mountains
While most people think of New England when picturing fall foliage, the North is not the only region in the US that boasts beautiful autumn scenery. The South has plenty of magnificent colors in the fall, and a great place to see them is in the Blue Ridge Mountains! There are several ways to explore the Blue Ridge, whether that be visiting quaint towns in Georgia, following the historic Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Virginia, or taking a nice, scenic hike in South Carolina.
A drive along the California coast truly makes for the trip of a lifetime! While a pretty sight in the summer, it is truly breathtaking in the fall. See famous cities such as San Diego and Los Angeles, visit beautiful wineries and historic sites, and take in the west coast in all its glory. There’s definitely a reason why Californians believe that “the west coast is the best coast!” (You can check out an Good News Travel itinerary here.)
Gulf of Mexico
Beat the humid, summer heat by driving along the gulf in the fall! There are so many different ways to see the gulf, but any way you pick to do it is sure to please. This trip is especially great for nature-lovers. From Florida to Mississippi, visitors are able to witness one of the most delicate and unique ecosystems in the nation, and the southern cuisine and culture along the way is definitely a plus!
