Where to go This fall
To me, autumn is one of the most romantic travel seasons. Crisp, cool days and nights. Bursts of red, orange and yellow. There's really nothing like it. Take in the sights of fall with these fall travel specials.
In Colebrook, Connecticut, on 23 acres of beautiful estate land sits Rock Hall, an elegant inn ripe with graceful gardens, stunning orchards and meandering meadows. Crisp, clear autumn days in the surrounding Litchfield Hills mean plenty of opportunity to explore. Couple your stay at Rock Hall with a one-hour horse-drawn carriage ride through the rolling hills for which the region is famous and enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine along the way. Afterward head back to your idyllic home-away-from-home and enjoy activities like apple picking and mixology classes.
The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park
Enjoy stunning views of one of Manhattan's most-acclaimed landmarks from your plush room at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. The Autumn in New York special is complete with accommodations, daily continental breakfast for two and a gourmet picnic basket fill with caramel apples and other treats to enjoy among Central Park's popular sights. Plus, you'll go home with a copy of Central Park, An American Masterpiece as a memento of your time in our country's first public park. Stop by the hotel's new restaurant, Auden Bistro & Bar, for locally sourced dishes that celebrate fall's bounty with seasonal ingredients from Sisters Hill Farm in New York's Duchess County.
The Lakehouse Inn & Winery
One of the best seasons to visit Cleveland is during the fall, when temperate weather conditions make it easy to explore the city's parks and nature. About 50 miles outside of downtown Cleveland is Geneva-on-the-Lake, home to The Lakehouse Inn & Winery with its luxuriously appointed eight guest rooms, on-site winery, gourmet restaurant and spa. Book the Fall Foliage package and enjoy an overnight stay in a traditional bed & breakfast room or cottage, full breakfast the following morning, bottle of Lakehouse Inn wine, cheese plate and a map of local wineries and covered bridges.
Village Green Resort & Gardens
Oregon takes its fall foliage seriously. So seriously, that it has an entire website dedicated to it along with a free hotline and a network of "leaf peepers" to send weekly updates on the best places to spot changing leaves. "Pedal for Pinot" at Village Green Resort & Gardens and explore Oregon's wine country on two wheels. You'll be treated to a romantic dinner for two at the resort, bottle of private label wine from a local winery and continental breakfast. When you're ready to explore outdoors, the resort provides you with a map of the newest scenic bikeway in Oregon. You'll pass farms, historic covered bridges and the charming town of Cottage Grove.
