During the summer months, it seems that everyone is planning at least one family vacation. Then, during the cold winter months, people focus on booking a getaway to those warm, tropical regions where the sun is always shining. But the fall is a travel season that is often overlooked and under-appreciated. 

If you want to plan a fall family vacation to take advantage of cheaper rates and smaller crowds, then these are the best places to go for an adventure:

The Pisgah National Forest

Located near Asheville, North Carolina, the Pisgah National Forest is a breathtaking sight during the fall. The trees all turn shades of red and gold, and the summer crowds that define this popular tourist destination all but dissipate. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a particularly stunning drive, and there are plenty of waterfalls to discover within the forest as well.

Lake Mohave

Lake Mohave is a reservoir located off of the Colorado River, but it’s often heralded as the best-kept secret in Nevada. This lake is quieter than other reservoirs nearby, such as Lake Mead, and it’s especially peaceful during the fall. To enjoy the privacy and seclusion of Lake Mohave, consider booking a houseboat for the week. Cottonwood Cove Resort and Marina offers houseboat rentals for travel parties of all sizes. When you stay on a houseboat, you get to enjoy waterfront views and unparalleled lake access throughout your entire fall family vacation.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Anyone craving adventure who wants to avoid the crowds should head to Jackson Hole during the fall. Not only are the summer tourists gone for the year, but the animals who call this place home are actively working to prepare for their long winter’s nap. The fall colors are brilliant and the weather is nearly perfect, which is ideal for those who like hiking the trails nearby.

During the fall, the weather is still comfortable and nature is showing off its finest display of colors. The wildlife in the region is active and preparing for winter, so there’s plenty of opportunities to spot these animals in their natural habitats. It’s one of the best times to escape your regularly scheduled lifestyle and immerse yourself in the beauty of the world around you.
