Halloween Travel Destinations

October is a great time of year to travel, wouldn’t you agree? I mean, the leaves are turning beautiful colors, the weather is starting to cool off, and kids are back in school which means NO MORE CROWDS!

And I’ve found a great tool to help me plan a fall foliage tour thanks to the US Forest Service. Continue reading
