The kids are back in school, so that means it’s the perfect time to grab your best gals for a girls’ getaway or embark on a romantic weekend with your lover in Boston. The charming destination offers colorful leaves during the fall and plenty of activities for every type of traveler.


North Carolina

The state parks offering stunning mountain views make North Carolina the perfect destination for fall travel. Asheville is one of North Carolina’s more popular destinations during the fall. Explore more of the state and scenery with a road trip along Blue Ridge Parkway.


New Mexico

For a warmer destination within the United States, Santa Fe is a great destination for couples, friends and solo travelers. Guests will find cozy hotels and plenty of cultural activities like art and history museums.



With the U.S. dollar currently equal to the euro, this might be the perfect time to book that dream trip to Ireland. Since it’s a smaller country, it’s easier to travel from coast to coast. Don’t forget to stop in Dublin for a night out on the town and delicious brews from a local pub.



Kelly recommends one of her favorite sports, Quebec City, for travelers looking to view fall leaves and take it slow while enjoying local parks and delicious restaurants.


All these fall destinations are featured with available hotels, activities and more at a discounted rate for members of the ColleenKellyTravelClub.com. Basic memberships to the travel booking platform are free to all members. A premium membership is $9.95/month and can help families save up to 60 percent on certain travel.
