Moisture, temperature and sunlight exposure all impact the brilliance of fall foliage. And According to CBS News, the drought that gripped much of the country could be to blame for less brilliant colors. But none of these things change the fact that you can find great travel deals across the country during this colorful time of year.
North Carolina Mountains Recent clouds and rain have delayed the color change in the North Carolina mountains, which means visitors have more time to book itineraries. Make plans to stay at the Highland Lake Inn where visitors who reserve any week night in October can save 20-percent off their stay.
Since drought conditions weren’t quite as bad in the northeast, experts say fall color here will be just as brilliant as years past. Book the New England Fall Leaf Vacation package at Sturbridge Host Hotel & Conference Center to experience the best of it. For $158 a night you’ll receive a $15 orchard voucher, breakfast for two and top notch accommodations.
California Wine Country
California is another beautiful fall destination. The Vintners Inn in Sonoma County is welcoming guests with a Harvest Getaway package available through the end of October. For $580 Sunday through Thursday travelers score two nights in a deluxe king fireplace room, a bottle of wine, a $100 dining certificate and turn-down service that includes fresh baked cookies.
Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
Since summer may be the most popular time of year for the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, hotels are willing to drop prices in the fall in order to attract visitors. At the Quail’s Nest Inn and Suites, visitors can stay three nights for the price of two. The deal is valid from October 14 through November 29.
Orbitz Hotel Sale
Leaf it all behind with the help of the Orbitz fall hotel sale. Simply enter your destination and dates, and then look for the sale icon to find the best deals. You can save up to 40-percent on thousands of hotels in ideal locations for your fall foliage getaway.
