Love It and Leaf It
Fall is a wonderful time to squeeze in a weekend getaway that doesn't have to cost a fortune. With insight from travel industry leaders at GoSeek, Travelzoo, and more, as well as our own research, we found enough appealing places across the country that there's likely to be one within driving distance. Some destinations are romantic and some are family-oriented, but all offer a welcome break before the onset of winter, with low prices as of late August.
(Don't forget to check sites like Hotels.com, Booking.com, and even Tripadvisor for deals on lodging. Or consider a cheap, private rental from Airbnb or Vrbo.)
