With Labor Day Weekend signaling the unofficial end of summer, fall’s beautiful foliage starts to make an appearance. And due to the above-average moisture and temperatures this summer, our opportunities to leaf peep will be aplenty across the US this fall.
For those unable to squeeze in a final summer road trip, there’s still ample time to map out your great American adventure and catch the changing leaves in the many forests across the country. From off-the-grid cabins to tree-dwelling abodes, Airbnb has a swath of homes perfect for soaking in all the beauty that mother nature’s fall foliage has to offer.
