If scorching heat and crazy crowds are not your thing and cheap travel is, great fall getaways might be just the thing for you. Fall vacations can be just as relaxing but easier on the budget than summer getaways, especially for those who aren’t inclined to bake on a beach. Robert Frost’s My November Guest sums it up wonderfully, “My sorrow, when she’s here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.”
