Escape to Silverton, Oregon, one of the best places to visit in the fall

It’s hard to believe someone living in the Pacific Northwest would need an escape to nature when so much of the region is made up of incredible natural landscape. Still, nature calls, and glamping is the perfect way to experience the areas outside of the hipster haven of Portland.

The greenhouse-style dwelling has floor-to-ceiling windows broken up only by cedar support beams, so you can see the lush trees surrounding the place. If that’s not enough to sell you, consider the fact that there’s a hot tub inside of the house, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be booking your weekend here ASAP for the perfect, romantic getaway this fall.

Go to New York, one of the best places to visit in fall for fall foliage

If you’re glamping with friends, a trip to Woodstock, New York, could be in the cards. This historic mill—built along both Cooper Lake and Sawkill Streams in the 1800s—sleeps four and has all of the comforts of home, including a gas fireplace. From this unique rental, you can explore all the incredible fall foliage, and New York is certainly one of the best places to visit in the fall to enjoy a fall vacation taking in the stunning golds and orange colors in the trees at this time of year.

You can take a break from outdoor pursuits by exploring the thriving local cultural scene to see it for yourself. Otherwise, the mountains, waterfalls, and hikes to both will give you the taste of beautiful nature you seek.
