California Wine Country
Fall is harvest time in California’s wine country, making it one of the best times of year to visit the various wineries in Napa Valley. You can book a biking tour, a wine train tour, or choose to drive yourself to a handful of the over 375 tasting rooms in Napa Valley. Napa is just one option. Check out VisitCalifornia.com for even more worthwhile wine destinations throughout the state.
Santa Fe is known for the Pueblo-style architecture and abundant galleries and museums. There are more than 250 art galleries as well as historical museums and monuments around town. It’s a great destination to see the iconic Santa Fe Cathedral Park and Monument, take a walk through the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, or to experience a deep dive into the history and culture of the Southwest at El Rancho De Las Golondrinas.
Located in upstate New York, the Adirondack Mountains are the perfect fall destination to watch the leaves change colors. Enjoy the view on a canoe or kayak on the Saranac Lake Chain, go for a gondola ride at Gore Mountain, walk the nature trails at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, or take a scenic drive and snap a photo at one of the vistas.
After the heat of summer, fall is the perfect time to stop in and visit some Seattle sights or catch a Seahawks game at Lumen Field. Make sure to visit the Washington Park Arboretum's 230 acres of diverse plants where you can enjoy the vibrant fall colors. After you’ve worked up an appetite, take a walking tour of Pike’s Place Market to taste the local fare and brews.
If you’ve been looking to downsize so you have more time for travel, take a look at the Careage Independent Living communities nearby. This is your time to shine.
