Full of Football Sundays, magnificent colors, spooky adventures and cozy sweaters, autumn can be refreshing after a long, hot summer. It can also be a great time to travel, with fewer crowds and shorter lines than in the summer months, while still providing stunning vistas and so much to do.
Booking.com, the world leader in connecting travelers with more than one million incredible places to stay, has compiled a list of the best fall getaways.

This season, football fans from all over can book the ultimate game day home for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 is featured in Anne Rice’s novels and is the location of the vampire Lestat’s fictional grave.
