Many people are under the impression that vacations are purely for the summer months, spring break, or Christmas vacation. As passionate travelers, we couldn’t disagree more! We have put together a portfolio of homes across the globe, some in which accentuate the season of fall best of all.
October is one of the most beautiful months of the year because in the Northern Hemisphere it marks the beginning of fall. Across the nation, leaves begin to change colors, expressing shades of green to yellow to brown and eventually making their journey off the tree and onto the landscape. Let this season of change inspire you with 2 destinations where you can experience nature in the most magnificent way.
Named after the tree that populates the area, Aspen is truly a sight to see in October. When the slopes aren’t officially open for skiing and snowboarding, Aspen is a quaint, mountain community with a small-town feel. Although winter skiing is the most popular attraction in Aspen, the amount of bike trails, hiking trails, eateries and small boutiques make Aspen the perfect destination for the fall season.
It is impossible to properly describe the color that radiates off the mountainsides when the leaves of the Aspen trees begin to change. You could “google” it to see the beauty for yourself, or you could visit Aspen in person, which we highly recommend you add to your travel bucket list. With a surprising lack of tourists in October, Aspen is the ultimate Rocky Mountain getaway to let nature’s bounty refresh and rejuvenate your spirit. Make a Time & Place luxury vacation rental your home base while you find the adventures that await you in this alpine paradise.
