Re: Where's your family fall getaway???

We have been going up to the White Mountains in NH and Killington VT for 5 years. I went upto NH as a kid all the time...We usually go Columbus Day weekend but this weekend we are going the weekend before....It is beautiful. We take a scenic train ride and see the fall foliage. We drove to Maine 2 years ago and went to the LL Bean factory. Couldn't go last year as I was almost 9 months preggo. We are going to go to Loon Mountain and go on the Gondola ride. I can't wait. Really missed it last year...Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Growing up, we went every year to Kent Falls in Kent, CT. Cute tiny park with a covered bridge and small water fall with a walking (climbing) path to go up, grassy hill for playing, picnicing. Nearby cute little town with shops. Other covered bridges and falls near by. Not far, about 2 hours. Great day trip.

I went to high school in Kent!!!! It is such a beautiful little town. I think it was actually just voted best location in the country for fall foliage!

it has the cutest little bakery in town, along with an old time toy shop.

I just got dejavou reading this! Chat Icon Chat Icon Like I think you posted the same thing when I mentioned Kent Falls years ago or something back in the wedding planning days! Chat Icon Chat Icon

We have a wedding in VA in October so that will be out "getaway". DD starts soccer this week so no other trips until the winter.

I want to go back to Ridin=Hy Ranch in the Adirondacks when there is snow. It was awesome!!

Re: Where's your family fall getaway???

all these places sound great - i am a big skier and I never thought to go to the poconos to see the foliage on the ski lifts!!!

DH is teacher and hates going away for the weekend in the fall, so I usually visit my sister in VA for the state fair - their state fair is huge, with lots of foods/animals, etc. too preggo for it this year, but the baby and I will go next year!

We have a house in Cairo (near the Catskills) we usually go ....but not this year I will be way tooooo pregnant so maybe we will go for Thanksgiving.

That is so funny, my dh's family has a house there too...
Just curious though, do you go apple/pumpkin picking there? where do you go? DH uses that house basically for a sleeping spot when he goes hunting so I'm not that familliar with it and I don't think he would have a clue on where to go for family stuff either... He gets tunnel vision during hunting season.

Every fall we go away to DH's family's house upstate in Cairo NY.

I LOVE the fall.. and especially upstate in the fall!! We do all the traditional fall festivities!!
