While summer is the most popular time to take a trip with the family, there are some top family vacations that are more enjoyable once the cool weather arrives. Some ideas for family vacations are not even possible until the fall season. To bring a little excitement into your family’s life before the holidays hit, consider these two ideas for fun family vacations in the southeastern United States.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
This national park receives more visitors every year than any other national park in the country. The natural beauty is stunning, and the diverse colors of fall are simply breathtaking. In addition to the spectacular color show that awaits you with a fall visit to the Great Smoky Mountains, you can also enjoy fishing, camping, hiking and the chance to shop in America’s greatest arts and crafts community without scorching summer temperatures. All things considered, fall is the best time for the whole family to visit the Great Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
College Football Road Trips
The NCAA football season is in full swing, and now is the time to see your favorite teams battle it out on the gridiron. Even if they’re not playing in your neighborhood, you can go on one of the top family vacations you’ve ever had visiting stadiums in the region that feature your favorite Southeastern Conference teams. Make it a weekend family road trip to see the big game of your choice.
