Fall foliage colors are coming!

Destinations

Most of my childhood was spent in the northeastern US, until my family moved to Florida when I turned 16. Growing up in Florida, there was not much of any change between the seasons and I really miss seeing the trees change in the fall. These fall foliage trips are a great way to get out and see some awesome fall colors, and what better way to do it than in an RV.
