Summer is winding down, which makes me very sad. But, the good news is that fall is on the way, complete with colorful leaves, crisp nights, bonfires, hot cocoa and pumpkin everything.

As it turns out, Pennsylvania has one of the most charming towns in the U.S. for a fall getaway. The news comes from BestLifeOnline.com, which scoured America, looking for the finest towns to enjoy all things autumn. They point out that fall is a sleeper hit when it comes to taking a vacation.

“Summer might be the most popular time to travel, but the fall shouldn’t be overlooked,” BestLifeOnline.com states. “There’s something special about vacationing in the autumn months when the air is pleasantly “crisp” and we can pack our jeans and sweaters. Maybe you have dreams of cozying up by the fire with your partner, having a girls’ weekend somewhere fun, or taking the kids to explore the golden fall foliage. Whatever you have in mind, the fall is a great time to seek out spots that are somewhat off the beaten path. Travel experts have plenty of suggestions for the most charming towns in the U.S. for a fall getaway. Read on to find out where they recommend you post up and embrace the seasonal scenery.”

Overall, the outlet picked just eight cities across American that are prime for enjoying fall activates and colors. The fact they only picked eight makes it even more exciting to see one Pennsylvania city on this list. Read on for the full list of the eight most charming towns in the U.S. for a fall getaway, according to BestLifeOnline.com, and find the full tally here. For the Pennsylvania spot, they do recommend to wait until the middle of October through the beginning of November to visit, since that’s when the color peak and temperatures are cooler. You’re welcome.
