Autumn’s arrival is now official and the changing of the seasons is already in full swing in many states. As short sleeve shirts and sandals give way to sweaters and scarves, apartment dwellers across the nation take advantage of the many benefits of the fall season. Power bills are reduced, thanks to reduced air conditioning. More time is spent outdoors, enjoying the crisp air. And, for the apartment residents of many cities, there are plenty of things that make autumn an even more magical time of year.
Summer’s Hold Releases the Southeast
Weeks and months of oppressive heat and humidity have been plaguing the Southern states since May. But now, the days are beginning to cool off a bit and apartment residents are leaving the confines of their air-conditioned homes to venture outside. In Tampa Bay, Guavaween (the annual Latin-flavored Halloween celebration) draws the masses to the Sunshine State. In New Orleans, Voodoo Fest fills the Big Easy with the sounds of dozens of musical acts. And in Knoxville, the bright colors of changing leaves draw thousands to the Smokey Mountains.
Fall in the Northeast is All about Cool
Knowing that winter’s icy grip will be arriving soon, apartment residents in the Northeast are flocking outdoors to enjoy a variety of seasonal activities. All over New England, people are mixing the taste of great food with the beauty of the autumn leaves. In Cape Cod, people flock to the Wellfleet Oyster Festival while further up the coast in Portland, over 5,000 people will show up for Harvest on the Harbor. New Yorkers dominate the crowd at the annual Apple Harvest Festival in Ithaca at the start of each October, where they take a bite out of a different kind of Big Apple.
In The Southwest, Autumn Brings New Adventures
Most people do not think of the Western U.S. as a premier place to live to enjoy fall. But those people are missing out on great events like the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta, which has helped Santa Fe gain attention as one of the best small-town culinary destinations in America. Of course, Denver’s apartment dwellers look forward to their city’s annual Zombie Crawl. But by far the Western city that loves the return of fall the most is Austin. Because that means the return of Austin City Limits, which many consider the premier music festival in the U.S.
Northwesterners Say They Have the Most Fall Fun
Not to be outdone, the US West Coast brings their “A” game to the enjoyment of fall. On the Oregon coast, Chowder, Blues, & Brews is a hot ticket for apartment residents in the northwestern US. Californians looking to escape the burdens of the long-lasting drought are excited to attend the Santa Barbara Harbor & Seafood Festival. But fall also drives some chills. which are especially felt by people attending the haunted house at the Georgetown Morgue, which has become one of the best Halloween attractions in the U.S.
