Fall City #1: Charlotte, North Carolina

There’s no better autumn experience than watching the leaves turn, and there are very few places better to witness the seas of red, gold, and orange than Charlotte, North Carolina. When you are not busy marveling at nature’s beauty, take in a football game at Bank of America Stadium. Afterwards, stop by the Ace Boogie food truck and grab a bite before heading back to your terrific pad, whether it’s your apartment or a short-term Airbnb.

Fall City #2: Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati may not be the first place that pops into your mind when you think about great cities for autumn, however, we think the Queen City may surprise you. WalletHub recently crowned this city as the “top choice in the nation for Oktoberfest celebrations.” In addition, The Dent Schoolhouse gets rave reviews each and every year for being one of the best haunted houses in the nation. Not to mention, apartments in Cincinnati rent at some of the lowest rates in the U.S.

Fall City #3: Portland, Oregon

Portland is a foodie’s paradise. It is no wonder that people are flocking to this jewel of the west coast. Autumn temperatures are mild and the variety of outdoor activities is practically endless. Whale watching from Cape Lookout or crabbing in Tillamook are just two of the most notable autumn past times, according to Portland’s locals. And at night, you can leave your apartment and dance the night away, or just grab a quiet drink at one of the numerous craft brew hot spots.

Fall City #4: Albuquerque, New Mexico

Spectacular does not even begin to describe the great apartment offerings and great events that abound in Albuquerque each autumn. The pinnacle of these events comes at the end of October at the annual International Balloon Fiesta where over 500 hot air balloons take flight. If you want to spend your night away from it all and staring at the stars, the Turquoise Trail is a short drive from most major apartment complexes in Albuquerque and will give you an unspoiled glimpse at an enchanting, desert sky.

Fall City #5: Tampa, Florida

Not everyone is excited for cooler temperatures and changing seasons. Those who prefer an autumn filled with fun in the sun can enjoy Tampa’s miles of beaches. With one of the most sought after apartment markets in the country, you can be sure that your apartment will make your out-of-state friends green with envy. All of this, along with being home to the one of the top five haunted houses in the U.S. (Busch Garden’s Howl-O-Scream) and Oktoberfest celebrations (in Waterfront Park) mean people are falling in love with everything Tampa has to offer.
