The Top Cities to Enjoy the Fall Season

Trees During Fall SeasonAs summer comes to an end, we start looking forward to the joys of fall: the cool, crisp weather, the autumn leaves, the aroma of fresh pumpkin pies, and celebrating Halloween, to name a few. Still, apartment dwellers in certain U.S. cities have the advantage of truly enjoying the beauty, fun, and festivities of fall.

Here are some of the top cities where apartment residents can enjoy fall:

Portland, Maine:

While the Northeast U.S. is known for its beautiful fall scenery, Portland is especially renowned for its fall foliage – and for making it easy for apartment dwellers to view the gorgeous scenery around them this time of year. They can take a bike tour of the trees and waterways using bike-share program Zagster or hike up Bradbury Mountain. Plus, there are local apple orchards where they can pick their own apples. October’s Harvest on the Harbor, which includes food samplings and the Maine Lobster Chef of the Year competition, is not to be missed by residents from all over the city.

Chicago, Illinois:

Between the overheated summers and bitter cold winters, fall is really the best time to visit this glorious city. It is also the best time to view the animals at the Lincoln Park Zoo and Brookfield Zoo, since they also come out for fun this time of year. Apartment residents have convenient access to several popular festivals held here every fall including the World Music Festival, the Hyde Park Jazz Festival and Riot Fest, which features some of the greatest heavy metal, punk, rock and independent musicians in the world.

Salt Lake City, Utah:

Residents who love hiking and photography have some spectacular fall views near the city, particularly along the Big or Little Cottonwood canyons. There are also a number of fun events held here in the fall including Oktoberfest, which lasts nearly two months and attracts nearly 60,000 locals and visitors. Held at the Snowbird Ski Resort, the annual festival features authentic Bavarian food, German music and yodelers, local brews, and local arts and crafts.

Nashville, Tennessee:

Along with the close proximity to the Smoky Mountains (less than 3 hours), Nashville is the place to be in the fall if you are an apartment resident who loves music. Among the music festivals held here every fall are the Independent Music Festival, the Americana Festival, and the Loveless Café’s Biscuits and Bluegrass Festival. In addition, foodies get to see cooking demos from top chefs at the Music City Food & Wine Festival. Parents who live in Nashville apartments have a lot of fun options for kids as well, including the Nashville Zoo, the Grand Ole Opry, and Opry Mills.
