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.
