It’s the official start of fall and the harbinger of shorter days, making it one of the best times of year to go outside. One day I’m going to do one of these road trips to see all the beautiful fall sights!
Hipcamp —a startup that creates new places to stay in nature by unlocking access to beautiful private lands such as nature preserves, farms, and ranches. They’ve put together an interactive fall foliage map showing you a week by week tracking of where to see the prettiest fall colors AND where you can camp or stay along the way!
HipCamp has also hand-picked a few unique nature stays in America’s top 5 leaf-viewing regions:
