Across the U.S. Fall has arrived and with it comes leaf-peeping roadtrips, great Fall family fun, Halloween and so much more!

In keeping with the season, we have some fun travel ideas for you throughout this issue!

We have a couple of Great Destinations for you in this issue. Two completely different destinations in two different parts of the world, but each are stand-outs in their own special ways: Chabil Mar, a ‘hidden gem’ luxury, boutique resort in Belize and the awe-inspiring Battleship Cove - a maritime museum and war memorial in Fall River, Massachusetts. Read about them both starting on page 22...and we’re sure you’ll agree!

For more Fall-Fun travel we have some Halloween fun! We discovered a long list of ‘haunted’ hotels. Sadly, we could not get them all in this issue, but selected some we just had to share with you! Find them on page 66. 

Foodies, we found some of the Nation’s Best Fall Food Festivals we KNOW you’ll want to read about! Find these tantalizing travel treats on page 58!

And the fun doesn’t stop there! We discovered a few of the World’s Best Halloween Festivals we thought you would definitely love to know more about! Find them on page 46.

One of the newest and fastest growing trends is a worldwide fascination with Urban Gardens and Urban Farms - with good reason. Food and travel are so closely connected that eating farm-fresh, locally-sourced foods are not just a way to eat while traveling, but also part of the fun of travel. But it is also growing in its importance for communities, restaurants, resorts...and more. Destinations Travel Magazine recently got involved with a local Urban Farm AND some amazing new aeroponic technology and...well you need to read about the result! Find the story on page 28.

Roadtripping Fall leaves is definitely high on everyone’s Fall Fun list. What could be more fun that a family road trip to leaf-peep? Well, we think a family road trip to leaf-peep AND discover some of America’s Most Beautiful Covered Bridges is even better! We have a great list of them you need to check out...starting on page 52.

For international destinations, we are featuring Albufeira! Where is it and why might you just fall in love with it ? Find out on page 86.

Love wine? We do, too! While you may be familiar with California Wine Country, you may NOT know about the Cape’s gorgeous wine region and fabulous wines. Discover it on page 94.

So much more in this issue! Don’t miss a single page!
