Enjoy Vivid Vermont Landscapes for Less
Fall is best celebrated among the changing leaves of the Northeast, and if you have some time to take a vacation, Vermont is one of the best places to take in all of the natural beauty. If you're in the market for a scenic, low-cost getaway, look no further.
Although it's popular for its skiing and snowboarding in the winter, there's plenty to do in the fall, including nature walks, festivals and apple-picking. Of course, the main attraction is the fall foliage. In a few months, the rich green leaves will become a living canvas for mother nature, painted with a vivid mixture of reds, yellows and oranges.
In fact, the colors in Vermont are so intense that many consider them to be the most vibrant in the U.S. Luckily, 80 percent of the state is forested, so there will be no shortage of breathtaking landscapes to choose from.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that hotel prices increase as the trees intensify in color. To keep your costs down, consider staying at a ski lodge. During the fall foliage season, rates at many B&Bs, inns and hotels are at their highest. Not only are ski lodges readily available, they're usually more reasonably priced. They're often equipped with kitchens, as well, which is a great option for families looking to cut costs.
So remember, you can explore the beauty of Vermont without a high-priced ski-trip. You just have to go off the beaten path.
