Fall is the best season, and I’m not here to discuss this any further. As winter (and seasonal affective disorder) lingers right around the corner, fall is also the best time to get your last bit of traveling in before the weather gets too cold to do anything except stay in bed.

Airbnb released a list of their most booked cities for the fall, and some are quite surprising. Overall the list skews way more toward the suburbs of larger cities like Denver and Los Angeles and southern cities like those in Mississippi and Louisiana. Regardless, I applaud those who are trying to get one last trip out of the year.

Wheat Ridge is a municipality located northwest of Denver’s populous downtown. Most tourists staying at an Airbnb in Wheat Ridge are probably going to be spending their days in Denver, but Wheat Ridge is a nice little suburb of 30,000 that once was home to Jolly Rancher founders Bill and Dorothy Harmsen.

The so-called Horse Capital of the World and home of the University of Kentucky is Lexington, and this southern city is located in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region. Lexington is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, which means that when the leaves start turning, the city is one of the best places to be to surround yourself with fall foliage.
