Bask in the bounty of the fall season.

There's nothing that quite compares to the sights and sweetness of harvest time. The crisp air, the variety of seasonal delights for the palette and the full spectrum of fall scenery to delight the eyes. Consider this curated collection of autumn destinations for your pleasure.

An epic event forecast.

A bevy of fall festive feels are just a day's drive with “22 Best Fall Harvest Festivals and Events Across America,” courtesy of O, The Oprah Magazine. A quick scan of this colorful slideshow will be sure to reveal one or more happenings to inspire your travels, right up through November. Remember to call or check prior for any CV-19 restrictions and celebrate safely.

Overnight at the pinnacle of harvest.

While you can find refreshing rest almost anywhere in an American Coach, we recommend a few choice spots to sample the season with an unrivaled panaché. As a Harvest Hosts member, your annual fee unlocks access to exclusive free overnight opportunities at select wineries, orchards, farms and other attractions. Search and sample even more seasonal destinations via KOA or The Dyrt.

Made for each other.

The perfect pairing makes everything more enjoyable…like you and your American Coach. Likewise, Wine Enthusiast magazine offers their choices of perfect wine pairings for apples and cheese, and we think they're divine. Pack your favorite wine or let a local winery set the scene for your perfect wine & cheese afternoon delight. When you've found your favorites, stock up for a winter's respite with warm memories.

Arrive early. Enjoy leisurely. Leave gracefully.

When the location is right, everything else falls into place. When arriving at a planned destination, choose your parking location for maximum enjoyment. Find your spot in the field, fruit orchard or fall festival before the crowds and the heat of the day, grab a shady spot and await opening hours in air-conditioned (or heated) comfort. At the end of the day, relax and wait out the exiting crowds with a book, a shower or a nap until the coast is clear. In an American Coach, it's up to you to perfect the art of leisure.

Be ready for every turn of the weather.

Temperatures and conditions can vary widely this time of year. Dressing in layers goes hand in hand for you and your motorcoach. Make sure to take advantage of the generous storage space in your coach with blankets, jacket, outdoor heaters and other accessories to keep the cold at bay during your autumn adventures.
