Four Reasons to Take a Road Trip This Fall

If you didn’t get a chance to take a big family vacation this summer, and now you’re already busy at work or wrapped up in the back-to-school routine, don’t worry. There are plenty of excuses to pack up the car and head out on a fun road trip during the fall!

If simply getting away isn’t enough of a reason, here are a few ideas from Auto Glass Fitters, the leading providers of mobile windshield repair in Morris County, NJ, and throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Leaf Peeping

Fall on the East Coast is simply breathtaking, with the trees from Northern Virginia up to Maine turning gorgeous shades of red, orange and yellow. While you can certainly enjoy these colors in your own yard, there’s something freeing about steering your car down a tree-lined road under a canopy of color, breathing crisp fall air through an open window. 

Whether it’s a one-day trip or a long weekend, leaf peeping excursions are never complete without stopping to sample local food and beverages along the way. Homemade pumpkin muffins and fresh apple cider, anyone?

Pumpkin/Apple Picking

If you live in a more urban area, the opportunities to visit a pumpkin patch or apple orchard might not be as plentiful as in the suburbs or countryside — a perfect reason to take a road trip! Many local farms offer pumpkin and apple picking, hayrides, corn mazes, bonfires, haunted houses and other fun attractions to make it fun for the entire family.  

Renaissance Fairs

If you enjoy history, nothing beats a Renaissance Fair, and many areas hold their annual festivals during the later summer and fall months. A quick online search for a fair near you can be the start of an unforgettable family road trip.

Football!

Whether you’re a die-hard or a casual sports fan, the atmosphere surrounding a football game is second to none, and every family should experience it. If there’s a major college, or even a smaller college, in your area, look up the schedule and plan a day or weekend trip around a Saturday at the stadium. If you’re more of a professional football fan, make it a three-day weekend so you can explore the city after gameday on Sunday.

If you encounter any trouble out on the roads, such as debris flying up and causing a crack or chip in your windshield, don’t risk further damage by waiting to get it repaired!
