Glamping in Style: 5 Fall Foliage Trips You Need To Take This Year

When the leaves turn Instagram worthy with beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow it's time to visit these areas so you don't miss out on the dazzling scenery. Unfortunately, not all parts of the US have gorgeous colors so we’ve made a list of five fall foliage trips that you need to take so you can see, (and photograph) the picturesque surroundings for yourself. But why stop there? When people travel, booking a hotel or bed and breakfast is a pretty obvious choice, but to make the experience truly unique, check out GlampingHub.com.
Glamping Hub is an extraordinary adventure that puts glampers right in the middle of their travel destination--in style of course. When you visit their website, you can choose to stay in tree houses, caves, cabins, domes, huts, barns, and even igloos! These are much more hip than a boring hotel.
After choosing our five must visit fall towns, we’ve selected the best glamping spots to make your experience all the more unique. Below you can read about the destination and all it has to offer along with the unique accommodations to go with it.

Salem & Boston, MA

When it comes to fall scenery and events, there’s no place like Massachusetts. You’ve probably heard of the Salem witch trials that took place back in 1692. Rumor has it that Salem is haunted and the town celebrates its history and hauntings with their annual Haunted Happenings festival. Whether you enjoy psychic readings, spooky places, cemetery tours or cute witchy shops, it's all there. Salem is one of the top tourist attractions during the month of October. Plan on spending a few days there to thoroughly experience all that this quaint little town has to offer.
When outsiders think of Boston winning sports teams probably comes to mind. It’s true that Boston is home to The New England Patriots, The Red Sox, and The Celtics, but it’s also recognized for its rich culture, exquisite cuisine, museums, and fresh seafood. Beantown is famous for being the home of Aerosmith, The Dropkick Murphy’s, The Boston Ballet, and the yearly Boston Marathon. With so many things Boston is famous for you certainly won't run short on options.
