The crisp crunch of fall leaves on the ground has a certain ring to it. Usually for those with itchy travel feet, it means that it’s time to hop in the car on Friday and hit the road for a fall weekend getaway. To make the fall weekend getaway a success, you will need the basic necessities: quaint bed and breakfasts, haunted attractions and a few bites of farmers markets. Aside from leaf peeping apps, here are a few apps to help you plan the quintessential fall weekend trip.
For Fall Sleeps, InnTouch Bed and Breakfast Locator
The fall weekend away isn’t complete until you find that bed and breakfast with cozy fireplaces and homey décor. The American Historic Inns has an app for that with InnTouch Bed and Breakfast Locator. You can find thousands of B&Bs and boutique inns through the app. It will also tell you which properties are near you. Photographs are also provided so that you can see if the inn up the road is just right for a fall weekend away.
For Ghostly Attractions, Ghost Hunters Haunted House Finder and Ghost Tour App
If you are looking to go on a fall weekend away with a little bit of a Halloween flare, you can download the Ghost Hunters Haunted House Finder. Inspired by the television show of the same name, the app boasts over 100 haunted locations in its system, all of which are in the United States. Travelers can find hotels, restaurants, museums and tourist attractions that the real ghost hunters have already checked out for spooks.
The Ghost Tour app is very similar to the Ghost Hunters Haunted House Finder app, but it much more user driven. The app will tell you what haunted locations are near you by using GPS technology. These may be haunted mansions, cemeteries and old prisons. Users of the app have uploaded many of these locations. Under this system, travelers might be able to find more locations near them for some goose-bumps as users are constantly adding to the app. Another difference between the Ghost Hunters app is that the Ghost Tour app features locations throughout the United States and Canada.
For Farmers Markets, Fresh Food Finder
Nothing says a fall weekend away like wandering through pumpkin patches and farmers markets. Even if you aren’t a local, you can find the farmers markets at your destination by using the Fresh Food Finder app. The app locates famers markets near you. Schedules are also provided so you don’t snooze on the lone market in the area. The app makes it easy to navigate to the closest markets and locally grown food spots.
