Four Apps To Help Plan Your Fall Weekend Getaway

Four Apps To Help Plan Your Fall Weekend GetawayThe 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.

  • I spent the past three months traveling around Europe and I planned all of two weeks of my trip before I left. To say that I was traveling last minute and without concrete plans is an understatement. While last minute and spontaneous travel can be exciting, it can also be a budget’s worst nightmare. While I had to fork over a considerable amount more of my budget due to my lack of advanced planning, I did learn a few ways to survive the costs of last minute travel....read more

  • France’s culinary culture is incredibly rich and varied. One of the things I enjoy most when I visit France is dining out pretty much any chance I can get. However, enjoying a meal in a French restaurant comes with a set of social norms that many Americans are not used to (and most don’t take the time to learn). Set yourself apart from the other American tourists and impress your serveur/serveuse with your knowledge of étiquette française. These three phrases are easy to master and will go a long way toward improving your dining experience....read more
