Fall will soon be upon us, and with that comes a lot of travel options that mesh perfectly with the cooler weather, falling leaves, and crisp clean colors.  Travel & Leisure has a roundup of America’s Best Cities for Fall Travel that includes both obvious and less obvious choices.

While summer in the southern part of the country may be too hot and humid for some, the fall provides the perfect time of year to go exploring in places like Savannah, Charleston, New Orleans, Nashville, and Washington, DC.

Austin. San Antonio, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Denver, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Portland, ME, and Honolulu flesh out the list quite nicely.

And some of those same cities made the cut in Conde Nast Traveler’s 2014 reader’s survey of the Friendliest Cities in the U.S.
