For some, the end of summer signals a period of mourning, a defeated resignation to the long, dark approach of winter. We think that’s crazy talk—and we’re not the only ones. Sherman’s Travel extols the crisp autumn delights of its Top 10 Fall Destinations; Priceline has unveiled a slew of hotel deals specifically for football season; and the town of Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, celebrates its grape harvest, equestrian renown, and flamenco culture with the annual Jerez Autumn Festival. Follow their lead and find your own route to appreciating the onset of autumn with online fall foliage maps, email notifications, and even cell phone alerts from several New England tourism boards, all created to keep tourists abreast of the latest in the seasonal color calendar. As for summer? Out of sight, out of mind.
