Fall isn’t just for apple picking.

In fact, all nature lovers can enjoy the beauty and wonder of autumn thanks to Airbnb Experiences. The home-sharing website is offering some excellent getaways for anyone who is excited to see the fall foliage this year.

A lot of people may not realize that Airbnb isn’t just good for finding an inexpensive homestay, it also offers tons of fun activities and adventures that you can do in your own city (no room booking required). However, if you’d like to take a break from subways, sidewalks, and traffic on every corner, you can also find some nature-loving things to do all over the United States.

Of course, since it’s fall, many people are looking for an adventure in the outdoors. It’s finally cool enough to hike, but not so cold that you’ll be shivering. Plus, who doesn’t want to do a little leaf peeping while they’re hanging out with Mother Nature?

Below are just a couple of excellent Airbnb Experiences that will show you the best places to see beautiful, orange-changing trees, gorgeous waterfalls, and some of the most picturesque scenery this season.
