With fall just around the corner, now is the perfect time to plan a fall getaway trip. Fall is a great time for a vacation, offering smaller crowds at the airports and on the road.

Lately, small town traveling has been growing in popularity. For some travelers, it's the pleasurable feeling of nostalgia; for others, it's simply the convenience of encountering fewer tourists.

Here are some great small towns to explore.
