Fall is often a favorite time of the year. The heat of summer fades to comfortable and cozy, perfect for cuddling. Depending on where you are, there can be spectacular color displays as Mother Nature sprays orange, red, and yellow on the leaves before they fall. A cup of tea, coffee, or whisky to warm you, leaf peeping, long walks and a fireplace is what makes fall magical, and brings out romance at its best.
In this article, Travel Awaits recommends eight romantic destinations for couples looking to getaway this fall. Coming in at number two is the historic Jekyll Island Club Resort. A cherished member of Historic Hotels of America since 1994, the hotel has a long and luxurious history, drawing America's most prominent families including the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, the Astors, and the Morgans for over a century.
Located on Jekyll Island, part of the Golden Isles, the resort is a popular yet intimate vacation destination with miles of outdoor amenities, including extensive biking and hiking trails, oceanfront nature escapes, horse-drawn carriage tours and several well-appointed public golf courses. Most recently, this romantic beachfront resort was purchased by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, a publicly traded real estate investment trust operating in luxury resort and urban getaway markets.
