7 fall travel ideas for retired circuit queens

Burlington, Vermont

If the word Vermont makes you think of green rolling hills, patchwork farmland and quaint New England towns, you aren’t far off. But Burlington is also a modern metropolis – with a population of same-sex couples that is far above the national average. It has become a nationwide marriage destination for its combination of natural beauty and liberal social climes, the perfect combination for throwing the wedding of a lifetime.

In the fall, Burlington is a twofer. You get a bit of urban style but you also get the fall colors, and we don’t just mean pink. The huge maple trees are resplendent in red, yellow, and green. So take a drive through the countryside and spend the evening in one of the most gay-friendly towns around. If you are seeking alpine adventure, the Green Mountains are perfect for a day of hiking. The mountainous town of Stowe is home to Vermont Ski Week.
