Maybe the torrid days of summer found you trapped in your office, struggling to meet your deadlines. Perhaps you didn’t have time to go on a relaxing trip and can’t wait to plan the most amazing holiday in the lovely state of California. If you have a thing for the superb shades of brown, gold and red that autumn brings along and want to make up for the lost time, you can just hop in your car and decide to spend a few days in some of the most popular Californian destinations that are famous for their outstanding fall foliage.

Lake Tahoe. From the last days of September until the end of October, Lake Tahoe attracts a large number of visitors who wish to break the everyday monotony by enjoying the simplest things in life in a warm, natural and simulating environment. Lake Tahoe’s western shores will let you discover an undisturbed chromatic harmony based on the most intense shades of copper, bronze and gold displayed by maples, oaks and aspens.

Napa Valley. Fancy a glass of the finest wine produced in the U.S.? Napa Valley is well-known for its prestigious vineyards and beautiful surroundings. This is the perfect spot to relax, indulge in the very best fine wining and dining options, rent the cutest cottage, tour the vineyards and enjoy the breathtaking views.

Big Bear Lake. If you have already seen Lake Tahoe and would much rather target a new Californian destination that also encompasses a fair amount of clean surface water, beautiful color schemes, plenty of vegetation and affordable housing options, plan a trip to Big Bear Lake from mid-October until early November. During this timeframe, you will be able to make the most of friendly weather and contemplate the panoramic views offered by the popular Cougar Crest Trail. This trail can be quite challenging, especially if you’re in a poor physical condition or if you are accompanied by kids. In this situation, you may want to choose Woodland Trail, a trail that is considerably less difficult, yet it still enables hikers to have a great time while discovering the unmatched beauty of the local flora.

Do you still think that vacation rentals available in these prime locations will make you go bankrupt?  If the answer is yes, we can give you a good reason to reconsider. Cali-based “for rent” properties can make you exceed your allocated budget only if you don’t do your homework properly. You don’t have to spend up to 3,000 dollars per night on a superb ranch in Napa Valley providing maximum privacy and dozens of secluded areas to feel comfortable. As a matter of fact, for only a few hundreds of dollars per night you could get the keys to an elegant cottage with pool and fantastic views, located in the same ZIP code. Knowledge is power; therefore, if you want to admire the best fall color schemes in the most renowned Californian places, count on Apartment Hunterz to spot the most amazing deals on the local real estate market.
