Depending on the area you plan to visit, your dinner plate will be full of an ever-changing rotation of nature’s bounty. This is also the perfect time of year to be on the lookout for harvest festivals—from wine in Italy to black truffles in France and Spain, pumpkins in Pennsylvania to cranberries in Massachusetts. People love to celebrate the area’s crop, and finding a harvest festival can be a great way to get to know your destination better and to mix with the locals. Many hotels will help you get in on the harvest action, offering everything from apple picking to wine tasting and grape harvesting, especially in wine country USA. 7
