Let's face it; traveling on a limitless budget isn't something everyone can do. But, that doesn't mean you can't go on a vacation. Of course, you'll just have to go vacationing with a limited budget.

Traveling on a budget becomes easier when you plan a weekend getaway. Fall weekends are the perfect time to relax and have fun with your family. Even better, as kids go back to school, you can enjoy a perfect romantic fall weekend getaway with your spouse.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out these places where you can enjoy a romantic, fall weekend getaway:
