The changing of the leaves from verdant green to warm autumn tones has been drawing tourists to the United States for decades. As the trees stop their process of photosynthesis their chlorophyll begins to break down, and orange replaces chartreuse, ochre gold creeps over light jade, while cadmium red swallows pine green. Tourists delight in the crisp air, the smell of tart apples and the crunch of leaves beneath their boots. THIRDHOME has three properties that are perfect for exploring these fall charms.
