If you are one of those couples who married over Labor Day, you're in luck. Many state fairs run through the first week of September or at least until the holiday that signals the end of summer. Not only are state fairs fun, they're very affordable for the entertainment they offer. And if you're more of a couple who want to spend your anniversary celebrating the grape harvest, September is a gorgeous time to book a room at a romantic inn and go wine tasting.

Later in September it's the beginning of fall foliage season and traditionally time for couples to embark on a romantic driving trip that includes a good amount of leaf-peeping. Regardless of where you live, if you head far enough north you'll start to see leaves of gold and orange, red and purple and you can steal a kiss in a pumpkin patch.
Cooler weather and sparser crowds make Europe a best bet for a September anniversary. If you've already visited London, Paris, Rome, and Venice, consider exploring some of the continent's other impressive cities -- Barcelona, Amsterdam, and Prague, to name a few. These days just about everyone speaks English, so you shouldn't have difficulty getting around.
For a gourmet getaway, consider the inns and hotels that belong to the Relais & Chateaux group that represents the highest standards of hospitality. Each of the properties -- which are located all over the world -- is unique and charming in its own way. They are not inexpensive. In addition to top-notch service and beautiful decor, guests can expect meals that are exceptional in both taste and presentation. It's no wonder that many couples choose a Relais & Chateaux to celebrate a honeymoon, birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion.
