If the only fruit you've ever seen in AC were cherries on slot machines, you might enjoy checking out the Renault Winery Resort's October Fest on October 4, where you can make like Lucy Ricardo and stomp on grapes yourself. And to help get you in the oom-pah mood, there's even a German "Wurst" Festival, where you can get your fill of brafwurst, knockwurst, kielbasa, sauerbraten and beef stroganoff. Fallfest room packages at the resort's Tuscany House Hotel start at $139.

Book it: (877) 4-RENAULT or (877) 473-6285
