Best Fall Destinations
While summer is the traditional season for taking vacations, many people feel that autumn is a better time to travel. The weather is cooler, the leaves are changing colors, and with the kids back in school, many top destinations are less crowded, especially on weekdays. If you have a flexible schedule that allows you to travel this time of year, consider visiting one of these hand-picked retreat destinations.
Wherever you decide to travel, get there in luxurious comfort and style by booking a charter flight with GrandView Aviation. Call us today at 800-609-8159 to learn more.
This island off Cape Cod is traditionally a summer destination, but fall is scallop and cranberry season, making this a great time to visit if you’re a foodie. Speaking of food, you’ll discover no lines at the most popular ice cream shops in town and find it easier to book reservations at the island’s busiest restaurants this time of year. The Whaling Museum and Great Point Lighthouse are unique tourist destinations you should plan to visit while in Nantucket.
Lake Placid, New York
The Adirondacks in Upstate New York is a protected area larger than Yellowstone, Everglades, Grand Canyon, and Glacier National Parks—combined! Pristine wilderness in the Lake Placid area makes this the quintessential vacation spot to soak up the fall colors. By staying in a retreat located directly on the lake, you gain easy access to boating, hiking, and mountain biking in a private, picturesque setting.
Asheville, North Carolina
This city’s proximity to the Appalachian Mountains means the fall foliage in Asheville is among the best in the nation. The most vibrant colors are visible between late October and early November, so plan your visit accordingly (a day trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway will give you the best views). If you’re a craft beer fan, consider scheduling a brewery tour of the city while you’re there.
Another location with stunning fall colors, Baltimore offers much more than just leaf-peeping opportunities. Plan to go on a haunted ghost tour, visit a farm festival, or enjoy finger-licking good barbecue. From family-friendly events to adult-geared entertainment, you’re sure to find fall activities to meet the needs of you and your travel companions.
Known best for its skiing and other winter activities, Telluride is a hidden gem when it comes to fall travel. The town is set among the breathtaking Rocky Mountains, with endless trails that provide perfect hiking conditions during the fall. No visit to Telluride would be complete without a ride on one of the town’s famous complimentary gondolas, which creates the perfect opportunity to snap social media-worthy pictures of Colorado’s fall foliage.
Looking for something a little warmer? Fall is one of the most pleasant times to visit the Bahamas because the weather is cooler and less rainy, and the summer crowds have subsided.
