We may be sinking into hot summer days spent lazily lounging on beaches and in backyards, but autumn (and autumn travel!) will soon be upon us. The morning air will slowly turn crisp and biting. The leaves will change to vibrant shades of red and gold. Football fans will cheer (or boo!) at their televisions while indulging in slow-cooked meals. Pumpkin spice fans will line up at their local coffee shops for seasonal brews.
For many people, fall is the best time of year.
In many destinations around the world, it is the best time of the year. Menus are spruced up with a hearty selection of homemade meals and the most robust wines. The landscape views are more astounding than in any other season. Temperatures are often quite comfortable for sightseeing.
If you yearn for crisp air, crunchy leaves underfoot, and dazzling displays of nature at its best, plan your getaway to one of these destinations for fall colors and fun!
#1 Aspen, CO
Aspen draws skiers and snowboarders to its snowy peaks in the winter, but it’s also one of the USA’s most beautiful destinations for fall colors. With fewer tourists, reduced rates for lodging, and awe-inspiring pops of color against the blue sky and snow-capped mountains, this mountain city is worthy of an autumn visit. Luxury hotels, scenic drives, and inspired dining await.
#2 Taos, NM
Taos is an artist’s haven in northern New Mexico, welcoming visitors with its thriving music scene, delicious local cuisine, and world-class skiing in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Cozy, boutique accommodations abound, allowing you to rest up before or after driving The Enchanted Circle Byway or The High Road to Taos from Santa Fe, while small local eateries will refuel you with huevos rancheros, enchiladas, and a variety of chile sauces.
#3 Cape May, NJ
Cape May, New Jersey has long been associated with the bustle of summer tourism, but when crowds return home and the temperature cools, fall provides a delightful backdrop for a new season of fun. Guided trolley tours give visitors a glimpse into the city’s maritime and cultural history, local winery and brewery tours help quench your thirst, and ghost and mystery tours evoke the spooky spirit of the season.
Although you might be focused on fun in the sun, it is also time to make autumn travel arrangements. Whether you prefer spooky fall frights or scenic fall sights, let’s make a date to chat about your vacation!
