Fall is a great time to travel, as it’s typically a slower travel season since schools are back in session. The weather is usually calmer and temperatures are not scorching or below freezing. There are so many places to visit and things to do in the fall, especially if you are a nature lover! AurTravel has some great options for your autumn travel plans and fall getaways!
Boston: New England Beauty
Boston, Massachusetts has a wide variety of great things to do while visiting in the fall. Cruise along the Charles River or visit the historic city of Salem! If you want to really explore the city, hop on the Urban AdvenTours Fall Foliage Bike Tour of Boston. This will allow you to not only see the city, but also view the beautiful colors of the leaves changing in the autumn. Indulge in some nature at the Boston Public Gardens near Beacon Hill or visit the Museum of Fine Arts if the weather gets a little chilly!
Sedona, Arizona: Nature’s Best
Sedona, Arizona has some of the most spectacular views you could ever imagine, especially in the fall! Drive through Oak Creek Canyon for amazing sights of the leaves changing color, which occurs between late September and mid-October each year. Visit the Amara Resort & Spa to relax and rejuvenate your body, while being surrounded by some of the best views in Arizona. Hike through West Fork Oak Creek Trail or the Coconino National Forest to see the leaves change color! If you really want the outdoor adventure experience, take a tour with Pink Jeep Tours! These jeeps can hold 6 or 7 passengers and are a great family experience!
Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
Missouri is home to one of the most serene nature escapes in the United States: the Lake of the Ozarks. The lake’s state park has twelve hiking trails, many beaches to relax on, boats to rent, and the opportunity for horseback riding. The Lake of the Ozarks is a vast area, there is so much to do and see! A tourist favorite is visiting Bridal Cave, which stays at a comfortable 60°F year round. This is a great attraction no matter what the weather is like outdoors. As part of Osage tribe history, the cave got its name from a legendary tale of a Native American wedding ceremony that took place in the early 1800’s. You can reserve the historic chapel for your own ceremony, too!
Shenandoah Valley, Virginia
Shenandoah Valley in Virginia is the perfect autumn destination! There are not only many places to stay, but so many things to do! If you really want to see the fall foliage in its glory, consider traveling during the middle of October. Pick apples at Showalter’s Orchard and Greenhouse for a great family outing and memory! You can also visit the Luray Caverns, which is a US Natural Landmark. Luray Caverns has stone columns, ceilings that reach up to 10 stories high, and the clearest pools of water you have ever seen.
Autumn is a beautiful time to travel for weather and scenic views. It is often less-crowded when traveling during fall and weather is pretty calm. Being able to see foliage change colors into beautiful oranges and yellows is something taken for granted and should be enjoyed more often. If you are a nature lover, fall is the perfect time to take a hike, ride your bike, or explore a new city that is in the midst of preparing for winter!
