Wanderlust doesn’t stop as soon as summer ends. Although long days at the beach and summer night concerts might no longer be an option, there are plenty of incredible places to visit across the nation during fall.
New York, NY
Central Park is picturesque during the fall, with golden-colored trees lining the area. Numerous festivals and concerts are going on in the city and the lower temps make “the city that never sleeps” a bit more relaxing than usual.
There are few places more beautiful than Boston during the fall. Their autumn foliage produces some of the most vibrant colors in the northeast, and visitors can enjoy weekend events like Oktoberfest and tours at the legendary Harpoon Brewery. Make sure to go soon, because Boston winters are notoriously brutal.
Salt Lake City, UT
Salt Lake City is stunning in the fall. It’s also less populated and very quiet during the colder months, making it a great weekend getaway. One-way fares are around $150 right now, the cheapest they ever are during the year. If you go toward the end of October, you might even catch some snow and be able to ski.
While going to Denver at any time is a treat, going in October makes for a truly unique experience. Be sure to hike along the High Line Canal or rent a bike and explore the bustling town. Also, make sure not to miss the Great American Beer Festival, which features 3,500 different beers from more than 700 brewers.
