18 Sep Why Fall Travel is the Best Travel
There’s a change in the air this time of year. Everyone seems to be relinquishing the summer vibe for a more motivated mindset, as though that vacation state of mind was just the ticket for ensure a productive autumn. And while this season is best known for back to school, shorter days and pumpkin spiced everything, it’s also one the best time to travel.
Being based in South Florida, we carry the reputation of being “perma-vacationers” with pride, rarely being more than 20 minutes from a beach, and boasting our best tans during the months when most are covered with layers upon layers of clothing. But, personally, I do revel in the chance to break out my long sleeves and closed toe shoes. I love wandering city streets with a chill in the air, and the sight of leaves changing instead of a year-round shade of green.
But perhaps the best reason to travel during the fall lies in this one concept: shoulder season. Are you familiar with the term? If not, I’ll let you in on a little secret – shoulder season refers to off-peak travel, meaning not during summer or the holidays, when destinations are less crowded, and fares can be cheaper. Much cheaper.
So now that you have a reason to travel more (as if you needed one… ), where to go? I have plenty of my own fall favorites… Paris and London, always. The South to catch an SEC college football game. Anywhere there’s a flight deal.
To make things easier for you, I’ve checked my favorite trusted travel sites for ideas on where they recommend for the best fall fall vacations.
