That means fewer people and hopefully cheaper rates in most places. Who wouldn’t want fewer people AND to be able to save more money?!
I have a few trips planned for the fall already. I cannot wait!
Here is my list of places you might want to visit this fall in the United States:
September and October are both GREAT months to visit national parks in the United States. It is usually on the slower side because children are back in school and because ski season isn’t in session yet.
It’s usually more affordable to visit during the fall months as well because it’s considered to be the shoulder season. You’re in between the busy summer months when families are visiting national parks and you are before the winter months when everyone seems to visit the ski areas. This means that you may be able to save a decent amount of money on your hotel stay.
Some of the national parks you may want to visit include Redwood National Park, Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Acadia National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Olympic National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and more! There are so many awesome national parks to visit.
I went to New Orleans last summer and it was extremely hot and humid. I’m going again this fall and I think it will be much better. Going in the fall’s main positive is that it will be slightly cooler.
There are a ton of things you could do here in the fall. Go to one of the numerous bars, try one of their signature drinks such as the hand grenade. Oh yeah, and don’t forget to go to Cafe Du Monde!
I have been to Las Vegas several times, and it has almost always been in the summer months. This means that it is pretty miserable to be outside there unless you are by a pool.
The fall months on the other hand are much more bearable. I went one time in September and it was amazing. The weather was great and it was slightly less busy, but it’s still Las Vegas so the streets are still pretty packed full of people.
Are you going anywhere in the fall? Tell me all about your vacation plans!
