Published Date Author: , November 4th, 2013

FallThe Fall season is an exciting time to travel. The leaves are changing colors, the temperatures are cooling off, and everyone seems more relaxed in general. If you’re looking at taking a trip any time soon, you should consider one or more of these cities.

Savannah, Ga.

If you’re going to travel to see the leaves change, what better place to go than the South? Head down to Savannah and enjoy the historic buildings. In addition to enjoying nature, check out the historic district and enjoy a performance at the Savannah theatre. The city has many free Wi-Fi locations, so if you’re not sure what to do, be thankful that you’ve brought your Lenovo convertible laptop so you can research some ideas.

Charleston, S.C.

Charleston is a very walkable city, and in the Fall you’ll be able to take full advantage of that fact. If you happen to find yourself in Charleston on a Saturday, drop by the Charleston Farmer’s Market in Marion Square. In the French Quarter, swing by the Robert Lange Studios and enjoy the various paint styles and photographs. If you feel like listening to some music, head to the Youth Orchestra of the Lowcountry. Most of the shows are completely free, so feel free to check it out when you feel like it.

Honolulu, HI

In the Fall season, you’ll find some amazing travel deals to this island paradise. One of the best deals you can find, surprisingly, is a ticket to Honolulu. The best deals for Honolulu occur during this time of the year. It’s also humpback whale season, so in addition to whale watching, you’ll be able to take tours, laugh in the face of death by taking a volcano tour, or just relax in a hammock by the ocean.

Nashville, Tenn.

Head to the Music City to enjoy the nightlife and the Fall weather. The less humid nights allow you to enjoy your time downtown while checking out each bar and nightclub. There are many antique shops to browse in, as well as local record stores, like Grimey’s or Third Man Records. Head East for a few hours and you’ll find yourself in the Smoky Mountains, where you can watch the leaves change from a great vantage point.

Austin, TX

The best part about visiting Austin in the Fall is that it’s not nearly as hot as it is in the Summer. Austin is a well-known college town, so you’ll be able to swing by and catch the local football game. Austin is also well-known for its diverse music scene, and there are plenty of venues to listen to some great music around the city. There’s also a lot of local barbecue joints.

Miami, Fla.

Now that Florida has finally cooled off a bit, head to Miami. There’s an art show in December in the new Perez Art Museum that’s worth checking out. Stop at South Beach to shop and party the night away. If you have young ones, be sure to stop by Zoo Miami and the Seaquarium. If you’re looking for a more educational venture for them, check out the Miami Children’s Museum.

Portland, Ore.

Come relive the dream of the ’90s in Portland this Fall. Portland is beautiful in the Fall. If you visit in September, check out its annual food fest Feast. Spend some time shopping, because there are zero sales tax. There are many venues that feature local bands that you can check out. There are multiple river and winery tours that you can take. Don’t drive around; instead, rent a bike and traverse the city that way.

Montpelier, Vt.

Head to the capital of Vermont — it’s known as the go-to spot if you’re looking to watch the leaves change. Check out the multiple tours offered, pick apples at one of the many apple orchards, or just take a day to yourself and explore. If you visit Vermont’s tourism site, they have a list of drives that you can take that’ll allow you to see the best nature has to offer. The drives range anywhere from 30 miles to 210 miles, so it just depends on how far you feel like driving that day.

Fall is a great time to take a trip thanks to cheaper traveling rates. What makes it even better, though, is that the temperature is finally cooling off in cities across the nation, so you’ll actually be able to enjoy everything they have to offer. When Fall rolls around, do you have a city that you like to head to? If so, where do you go?
