Your Easy Guide to the US This Fall
The United States has so much to do and see throughout the year, but the best time to visit is almost always the fall. You have the gorgeous fall colors to enjoy, delicious foods and warm drinks to keep you cozy, and of course, plenty of festivals and activities to keep you busy throughout the season. If you want to truly enhance your fall experience this year, follow this easy guide:
National Parks to Catch the Best of Fall Colors
When it comes to fall foliage, you won’t beat the natural beauty of national parks, which is why these three destinations should be on everyone’s to-do list:
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
When you visit Grand Teton, you can expect to enjoy gorgeous views, great fall colors, and, of course, snow-capped mountain peaks. The best part about this national park is that it is close to great towns like Jackson Hole if you want to enjoy some festivals, and Yellowstone National Park if you want to expand your hiking expeditions.
Acadia National Park, Maine
Maine has adorable and instantly recognizable towns throughout, and, of course, Acadia National Park for all those adventure enthusiasts to enjoy. It has the highest point on the east coast, meaning that it is one of the first places in the United States to see the sunrise each morning. When you are done hiking this beautiful park, tour around any of the adorable towns and enjoy the fresh fish for a truly great experience.
Best Destinations to Go During Low Tourist Season
Tourist season is often dictated by when schools are out. That’s why fall is actually a great time to get out there and explore these top three cities:
Las Vegas is an adult’s playground, full of activities to do year round. Go in the fall, however, and you can enjoy statistically lower rates and more options regarding occupancies, especially in November, where you can expect approximately 1 million fewer guests (based on flight traffic data), meaning more room to explore and enjoy the city. To really make your money go far you will want to check out the vacation rentals off the main strip. You could find beautiful Spring Valley vacation rentals, for example, and enjoy a luxury property and easy and fast connections to the main strip.
Charleston is an important town in our history, and it is also an adorable town to explore. The only issue is that in the height of summer it is often swarmed with tourists. Thankfully, as the heat cools and fall sets in, families are back home, leaving you with a less crowded town that is in full throttle of fall colors for you to enjoy.
Like Charleston, Boston is a beautiful city with plenty to see and do, and an Old Town that is to die for. As Boston is home to Ivy League schools, of course, you will find its population full of young adults, meaning that it is a haven for anyone who wants to experience some cool and alternative adventures in a beautiful town.
