Fall travel ideas for the family

Taking a vacation is something that everyone enjoys. A vacation is a good way of relaxing and recharging the batteries. Whether you have children and want a fun-filled family holiday, or you want a romantic break for two to rekindle the romance in your relationship, America is a great place to take a vacation.

A fall vacation can not only be a refreshing break, but it may also save you money. Depending on where you go and what you want to see, the fall can be cheaper than the summer.

America is a large country, and with so many states to choose from, you can have a beach holiday, a skiing holiday, or a holiday hiking through the woods. The US has some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world.

Alabama may be well known for its sunny beaches, but if wild water is more your style, then the state boasts some fantastic white water in the Little River Canyon National Preserve. The white water here will challenge even the most experienced rafter or kayaker. However, if you do not fancy braving the waters, the scenery is also fantastic.

Alaska is one of the world’s last great wildernesses, and there is a stunning range of wildlife, from orcas to bears to moose. The state also boasts a great range of outdoor activities, including kayaking, whale watching, cruising, and trekking. In the fall, Alaska is a good destination for both autumn color and the aurora borealis.

Fall is a time when the trees change color, creating a dazzling array of beautiful hues. Aspen in Colorado is the place to visit when the leaves on the trees turn a rich yellow color. The golden tones of the trees make a beautiful contrast to the craggy mountain peaks and evergreens. The season is short; mid-September is the best time to go, and by the first week of October, it is largely over.

The Grand Canyon is one of the world’s great natural wonders. The Grand Canyon stretches for 277 miles and is 18 miles wide and one mile deep. Sculpted erosion and a palette of geological colors make for some breathtaking views. Visit in the fall and you will find that the crowds are thinner and the weather is slightly cooler, which is perfect for hiking.

Vacationing in the fall can mean that hotel prices are cheaper. If you want to plan a romantic getaway or a luxury break, then check out hotels such as Mohonk Mountain House. Situated just 90 miles north of New York, the hotel is a National Historic Landmark. The resort is located on cliffs above a beautiful mountain lake and offers its guests a variety of facilities and activities, including an award-winning spa, hiking, golf, and cycling. The hotel would make a great base for exploring the Hudson Valley and surrounding area.

If you want to have a great holiday in the fall, whether it is a family holiday or a romantic break for two, a relaxing holiday, or an activity-packed holiday, it pays to plan ahead. Do some research online to choose your destination and look out for any deals on hotels or attractions in the area you want to visit.

  1. I’d love to visit the Grand Canyon. I’d def. want to make that a family trip though. i think my kids would love it.

  2. Fall is definitely an awesome time to travel. I remember one trip up to northern Alabama in November and the turning leaves were just breathtaking! And my favorite time to visit the beach is in late November or early December: it’s deserted so you have great views and just the sound of the surf around.

  3. Love this! We don’t really tavel..I have always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon. We see it in movies all the time so I’ve always talked about eventually getting there. Still hoping to!

  4. they all sound alike great suggestions, I am bookmarking this post for when we eventually get over to America. My hubby has been so many times but i never have and it’s on my list of places to go so this post is super helpful. Thanks for sharing.

  5. There are so many places that looks so much more beautiful in the fall. I love the places you mentioned, and although I haven’t gone to all of them, I bet they are amazing.

  6. My hubby has been to the Grand Canyon when he was young. I have never seen it, but we do plan on traveling and visiting sometime soon. Right now, our hands are full with making a living to send our two boys through college.

  7. Fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of year and seeing the changing seasons across the country is such a fun idea. Would love to head to New England next month but there is too much to do here in Chicago (at least it’s still beautiful!).

  8. I went to the Grand Canyon ages ago – long before I ever had kids. I would love to bring them there someday for sure.
