Embrace the beautiful fall scenery, and take a look at the best fall trip destinations we picked for you.
Upstate New York
Are you in the search for a dreamy alternative to urban life but don’t want to go completely all-natural? Then visit Hudson, New York, one of the most popular fall trip destinations of the year. This beautiful semirural area is packed with stylish hotels, bright art spaces, and classy restaurants, ready for visitors looking for the best fall retreat.
If you walk down Warren Street, the main shopping corridor of Hudson, you will certainly encounter several indie actresses, tons of vintage jewelry stores, artisanal bakeries, and cozy restaurants that are closer to the farms from which they source their ingredients.
Why go on fall: Now that the weather has cooled down, getting to know the Hudson Valley becomes a completely invigorating experience. Filled with art museums and galleries with works from both emerging and established artists, Upstate New York is the best place to spend a romantic fall weekend.
Montreal is a romantic multifaceted city located in the French-speaking province of Quebec. This city is full of life and it represents the melding of the Old and New Worlds, with its 18th-century structures coexisting with a 21st-century skyline.
If you’re looking for trendy fusion restaurants, world-class museums, historic cathedrals, exciting marketplaces and traditional French cafes, then Montreal is the place for you. Similarly, Montreal is known for its bustling nightlife and beautiful natural landscapes, perfect for foliage sighting. As a plus, Montreal is a very walkable city and the public transportation is convenient and inexpensive.
Why go on fall: Autumn in Montreal is a time of festivals and cool temperatures. Also, this season is when the hotel vacancies are at their peak.
Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone National Park offers dramatic beautiful peaks and immaculate lakes, and is the ultimate outdoor enthusiast's getaway. Yellowstone is filled with an extraordinary unspoiled natural beauty. Its forests and volatile geysers will surely seduce you, and if you’re a fan of the wildlife, you might encounter the local buffalos, elks and sometimes even grizzlies.
Why go on fall: Autumn is the best time to visit Yellowstone not only because you get to watch its beautiful transition from summer to fall, but because this season tends to attract fewer tourists (again, due to the temperatures). That means you get to stroll around the park without interruptions!
