Top 5 Reasons to Travel in the Fall


There can never be enough reasons to travel, especially when it comes to the fall season. This time of year has a lot to offer travelers in addition to the pumpkin-spiced flavors that most of us crave as soon as September hits. Here’s a list of our top five reasons why the fall is our favorite season to travel.



This time of year has the perfect combination of mild and comfy weather. It is the best time for exploring, hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities. Around this time, the breeze gets slightly chilly but nothing that a sweater can’t fix. This season is definitely better than summer, where you might get dehydrated by any outdoor activity, and winter, where you need to carry around bulky jackets everywhere you go.

Less Crowded


Fall months are less crowded than the busy summer season as children have gone back to school and parents have returned to work. Fewer crowds mean less waiting in lines, cheaper flights, less tourists, and less need for reservations.



The fall season is known for the bright shades of red, orange, and yellow that the season brings with it. The leaves turn many beautiful bright shades of colors that can be made into a vacation for you and your loved ones. This season is perfect for a short, last minute weekend getaway in a cabin to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage.



Some of the world’s most famous festivals are celebrated during the fall. Those include Mexico’s Day of the Dead, Germany’s Oktoberfest, India’s Diwali, Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta, Philippine’s Masskara festival, England’s Guy Fawkes Day, France’s Nuit Blanche Festival, China’s Mid-Autumn Festival, and the many Halloween Parades across North America.

To find out more about these destinations and their respective and cultural etiquette, you can check the Pre-Travel Information feature on our Global Travel Plus Mobile App.



The fall is one of the best seasons to pick your own apples, pears, squash, and sweet potatoes at local farms. Delicious pies and fresh apple cider topped with cinnamon can also be enjoyed during this time of year.
