    Summer vacation might be ending, but travel is still heating up. Many have caught on to the benefits of traveling in the fall. The weather is still fantastic, destinations aren’t as crowded, and there are plenty of deals out there to entice more bookings during this typically slow season for the tourism industry. Be prepared to book last-minute getaways with these fabulous fall destinations!


    It’s always paradise in Hawaii, making it the ideal destination year-round. The beaches are definitely a big draw, but eco-adventures, water sports and unique culture also entice globetrotters. Where else can you see red lava flowing from a volcano, swim with gentle-giant manta rays and tour the only Royal Palace in the USA on one trip?

    Spain and Portugal

    While sun worshipers may flock to Spain and Portugal in the summer in search of Mediterranean and Atlantic sands, locals will tell you nothing beats the bold colors and great weather of the autumn season.  Wine lovers rejoice! Early September is Spain’s wine harvest and touring vineyards in the fall is a feast for the eyes. Head to the Rioja and Ribera regions and leave space in your suitcase for a few bottles to bring home.

    ABC Islands of Lesser Antilles, Caribbean

    Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao, also known as the ABC Islands, have the benefit of being in the farthest southwestern point of the Caribbean, meaning weather is always perfect and storms usually pass them by. Once part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, these islands still have touches of the Dutch influence mixed with vibrant Caribbean flair.  


    When it comes to choosing where to go on vacation, Mexico has amazing options in bulk. Cancun and Riviera Maya are big hitters on the Caribbean side, but Cabo San Lucas’ nightlife is legendary on the Pacific. Mix beach fun with history and culture in Mazatlan, or chill with locals in the laid-back yet modern Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo region. No matter what you’re looking for, Mexico has a perfect match.


    The USA’s Golden State has the advantage of having the some of the country’s most iconic cities within a few hours of each other with thrilling sights and activities in between. With friendly locals, weather in the 70s almost all the time and arguably the most famous zoo in the world, San Diego is always a good idea. Searching for stars in Los Angeles is a quintessential must-do, and unlocking the mysteries of Alcatraz in San Francisco never disappoints.
