We're crazy about all things fall and to us that means hot, spiced beverages, crisp air and changing colors, and family outings to the country. We've put together just a few of our favorite fall travel ideas and inspiration to share with you to make the most of the season.
Hot Seasonal Flavors
If you're like us, you're suddenly craving the tastes of fall - in other words, pumpkin spiced everything. It's time to trade in your Venti iced brew for something warmer--here are some ideas for café stops around the world to grab a hot cup, whether your favorite is a pumpkin spiced latte, a delectably spiced chai, a hot apple cider, or a soothing herbal tea. Layer just a bit - you'll want to sit all day and sip while enjoying the weather.
All Things Apple
Taking a family trip to an orchard is a fall activity everyone will enjoy. Here's a great orchard day trip from L.A. that will inspire you to find your local orchard and get picking. It's a good time to grab pumpkins for carving later this month, too!
Recently, I wrote about great biking destinations perfect for fall weather. But if you're craving something more exhilarating, consider a climbing tour of the Swiss Alps -- the mountains guarantee breathtaking views and plenty of activities, from fall through winter.
This time of year, there are lots of opportunities to enjoy a fall fete. The infamous Oktoberfest is celebrated across the world, but we've also found some great festivals in Halifax, Canada. Sci-fi festival, anyone? Not your thing? Try the wine or art festivals.
The changing colors and falling leaves are the signal that fall has arrived, and perhaps the best part. Crunch the fallen leaves beneath your feet on a walking tour or take a leisurely drive to view the reds, golds, and browns of the season. We suggest northeast U.S. destinations this time of year, especially Maine.
