Fall is a great time to get away from the daily grind and make new memories. All the summer travelers are back home, meaning you have fewer crowds and better experiences wherever you go. You must choose your destination before booking your private jet charter. So, to help you, we’ve compiled a list of the eight best fall destinations in America and worldwide.
8 Must-Visit Fall Destinations
1. Lancaster, Pennsylvania
There is a good chance that you have never had Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on your bucket list. But hear us out. This is also known as Pennsylvania Dutch Country. And visiting the area during harvest season means you are in for a real treat. The Amish families here have:
- Apple orchards
- Corn mazes
- Farmers’ markets
- Working farms
- Bed and breakfasts
- Delicious homemade food
They offer fresh produce and incredible baked goods. Plus, it is just a short drive from Adamstown – which has over 3,000 antique dealers. And, who knows? Maybe your visit to Lancaster can remind you to slow down a bit.
2. Kyoto, Japan
The scenery in Kyoto looks like it belongs in a painting. It is beautiful – especially in the fall. Take the time to visit must-see spots without a large group of tourists. The temperatures here are moderate, just before the cold begins around mid-to-late December. Don’t miss the Kiyomizu-Dera Temple, Hokan-Ji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and Hozugawa River. There are so many unique places for you to enjoy on your trip.
3. Apple Pie Trail, Ontario, Canada
Rumor is that apples push pumpkins out the door regarding fall’s favorite flavor. If that’s so, you will want to check out Apple Pie Trail in Ontario because nothing beats the taste of a freshly picked apple from a local orchard. This trail, located along the South Georgian Bay area, makes its way through a few different cities.
And each has something unique to offer. Restaurants, shops, wineries, and more – all with the apple as their focus – have something special and delicious to provide guests. Just don’t forget to try apple iced wine while you are here.
4. Aspen, Colorado
Fall is one of the most spectacular times to visit Aspen. Sunny days light up the brightly-colored trees and nothing but blue skies above. The temperatures are more relaxed at night and more moderate during the day.
A trip to the top of the mountain can give you unforgettable fall views. Aspen isn’t all about skiing. You will surely find so much to do here, like a stroll through downtown Aspen, taking a gondola ride, going for a hike, driving along Independence Pass, and more.
5. Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia
Cabot Trail is a scenic highway found along the coast of Cape Breton Island. The fall colors are majestic. While traveling on the trail, you will go through places like Margaree River Valley, Cape Breton Highlands National Park, and Bras d’Or Lake. Enjoy fishing, whale watching, museums, artisan shops, and, believe it or not, Alexander Graham Bell’s National Historic Site.
6. Bavaria, Germany
Fall is the perfect time to visit Bavaria. The fall foliage colors are stunning – so it is no wonder that Germany uses it to host many fall fairs and festivals, including Oktoberfest. You read that right – choose this as your destination, and you may get to experience the real, authentic Oktoberfest.
Indulge some German beer, eat some schnitzel, and dance the night away. Spend your days outdoors in the perfect weather. You will find hiking trails, mountain biking, and more. You will enjoy all the sights and surroundings of this beautiful city this time of year.
7. Fontainebleau, France
Paris may be the go-to destination for many when it comes to a trip to France. However, when looking for a fall getaway, you can’t ask for anything more than Fontainebleau, France. This destination city is incredible with its intense amount of fall foliage and sandstone boulders. Let yourself wander through them and take in all the beauty. But don’t forget that you are in France. You have to enjoy some freshly baked croissants, chocolate croissants, baguettes, and even a bottle of wine.
8. Sleepy Hollow, New York
Did you know Sleepy Hollow, NY, was the setting for Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? For those who know the story, a visit here in the fall can bring it to life. While the town is quaint and beautiful, the activities are the more prominent attraction. For example, you can take a walk through the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, lit only by a lantern.
You can see where Irving is buried and the crypt of Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows. Have some Halloween fun on the Sleepy Hollow Haunted Hayride or walk through a transformed historic home called the Headless Horseman’s Sleepy Hollow. You will come and see – and leave forever changed.
