Top Travel Destinations for Fall

As a Michigander, it pains me to say that it is nearing the end of summer.  While I am disappointed to see warmer days start to fade away, others across the country, especially those in warmer temperatures are probably looking forward to the cooler days of fall. Despite my dislike for colder temperatures, Michigan is still a beautiful place in the fall, especially along the Great Lakes, but it isn’t the only place in the United States that is great during fall. Check out these other great destinations for fall travel.


Many visitors come to Boston during July, especially around 4th of July to celebrate America’s birthday. Due to this, Boston is much more enjoyable in the fall after the majority of tourists have come and gone. Historic buffs will love visiting Boston and music lovers looking for something besides Nashville can experience a lot of classical music in the City on a Hill.


Nashville has been voted as the most affordable vacation spot so if you’re on a budget, make this you destination! Living up to its nickname, Music City is one of the best places to enjoy live music. Nashville’s food scene has become very expansive over the years making it a great place for foodies and not just music lovers!

New Orleans

New Orleans tops Travel + Leisure’s best Neighborhood joins and cafes, Singles/bar scene, Cocktail hour, People-watching, and New Year’s Eve lists. If that isn’t enough to make you want to go to The Big Easy, then maybe knowing they are one of the best cities for quaint bed and breakfasts or inns. They also have a lot of vintage shops and a wonderful flea market!


Let’s be honest, Savannah is gorgeous any time of year. Unfortunately, the summer heat makes it hard to enjoy the city’s historic architecture and charm. While visiting in the fall, you are able meander through the 22, yes 22, historic districts without sweating profusely. Savannah is considered to be an affordable and cultural getaway which makes it even better!

Washington, D.C.

Similar to Boston, Washington, D.C. is packed with tourists during the summer months. Going in the fall will allow for better viewing of many of Washington, D.C.’s best attractions. It is no surprise that the city is best known for its historical sites and monuments in addition to museums and galleries. One of the best parts about the city is that you won’t need to rent a car since Washington, D.C.’s public transportation is top-notch.
