The crisp air and fiery colors of fall make it a gorgeous season to travel in, and there are destination choices to suit just about everyone. For some travel inspiration, take a look at some of OROGOLD’s favorite places to choose from when it comes to deciding where to spend fall vacation.
You may think that you have seen spectacular fall foliage displays, but none of those would even slightly compare to the colors that you would experience in New England. The reason for this is down to New England’s unique combination of soil, weather and altitude, as well as because of the specific variety of trees found in the region. New England’s different regions each provide their own unique fall experience. Animal lovers will enjoy a fall vacation in Maine, where the bull moose and their massive antlers can be seen, while adrenaline junkies may prefer zip lining through the colorful foliage in New Hampshire. If you can’t decide where about in New England to visit, OROGOLD recommends taking a look at some of the holiday packages available, as these will take you through some of New England’s best areas. However, OROGOLD reminds you that New England is one of the most popular fall destinations in the country, so booking early is absolutely essential.
The Berkshires is located in the mountains of western Massachusetts, and is an extremely popular vacation spot, especially during fall. This is a destination that OROGOLD would highly recommend for the whole family, as there is plenty to keep everybody entertained. Make the most of the season’s harvest by going apple picking at Hilltop Orchards, or spend the afternoon sampling dishes from the many food trucks. There is also a Hall of Pumpkins that is always popular with children, and plenty of fall festivals to enjoy.
The Adirondack Mountains are in the north-east of Upstate New York, and, covering over six million acres, are larger than Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite combined! As you can imagine, this means that there are endless opportunities for outdoor sports and activities, from fishing to hiking to horse riding. There are also some great fall festivals in the area, with a few of them Oktoberfest-themed. OROGOLD recommends the Oktoberfest celebrations at Lake Placid, as these feature dozens of local craft breweries, as well as traditional Oktoberfest music, dancing and other entertainment.
The cooler weather and beautiful foliage makes fall an ideal time of the year to explore a new destination, making the most of the stunning displays that Mother Nature puts on. Whether you want to see the foliage from above by ziplining through the treetops, or quietly take in the beauty while fishing at a mountain lake, OROGOLD’s favorite fall vacation destinations will definitely provide an unforgettable trip.
