Bring out those sweaters because fall weather is perfect for exploring, whether it’s a city or a national park. Not too hot, yet not too cold either, you can explore to your heart’s content in a comfortable climate. You won’t have to worry about breaking a sweat, and you also won’t have to jam bulky sweaters and coats in your suitcase. A true win-win.

For travelers on a budget, fall is one of the cheapest times of the year to travel. Technically the “off-season,” both airfare and hotels are generally cheaper in the fall than in the summer or during the holidays.

If you’re willing to take a risk, Caribbean travel is especially cheap thanks to the hurricane or rainy season.

Fall is a beautiful time to travel thanks to the changing leaves. Rent a cabin in the mountains, take a road trip, or stay in a charming village where you can oglebright shades of red, yellow, and orange.

Fall cuisine is a category all its own. Peak season for apples, pears, squash, and sweet potatoes, fall might be the best time of the year to wine and dine. Whether you’re getting outdoorsy and going apple picking, or noshing on seasonal dishes at a restaurant, your taste buds are sure to love fall.
