The 5 best reasons to travel during fall

Catherine Jones —

If you are reading this, this is your sign to go on your dream vacation this fall.

I know what you’re thinking: « it’s not that easy! » and I’m not here to convince you that it is. Because, well, traveling can be hard, it can make you feel uncomfortable, and it can make you apprehensive. But I think that not going on the trip you’ve been contemplating, not taking risks, and not going out of your comfort zone is also hard. In the end, you just have to trust yourself enough to try new things.

Since it’s so easy to find reasons to say no, I’ve made a list of reasons why this time you should say yes. So, here are my five best reasons to travel during fall.


1. The weather is great

It’s not too cold, it’s not too warm – it’s just right. You don’t have to worry about being too hot while you’re hiking in the sun or when you’re reading on the beach, you can enjoy yourself to the fullest. In most travel destinations, you can pack light and only bring a few layers.


2. It’s peaceful

What I’ve learned over the years is that whenever you want to be somewhere, there’s probably a bunch of people that want to be there too. For this reason, travelling during the fall season is ideal – you avoid the big crowds and the busy streets. This way, it’s easier to travel spontaneously: no reservations, no line-ups.


3. It’s cheap

This is probably the best reason why you should travel during the fall. In most cities, the rates are better, and the flights are budget friendly. You’re avoiding the months of peak demand.


4. The festivals are abundant

Around the world, you’ll find unique and fun celebrations during the fall season! Some of these include Oktoberfest, Día de los Muertos, Harvest or even wine festivals. Wherever you’ll be traveling, I’m sure you’ll have lots to choose from.


5. The seasonal food is tasty

When you travel during fall, you have access to an authentic culinary experience! The large selection of seasonal foods allows you to discover new flavors while enjoying the scenery.


In short, travelling is a great way to get out of your routine and see the world through a new lens. So, book that flight!


See you somewhere around the world!
