You may think that summer is the best time of year to get out of town but we’re here to make a strong case for October.
No. 1: Kids are back in school.
Whether you have kids or not, having them back in school means fewer people are taking advantage of the weekends for getaways. That means less traffic and more space wherever you’re headed.
No. 2: The weather doesn’t suck.
Just a few weeks into fall means you’re still catching the tail-end of summer weather. So expect some sunshine paired with a cool breeze. You can leave the parka at home as a sweater should do the trick.
No. 3: Nestled between holidays.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner and are some of the most stressful travel times. Taking a trip in October is the ideal time to escape before the madness ensues.
No. 4: Colors aplenty.
The trees and shrubs will show you that fall is in full effect. This is the perfect time of year to watch the natural world transform before your eyes.
No. 5: Get sweet deals.
Because October is a lull in the travel industry, many companies will offer tantalizing discounts of which to take advantage. So snag that cheap airfare or discounted room while you can!
So what do you say, are you ready for an October getaway? We’ve got some pretty exceptional spots in mind that we’d love to share with you.
