Autumn Adventures: Best Fall Travel Destinations in 2023

As the heat and excitement of summer melt away, it can be tempting to bundle up inside and hold out til the holidays to travel again.

But there are so many gorgeous destinations around the world just begging to be explored during the autumn months! Whether you’re a fan of foliage, festivals, or delicious seasonal treats, here are my top five destinations to help you FALL in love with this beautiful season!

Sundance, Utah, USA

Don’t wait for ski season to visit the stunning Utah mountains! Sundance Resort is the perfect place for a scenic drive around the Alpine Loop, family friendly haunted lift ride, or fall hike with a cup of hot chocolate to finish! The gorgeous yellow aspen leaves in this part of the Wasatch Mountains takes my breath away every single year.

New England, USA

When it comes to fall foliage, no place rivals the northeastern region of the United States. States like Vermont, Connecticut, and Massachusetts transform into a kaleidoscope of reds, oranges, and yellows, creating the perfect autumn landscape. Take a scenic drive through the Pocano Mountains, stop by the historic witch town of Salem, or pick apples in a charming orchard.

Monterey, California, USA

This part of central Cali is a great destination option if you’re looking for a warmer autumn getaway. The Monterey fall season comes with food and art festivals, apple picking, and my personal favorite, the monarch butterfly migration!

Mexico: Dia de los Muertos

Celebrate family connections during this beautiful November festival in Mexico! Enjoy delicious foods like pan de muerto and calaveras, watch colorful parades, and discover the beauty of ofrendas in local cemeteries.

Germany: Oktoberfest

This quintessential fall festival is about SO much more than drinking beer! If you’re a sober traveler like me, dive into the parades, traditional German food, amusement park rides, live music, and all the apfelschorle (sparkling apple juice) you can drink!

Make the Most of the Autumn Moments

Don’t let the changing seasons put a damper on your travel plans! There are so many fall travel destinations around the world that truly shine during the fall season. Embrace the cool air, vibrant colors, and cozy ambiance as you adventure to some of the best fall destinations the world has to offer.
