The majority of us tend to equate summer with vacation and fall as back to business. But why should the end of summer mean the end of your travel adventures? Let us offer a few reasons to reconsider this line of thinking.
The travel world, like most businesses, runs on supply and demand. Fall sits between the peak summer season and the busier winter seasons. This means many airlines; hotels and attractions charge lower prices or offer special packages in an effort to attract business. Take advantage of the savings.
With school back in session, Fall means a relief from the summer crowds. Lines are shorter at attractions and won’t be overcrowded. Airplanes are not oversold, so you may have access to better seats. In short, you more than likely will experience a more relaxed vacation experience in the Fall.
Fall Festivals have become a major drawing power in many places around the world. The cooler weather and harvest customs offer the perfect reason to celebrate. Oktoberfest. Apple Celebrations. Pumpkin Chunking. The list of fun and unusual happenings is limitless – there is something from everyone. Here is a link to a list of festivals throughout the state of Texas.
Here in Texas Fall means one very important thing – relief from the summer heat. Just because the calendar says autumn doesn't mean the weather automatically turns frosty. Warm, sunny weather lasts well beyond the end of September for many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. It makes you want to get out and travel.
