2. Experience Florida’s Magic of Disney
When the weather cools, Disney World’s crowds begin to clear and the park’s long lines of visitors return home. Disney may be a hotspot for tourists year-round, but summer is their busiest season. September through mid-November, on the other hand, is the park’s least-crowded months of the year.
Walt Disney World’s 2019 autumn calendar is chock full of special attractions and events including a wine and food festival, the World of Avatar, a not-so-scary Halloween party, and Toy Story Land. Plus, this fall marks the opening of four awesome new adventures: the NBA Experience, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Epcot Forever, and Rivers of Light.
When you plan your Disney trip in the fall, you won’t have to sweat out Florida’s tortuous summer temps which tend to average close to 100 degrees.
Best of all, perhaps, is the savings on hotel accommodations that allow you to take advantage of everything that Disney has to offer…on a budget.
3. Immerse Yourself in North Carolina’s Native American History
During the tragic Trail of Tears, a group of Cherokee Indians hid away in the mountains of North Carolina while other Indians were forced to journey across America in harsh, unforgiving conditions that led many to their death. They remained there until it was deemed safe to come down and live peaceably in the place they had fled.
Today, the ancestors of those brave Cherokee men and women continue to carry on native culture and traditions. You can learn about their historical battles and victories when you visit the Eastern band of Cherokee Indians Reservation in North Carolina.
Take a walk down native America’s memory lane, explore magnificent mountains, trails and rivers, and capture sightings of the grand Eastern Elk, who, after becoming extinct in the late 1700s, were recently successfully reintroduced in North Carolina.
4. Behold the Beauty of Vermont
Vermont’s famous fall foliage season is a stunning sight to behold. The state’s native maple trees display blanketed landscapes of glittering gold and succulent crimson. And, there’s never a shortage of things to do in Vermont during this time of year.
Visitors can stroll through Peacham, rumored to be the most photographed town in New England or ride the gondola up to Vermont’s highest peak. Pick apples, wind through a corn maze, visit a classic Vermont village or gaze at the ancient Quechee Gorge. Whatever you decide, you’ll agree there’s no place on earth like Vermont in the fall.
