The 15 Best Weekend Trips on the East Coast in the Fall

Summer may be over but the traveling season doesn’t have to be


The adventurous places you can go as the seasons begin to change are practically endless. Traveling in the fall is even better in two significant ways—fewer crowds which ultimately means better deals and cheaper accommodations.

Consider stunning fall foliage, one of nature’s best color displays, just a bonus.

Vacationing somewhere in New England between September and November is a classic trip. You can’t go wrong no matter where or how you choose to spend your time as long as it’s outdoors. But you can also go on a beachside trip or deep in the countryside.

The places on the following list offer a lot of adventures; visitors probably need at least a week to make the most of all opportunities presented to them. However, big trips are not always feasible. Weekend-long outings are worth it.

Whether it’s an issue of not having enough money, time or you simply have too much on your plate, it’s not always possible to make major excursions a reality, but that doesn’t mean you can’t travel on Saturdays and Sundays.

The most convenient destinations are nearby. These little escapes allow you to enjoy time away without being all that far from home and maximize relaxation while minimizing travel time.
