Summer is slowly coming to a close, but that shouldn’t stop you from planning your next journey. Early fall is just around the corner, and it’s secretly the ideal time to hit the road and keep your passion for traveling alive for more reasons than one.

Perfect Weather

Between hot summer temperatures and cold, snowy winter days, pretty much every season has its downsides—but not early fall. You’ll be blessed with perfect weather if you decide to travel in late September and early October before it gets gloomy and rainy.

Avoid the Crowds

Crowded attractions, long lines, and overbooked accommodations will become a thing of the past if you decide to travel in early fall. Once the peak season is finally over, all major tourist hubs will be less crowded.

Huge Money Saver

Traveling outside of the peak season is also a huge money saver because everything from transportation and accommodation to tickets to major tourist attractions tends to be much cheaper once the summer is over.

Stunning Scenery

If you’re a huge fan of travel photography, you’ll have the chance to hone your skills in early fall, when picture-perfect fall foliage is everywhere and the scenery is more captivating than ever.
