Every season has its own unique type of beauty. The Fall is when the air gets a little crisper, the trees start to shed their leaves, and all the Pumpkin Spice Latte lovers come out.
The Fall can have a special look and feel to it based on where you are. There are so many beautiful locations around the world that bring a whole new reality to what the season of Fall is.
Here are 10 of the most beautiful places to travel to that provide the ultimate “Fall” experience.
1. Bavaria, Germany
The southern region of Germany is known for its rolling alps, the birthplace of Oktoberfest, and the castle that inspired Sleeping Beauty’s palace. It’s a beautiful place to go to during any time of the year, but it’s especially stunning in the Fall.
Imagine being able to take a train ride through the mountains while the foliage of the leaves changes color. It’s like a painting coming to life before your eyes. With all of the surrounding beauty, it’s also a great time to party at Oktoberfest. What could be a more appealing Fall experience to have?
2. Alberta, Canada
The Canadian National Park of Banff is flocked to by tourists at all times or the year. With its towering mountains, ever flowing forest and emerald lake ––it’s definitely a sight worth seeing. In the Fall, this view is flourishing with color as the trees start to prepare for the Winter months ahead. And a bonus: you can get out of the chilly Fall air by taking a dip in the hot springs.
3. Napa Valley, California
Fall colors and wine anyone? Going to Napa Valley during its off-season means that the hotels prices go way down, making it a great affordable option. You might not think of California as a top destination to view the warm tones of Fall, but what you will find is that the already stunning wine vineyards are where the season’s colors appear. They display rows upon rows of the unique orange and red autumn colors.
4. Tokyo, Japan
Tokyo is known for its Cherry Blossoms in the Spring, but it is also a sight to behold in the Fall. The red pagodas around the city are highlighted by the changing leaves of the season.
5. Shenandoah Valley, Virginia
The Shenandoah Valley is the perfect place to take a road trip through. You can watch all the Fall’s foliage pass you by like a movie. Take in the incredible show that mother nature is putting on. The valley and hills present a new perspective at every turn, which will keep you captivated for hours.
