Travel Recommendations for the Fall
Well it’s time to say goodbye to another great summer. Although summer may be over, that doesn’t mean good times aren’t ahead – rather just the opposite. We have entered the wonderful fall travel season! The leaves are beginning to turn, and the barrels of cider will soon be out. Before you decide whether you want to be a vampire or a pirate for Halloween or who’s responsible for the guacamole for NFL Sunday, have you ever considered a fall vacation? Here at Travellution we’ve selected a handful of favorites to serve as inspiration for your next fall trip:
Do you fancy a good pint with some festive conversation to boot? How about sprawling countrysides strewn with castles and relics of a rich heritage? Dublin, Ireland is a prime destination during the fall for its beautiful scenery and plethora of events, including the Dublin Theatre Festival, football games galore, and a marathon that attracts over half of its participants from overseas. Dublin is a fun-filled mecca with a vibrant nightlife and great food too. As a bonus, it’s a short flight from many of Europe’s biggest cities.
Maybe you read “The Crucible” or learned about the witch trials in 8th grade history class, but if you’ve never been to Salem, Massachusetts, you’re missing out on a chance to discover part of American history. During the month of October, the Cinema Salem will view The True 1692, a 3D look at what really happened during the Salem Witch trials. The Hawthorne House is a must for those English majors out there. Finally, the Connors Farm Corn Maze features many attractions including hayrides, apple picking, and haunted corn fields. You’ll never experience Halloween the same way.
The first Oktoberfest was held in 1810 when Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Bavaria. Ever since, the 16-day festival has become an international event attracting people from all walks of life. Although it is held in late September through the first weekend of October, it is called Oktoberfest because it was originally held during October, although this changed in favor of better weather. There are many events to check out during Oktoberfest – including the Tapping of the Keg, the Agriculture Festival and the Parade of Oktoberfest Landlords and Breweries – although the beer is arguably the main attraction here.
