You had a great summer, right? You spent time with friends and family, enjoyed some fresh air and sunshine, and maybe even checked a thing or two off your bucket list. So what now? Fall is right around the corner, and you’re definitely not too late to make some fall travel magic happen. Picture yourself putting your feet up and relaxing at one of these amazing options for your next fall getaway. These travel hot-spots are hoppin’ busy in the summer, but you’re savvy enough to skip the summer rush and visit during a quieter time.
1. Golden Getaways In San Francisco, California
Fall is the absolute best time to visit San Francisco (and if you are skeptical, just ask a local). The sun comes out, the fog clears, and the Golden City lives up to its nickname more than any other time of year. Club Wyndham Canterbury is perfectly situated to help you see and do all that San Francisco has to offer. From the Golden Gate Bridge and Fisherman’s Wharf to Alcatraz and Chinatown, your resort is the gateway to it all. Make sure to bring some Ghirardelli chocolate home to share your friends and family will thank you.
2. A Quieter Time In Kissimmee, Florida
Aside from its proximity to several world-renowned theme parks (Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, and SeaWorld Orlando, to name a few), Kissimmee offers a quieter alternative to its noisy neighbor, Orlando . Fall is a particularly lovely time to visit Florida, and Club Wyndham Cypress Palms is a peaceful oasis that offers visitors a cozy and relaxing home-away-from-home, just minutes from the area’s top attractions. Kissimmee is full of exciting adventures, including airboat rides, a military museum, and an historical pioneer village. For a truly unique experience, visit Gatorland and check out the park’s extremely rare giant white alligators.
3. Sun & Sand In Pompano Beach, Florida
If golden sand and warm sunshine are what you seek for your fall getaway, Pompano Beach is calling your name. Conveniently located between Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale , Pompano Beach is affectionately known as “the Heart of Florida’s Gold Coast.” Outdoor enthusiasts and beach bums alike will revel in the area’s many attractions, including a wide variety of options for boating, fishing, and snorkeling on the area’s living coral reef. Club Wyndham Palm-Aire is a fun-filled paradise that puts you at the heart of it all. Golfers can golf, shoppers can shop, and sand castle builders can build amazing creations using Pompano Beach’s pristine sand minus the crowds of summer. Don’t forget to visit Butterfly World, which is quite literally the world’s largest butterfly park.
4. Spooky Adventures In New Orleans, Louisiana
With the heat of the summer past, fall is an ideal time to visit New Orleans . Fall in the Big Easy is full of blue skies and fragrant blooming flowers, minus the (nearly) intolerable humidity of the summer months. Located in the city’s quaint and quiet(er) Garden District, Club Wyndham Avenue Plaza is a haven to come back to after a long day’s sojourn to all the areas top sights. Once you’ve hit Bourbon Street and meandered the French Quarter, you’ll be full of the city’s best food and drinks (and of the area’s eerie history). From haunted cemeteries and plantations to vampire sightings and old pirate haunts, fall is the best (and spookiest) time to visit NOLA. Make sure to eat a beignet (or fifteen) while you’re there.
5. Changing Leaves In New York City
Who doesn’t love fall in New York ? It’s kind of a big thing. The northeast is known for its beautiful autumns, with the changing of the seasons marked by brilliant leaves of red, orange, and golden brown. The Big Apple in fall is just as hustly and bustly as any other time of the year, just prettier. And at Club Wyndham Midtown 45 , even though the city outside may not be sleeping, you’ll sleep like a baby tucked away in your cozy resort. No doubt you’ll visit the usual NYC must-sees, from Lady Liberty and the Empire State Building to Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial. Maybe you’ll grab lunch from a street vendor in Times Square or take in a show on Broadway. Maybe you’ll sleep, maybe you won’t. In New York City, you have all the options.
