Never too soon to start planning a trip for wonderful fall! That’s why we’re suggesting 5 amazing destinations that will take luxury travel lover’s breath this fall. We dare you not to book a trip to one of these places after you see the photos!
Lake Tahoe, USA
Situated between California and Nevada, the largest alpine lake in the United States is renowned for its beauty all year long, but fall brings some special treats, including fewer crowds. There’s no better place to enjoy premium food and spirits in gorgeous surroundings than the Lake Tahoe Annual Food And Wine Festival, held every September. In addition, the water temperature is still more than agreeable in the fall, so don’t be afraid to take out the boat or go swimming.
Bruges is home to some truly stunning medieval architecture that takes on a fairy tale feeling as autumn’s colors transform the city into a feast for the eyes. Fall is a great time to stroll along the canal (don’t forget to take a photo!), visit an open-air market, and sample some of the city’s famed hot chocolate. Bruges is also home to some great museums dedicated to everything from archaeology to the Belgian frite.
London, United Kingdom
While London is a world-class city 365 days a year, fall takes the British capital to new heights. Festival season takes flight with film, food, theatre, and design all on proud display. Don’t spend all your time inside, though: the city’s legendary parks and perfect for enjoying the crisp autumn air. Best of all, many parks are home to museums and historic homes, so you can get the best of both indoors and out!
Loire Valley, France
This picturesque slice of wine country in central France is known not only for its vineyards, but also for its historic chateaux. Take a short train ride from Paris and enjoy some of the finest vintages in the world surrounded by beautiful architecture, charming provincial towns, and colorful fall foliage that’s said to rival that of New England.
Although some may call Montreal a piece of Europe in North America, the reality is more complex – and more interesting! The most populous city in Quebec is heavily influenced by both French and Canadian culture for a flavor all its own. The end of summer doesn’t mean the end of the party; Montreal is bursting with festivals all year long and the hockey season kicks off in October with both the NHL and the CWHL (Canadian Women’s Hockey League) showcasing some of the best the sport has to offer.
