Fall is in full swing — it’s the season of falling leaves, cooler temps, and pumpkin spice lattes. Although the season is well underway, 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. Ride the iconic cable cars, enjoy the view from Coit Tower, and pay a visit to Ghirardelli Square. Just make sure to bring some chocolate home to share — your friends and family will thank you.
2. Fall Festivals In Branson, Missouri
Fall is the season of the harvest, and in the American midwest, it’s something that has long been marked with fall festivals. Not only is Branson beautiful in the fall, but it’s got the absolute motherlode of fall-themed festivals going on all season long. From pumpkins and hayrides to craft beer and music, there are no less than eight festivals happening in Branson this fall, and if you’re lucky you’ll be in town for at least one of them. From your home base at Club Wyndham Branson At The Falls, you’ll be perfectly positioned to partake in any and all of the fall fun happening around town. Make sure to pack a sweater or two, as the falling leaves and cooler temps make it the perfect time to take a stroll down one of Branson’s many nature trails.
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. A Honky-Tonk Hoopla In Nashville
You can always find live music in Music City, but fall in Nashville is thought by many to be the best time to visit if you’re looking for a country-music high. In fall, things really get down to business in Nashville, and you’ll find live music happening all over the city, including outdoor performances. The city hosts more than 10 music-themed fall festivals, and countless concerts and pop-up performances too. Book a stay at Club Wyndham Nashville and you’ll be within one mile of the Grand Ole Opry, and countless other honky tonks that will have you tapping your toes before you even walk in the door. Cowboy boots and hat are optional, but a flannel shirt is required — the Nashville nights are cool this time of year.
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.
