Fall is truly one of the best seasons for travel. It’s not too hot, it’s not too cold, and the crowds that usually hit popular destinations in the summer have calmed down. Prices are lower, autumn vibes are in full swing, and nature is absolutely beautiful. So if you’re looking for somewhere to travel to this fall, here are our picks.

Santorini, Greece

Santorini is stunning year-round. After all, there’s a reason why more than two million people make it a point to visit every year. But the best time to visit is in the off-season, meaning October and November. It’s less touristy and more authentic, plus the weather is still quite nice.

Salem, Massachusetts

If you’re a fan of Halloween, then there’s no better place to go in October than the spookiest, witchiest place in all of the United States, Salem, Massachusetts. Known for the infamous Salem Witch Trials, the city now celebrates horror and the occult throughout the year and especially throughout October.

Albuquerque, New Mexico

Want to see something breathtaking? Then you have to visit Albuquerque during the International Balloon Fiesta in October, which is often called the most photographed event in the world. It’s an experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
