Autumn Vacations

Vacations in the spring and summer are iconic for a reason, but there is something truly magnificent about travel in fall. Cooler temperatures bring fewer crowds, and the crisp air and changing leaves set the tone for adventure. Whether in search of colorful foliage or stunning scenery without all the buzz of other tourists, there are so many fantastic places to visit through autumn's peak in October in the USA.

Spending autumn in New England offers travelers the chance to soak in the ambiance of quaint towns while being surrounded by one of nature's most colorful displays. Places to visit in the fall on the East Coast include Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. Each state brings its own charms, from pleasant heritage railways to coastal towns and scenic byways, including the world-renowned Kancamagus Highway. Visitors can soak in fall's beautiful hues on lake cruises or from the comfortable seats of deluxe motorcoaches, each offering a fresh perspective on the scenery.

Places to travel in October and November also include destinations across America's West. Aboard Amtrak's California Zephyr, vacationers can head toward national parks, including Yellowstone and Yosemite, or venture out to California. Once in California, the Coast Starlight weaves up the state along the shore of the Pacific to present glamorous cities, wineries, mountains, and more. Fall trips may also stretch across the country, traveling from San Francisco in the West to Chicago in the Midwest or even further to New York in the East, aboard Amtrak trains. There are also autumn tours that highlight New Orleans and the beauty of the deep South. Of all vacations in the U.S., fall trips are perhaps the most unique of all with their wide range of offerings.

Autumn at the Greenbrier & Historic Trains

JEANNINE GILBERT
5 stars
“Eric our guide was full of facts presented in an interesting way.Eric was caring and enthusiastic. We would definitely sign up on another trip with him. My husband and I had walked through the memorials two days before yet still learned more on our guided tour. We liked the variety of trains,each different. The Potomac Eagle was our favorite.The dining experience was wonderful. The train, we did not enjoy, was the Cass was the one train we didn’t like.It was open air and unfortunately, the weather was awful, cold and light snow. Very uncomfortable. The Hobo lunch was unappetizing,with stale buns.The historic steam engine was what we liked about it..This was our first time in West Virginia, the scenery was beautiful and the history interesting.We liked the way Eric recommended restaurants in walking distance for each evening, The Greenbrier Inn was was very interesting in a beautiful location. We enjoyed learning about the history and seeing all the extravagant chandeliers. The formal dining was fun and a chance to get to know new friends better. Rick our driver was skilled and personable. The whole experience was a 5.

“Nice that our luggage was forwarded after each part of the trip. Food on Amtrak was better than I expected (and I'm a retired chef).
