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.

ALLEN JONES
4 stars
“We really enjoyed the Zephyr from Chicago to Salt Lake City. The accommodations were fun, the meals were mixed - some very good; others not so much, the service by all Amtrak staff very good. The scenery was outstanding! Hotels in Salt Lake & Yellowstone were very nice. Unfortunately our trip was interrupted by the railroad strike (that never happened). Vacations by Rail has handled it very professionally and quickly. I also bought trip insurance and have filed a claim (still waiting for a resolution from them).
