Fly Away to 2018’s Unique Fall Vacation Destinations

 

Summer vacation preparations may be behind us, but it is never too early to plan ahead! Traveling in the fall is often great for those on a budget, as it is not a popular time for getaways. If your schedule permits you to sneak away after the long months of the summer heat, allow Rubinsohn Travel to book the perfect, yet affordable fall vacation. From Eastern and Northern Europe, to Southern Africa, and North America, there are endless destinations that are waiting to be visited. See Rubinsohn Travel’s suggestions below of places you may have not thought of exploring, but definitely should!

Šolta, Croatia

Solta boasts over 9 miles of sandy white beaches and beautiful turquoise water. The sea is perfect for water activities, such as swimming, fishing, and boating. If you have a penchant for adventure, visit Tatinja Bay and cliff jump into the deep blue depths or seek solace for a romantic weekend in tiny Zaglav Bay. Travelers with a sweet tooth can try any one of the island’s mouthwatering Dalmatian desserts including carob cake, fritters, and paradižot. Those looking to get educated can visit family-run farms on the island, and learn the art of making oil, wine, and even honey. September and October in Croatia are known to be ideal weather months with many days available for swimming, and all of the tourist facilities still open without being crowded.

Egypt

Known for centuries as the place to see a mummy, Egypt plans to present a new tourist destination this fall. Not far from the Great Pyramids is the site of the new monument: The Grand Egyptian Museum. The museum will feature the treasures of the pharaohs, including the legendary Tutankhamen. In addition to the new museum, tourists can visit Egyptian classics such as the Great Sphinx of Giza and the Valley of the Kings. Egypt offers plenty of multi-level scuba diving lessons, as well as snorkeling in its beautiful, blue waters. Weather-wise, the best time to visit Egypt is from October to April, so the fall season fits right in!

Zambia

Zambia features walking safaris, beautiful waterfalls, and diverse wildlife. This peaceful destination features several national parks, such as Luambe, Kafue, and legendary safari tours. Zambia also boasts six waterfalls, including the famous Victoria Falls, four lakes, and three rivers, which are all perfect for water activities. Discover the heart of Africa and reconnect with nature in this beautiful nation. Outstanding sunsets are almost always guaranteed. There is plenty of adventurous as well as leisure activities, so everyone can find something enjoyable to do in Zambia. May to October marks the great, mild temperature at Zambia, but you might get late hints of summer, as September and October can sometimes get hot.

Archipelago Sea, Finland

This old European nation has a lot of history within it. Visitors can visit old wooden towns, lighthouses, and grand old stone churches. The small villages include charming cafes, shops, and markets. The capital, Helsinki, is filled with interesting design, architecture, culture, and can be explored on foot, for those looking to gain some exercise. The famous and beautiful Northern Lights also arrive as early as September. Finland’s seasons resemble America’s weather pattern, which allows you to explore the country in comfortable weather, without the strong, summer heat waves. If, on the other hand, you are looking for the opposite extreme, snow arrives in November, making for scenic landscapes.

Toronto, Canada

Trying to go international but stick close to home? Toronto, Canada is the place to go! Visit the historic distillery district for art galleries, restaurants, performances, and of course breweries. Kids (and adults!) will never have a bad day at the Toronto Zoo, one of the largest in the world. At the end of September, there is an all-night art extravaganza, Nuit Blanche. It is a unique event as it begins at sunset and ends at the start of sunrise. Hockey fans are encouraged to visit the NHL Hall of Fame, dedicated to history of ice hockey. Again, fall season allows for pleasant weather without the inconvenience of big, tourist crowds.
