Cooler temperatures call for colorful leaves, vibrant landscapes, and a vacation or two to take in it all in. With autumn days away, people everywhere are planning their getaways. Whether flying or driving (or flying to drive!), the travel experts at CheapOair are sharing some of their favorite spots for the perfect socially distanced and idyllic fall trip.
“Here at CheapOair, we know that fall vacation destinations are the worst kept secret in travel. Flight prices are down, the weather is beautiful, and many consumers want to get some leisure travel in before the frantic holiday rush. Even in times where we all must be careful, there’s still a lot of adventure to be had as long you take precautions,” remarked Sam S. Jain, Founder and CEO of Fareportal, owner of travel brands CheapOair and OneTravel.
This classic New England village sits at the base of Vermont’s highest peak, which provides an excellent vantage point for those who want to see the beautiful changing leaves. Visitors are recommended to take a drive through Stowe’s scenic back roads to really take in the splendor.
