Goodbye, Summer. We won’t miss your harsh heat or the way you made us sweat at inopportune moments. But we will miss your sun, the shorts we were able to wear, and the vacations we were able to take.
Or, will we?
Fall is rapidly becoming the best time to travel. Due to the lower costs compared to the summer, there are more things to do in a reasonable price range. But you have to find the right way to get to these cheap attractions. What better way than a trip by bus through the gorgeous changing landscape? iLIKEBUS has compiled a list of four must-see cities that spring to life in the fall. These spots are practically begging for you to come visit, and an affordable bus trip from iLIKEBUS is the best way to see them.
The heart of country music, Nashville is never more festive than it is in the fall. Parties line the streets almost every night, but never more than in the fall when the Independent Music Festival is in full swing. Take a walk around town to enjoy tunes, eat some of their award-winning cuisine, and, for those with a taste for hops and alcohol, enjoy a brew at one of the many beer festivals that take place around this time of year. Music City never looks as good as it does in the fall, and it’s important that you get down there. What are you waiting for?
Have you ever seen Central Park in the fall as the leaves turn brown and orange? Have you ever walked by Belvedere Castle as leaves fall in your face, taking you from the city to a pastoral wonderland? If you haven’t, then you need to see NYC in the autumn. Of course, the Jack O’Lantern Blaze remains the city’s great spectacle of the season, as over 7000 pumpkins light a tunnel. Comedy lives on in New York especially, and the NYC Comedy Festival remains a great reminder of that fact. You don’t need any more reasons to visit NYC, but a cheap ticket from iLIKEBUS should entice you to get up there.
No city in the world is like NOLA. And in the fall, the partying crowds of the summer disappear, but the local partying mood never does. See incredible festivals like the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival and the Voodoo Music Experience which encapsulate the city’s culture unlike any other. Football is ingrained in the culture of the city and seeing a Saints or an LSU game is an unparalleled experience. You like parties. New Orleans parties better than anyone. Get yourself there ASAP!
The capital of the nation is never more vibrant than it is in the fall. The very first African American Film Festival is being hosted by the Smithsonian at their new African American History Museum. The Colonial Market and Fair takes George Washington’s home of Mount Vernon back in time. If you’re one for the macabre and horrific, a tour of the city’s most haunted spots might be up your alley. Or if food is your primary interest, then the H Street Festival might be your best bet. Regardless of your interests, DC is has something to entertain you.
