TripAdvisor.com publishes the top 10 fall travel destinations based on popularity and compatibility with US budgets. Based on information collected by TripAdvisor.com, Americans will be heading to these top 10 destinations this fall.
That time of year has come when the leaves are changing. And for many of us, it’s time for inner journeys. Regardless of the pitfalls the looming recession brings, about 35% of Americans say they will travel this fall despite the rising cost of travel.
By skimping on other areas, such as the home renovations everyone has been doing during non-travel times for the past couple of years, travelers are still coming out. Another compromise that American travelers have found is to shorten their vacation time. Instead of one-week vacations, we will instead opt for three- to four-day trips.
Whether by air or road, travelers plan to get out and travel between September and November. Here’s a TripAdvisor.com list of the top 10 fall travel destinations in the United States.
