Vacation Destinations That Are Best Experienced in October
No matter what sort of vibe you’re seeking this month, these eight destinations will come alive for all your October wanderlusting.
October is not a particularly common month to set out on adventures—which is what makes it an especially great time of year to travel.
Those in the know will often refer to October as “shoulder season.” This refers to the time when crowds are starting to dwindle but conditions are still good enough that attractions remain open. Some beach towns may even refer to this time of year as “locals summer.”
Whether you’re looking to partake in Oktoberfest, sing along at a music festival, or venture out into nature, October is one of the most interesting times of year to do so. You’ll be able to dive into authentic experiences—without having to contend with packs of school children or tour groups.
