I know the snow is still kind of swirling out there and spring is barely around the corner. However, now is the perfect time to start planning your fall family vacation. Not everything is booked solid yet. Therefore, you have more choices available to you. And that means you can easily take a family vacation everyone will love. Today, I am going to share my favorite fall family vacation destinations.
Maine’s coastline can get quite crowded during the summer months. The crowds die down though in the fall, making it the perfect time to visit. The fall foliage is perfect. Especially late September or early October.
Your days can be spent strolling through the Old Port historic district. Or you can take family photos at the Portland Head Lighthouse. Don’t forget a side trip to the LL Bean store to grab a picture of the infamous boot.
Oh, and if your family loves festivals, Maine has the perfect one in October. Harvest on the Harbor is a weekend long festival. All types of seafood are available, as well as craft spirits and Bloody Mary’s.
The temperatures are mild in Japan during the fall months. The best part is the rainy season has also ended. Action is everywhere in Tokyo. Your kids will love driving go-karts through the downtown streets. Weaving in and out of traffic is optional.
Grabbing a snack in Tokyo isn’t as mundane as it is at home. In this city, you can find almost any item you need in a vending machine. Ready to eat ramen is a top vending machine seller. So are umbrellas, burgers, and clothing.
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city while on a fall family vacation, I recommend Mount Fuji. It’s relaxing and I can plan an itinerary your entire family will love.
The kids will be closer than ever when you decide to take a New England road trip. Especially crammed into the backseat of the car with their electronics.
You can drive through Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, or Connecticut. Every state has a route that will be more breathtaking than the last.
I vote for the Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park. This twenty-seven-mile road offers views of the mountains, ponds, and even the fall foliage. Learn how to plan for a vacation in Maine with my travel guide.
It would be terrible to leave Yosemite National Park off the list of best fall vacation destinations. Despite the fact this destination is perfect to see at any time of the year. Fall is considered the shoulder season for Yosemite. Less people wander around enjoying the views and seasonable weather.
Spend your days checking out the waterfalls. Walking amongst the giant sequoias. And hiking the trails while keeping an eye out for wildlife. If your family wants more thrills, then a rock-climbing adventure might be the best activity for your vacation.
Munich can be the perfect fall destination if you love being around thousands of people. Especially during the time when Oktoberfest is taking place. The dates change for this festival every year. However, it normally begins towards the end of September and ends in the beginning of October.
Oktoberfest is full of beer for sure. However, you will also find live music, games, and amusement rides.
This is the official Oktoberfest. It has been taking place for more than two hundred years. You can find other Oktoberfest festivals to attend throughout the world. So, if Munich doesn’t interest you, let me know and I will find a destination your family wants to visit.
The month of October is the best time to visit this fall vacation destination. The reason for this is that is when the International Balloon Fiesta takes place. This hot air balloon festival is nine days long. Each day is packed with fun activities for families like yours.
Your family can even take a hot air balloon ride if we plan far enough in advance.
These are the best fall family vacations to plan now. Of course, there are many others you can choose from. We can chat about which fall vacation destination would be perfect for your next family vacation.
