Now that your kids are back in their dorms at college, why not sneak off to a romantic getaway with the one you love? With the changing of the season, there are plenty of cheap tickets available to many great destinations. Whether you want to get out into nature and explore the wilderness or relax on a white sandy beach, you're sure to find one of these destinations appealing:
Niagara Falls, Canada
The Canadian side of the falls is home to beautiful scenery, fun nightlife and relaxing hotels. Grab your passports and some cheap airline tickets to take advantage of this wonderful location before winter comes around. There are lots of romantic activities for couples to enjoy such as a walk by the falls in the moonlight or a delicious dinner in Skylon Tower's revolving restaurant.
Autumn in Niagara is an especially lovely time to visit because the foliage explodes with vibrant colors. You'll also be able to partake in a number of local events and festivals. How would you like to sample some local and foreign wines while carving a pumpkin with your special someone?
Does that cool nip in the air make you think of the snow and sleet around the corner? Extend your summer vacation by getting some cheap tickets to Hawaii. Forget about the changing seasons and relax on a beach with a tropical drink in hand. Avoid the densely population Waikiki beach and head to Lanikai beach instead. According to Port Aloha, Lanikai is cooled by gentle trade winds, so you can enjoy the warm weather without getting uncomfortable. The clear water is perfect for swimming and snorkeling, and if you're feeling adventurous, you can rent a kayak for a day among the gentle waves.
Santa Fe, New Mexico
If swimming doesn't interest you, but you'd still rather avoid the cool weather, head down to Santa Fe. The adobe Palace of Governors is beautiful reminder of the region's Spanish roots. Built in the 17th century, this museum features religious artifacts from the past 300 years. Art lovers can also visit the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, which holds over 3,000 works of art by the American modernist. Autumn is a great time to visit Santa Fe, because the temperatures typically stay between 70 and 80 degrees. So if you enjoy spending your time outdoors, you should take advantage of the region's gorgeous desert landscapes.
If the crisp autumn air invigorates you, consider getting some cheap tickets to Boulder, Colorado. There, you'll be able to breathe the fresh mountain air and partake in a local culture of fun and leisure. A walk along the Boulder Beer Trail will take you past twenty breweries, five wineries and four distilleries. Along the way, you can enjoy a flight of local brews and enjoy a satisfying meal between drinks. Autumn in Boulder is festival time - from September through November there are events celebrating the arts, literature, fashion, wine and music. You'll want to stay for weeks just to enjoy everything the city has to offer!
