3. Go abroad

There are quite a few destinations that are best seen in autumn. Some of them will stun you with their beauty, others will still give you the summer vibe. You should definitely visit:

  • Utrecht, Netherlands – Known for its beautiful canals, this town gets truly charming in the second half of the year. The trees become yellowish and orange and truly match the water and the architecture. It’s an excellent place for a romantic trip with your other half – don’t hesitate to visit Utrecht.
  • Seville, Spain – Seville is among the top summer vacation destinations, but sometimes its boiling weather might be simply too much. The mid-season temperatures often reach 40℃ (104℉) or above, making it an ideal place to spend most of the day on the beach, but not so great for sightseeing. But, if you are planning to go there in the autumn, it is completely different. The weather will be still nice enough to enjoy sunbathing, but navigating around the city’s museums and monuments won’t be that exhausting.
  • Belfast, Northern Ireland – If you are a fan of something slightly different, you might consider going to Belfast. In the autumn, the town and its surroundings are already on the verge of winter, creating a beautiful landscape. Enjoy the misty mornings, and hop on a sea safari – it’s worth it.

4. Go apple picking

Apple picking can be fun, and we don’t mean choosing an iPhone. Find the best apple orchards near you and get ready to grab tons of yummy apples. Finish up by making an apple pie – you’ll combine fun with a delicious dessert.
