Amazing Places to Visit in Autumn:
Check out my list of amazing places to visit this autumn. Whether you’re planning a weekend trip or looking for something budget-friendly, there’s so much to see and do in these amazing cities.
1. New York City
Autumn in NYC has always been my favorite time to be in the city. It’s a great time for carriage rides in Central Park and if you time your visit right the Brooklyn Bridge is not as crowded as it is in the summer time. There’s so many places to eat like Juicy Spot Cafe, check out the China Town location for the best rolled ice cream. If you’re into art and sculptures you can always visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for FREE! Yes, that’s right you can visit one of the most magnificent museums in the world for free. If you get your ticket at the entrance desk you pay “What you like”. I usually pay $1, when I’m feeling generous of course. Buying tickets online will cost you $25 for adults.
There’s so much to see and do in Boston during the fall season. My favorite thing to do is to spend time at the Public Library. From the books to the architecture, there’s so much to see including the beautiful gardens and cafe’s, perfect for reading a good book. You can also visit the Boston Commons and Boston Public Gardens, where this time of year you can still take the Swan Boats out around the duck pond. There’s an endless choice of places to eat in the center of Boston. From traditional Irish pubs to Starbucks for a quick cup of coffee. You won’t go hungry visiting Boston, there’s a place to eat on almost every corner.
3. Washington, D.C.
Did I mention Washington, D.C. was one of my favorite places to visit, especially since I was a young girl. And from the feedback I’ve received on previous posts about visiting Washington, D.C. it seems to be the place most of you enjoy as well. What I love most about D.C. of course is that most things are FREE! Visiting the nations monuments and museums will cost you nothing. Getting around is also very budget-friendly, although I find the area very walk-able. Looking for something good to eat? You head over to Nando’s Peri Peri for some juicy Portuguese chicken and rice located near China Town.
I fell in love with Stockholm on a short trip last year, but there’s so much to do in this beautiful city, especially if you’re short on time. Looking for a little Swedish history, head over to Gamla Stan (Old Town) where you can find some of the oldest streets in the city. You can find traditional Swedish food and the best pastries you’ll ever have in your life, all in one place. You can also head over to the Vasa Museum or the Swedish Royal Palace, for a little more on Sweden’s past and present. Looking for a great place to eat, check out the Grillska Huset Cafe, located right in the center of the square, where you can people watch all day while temperatures are still mild.
Harvest time in Montreal is filled with fun and festivals for everyone. There’s so much to do and see and temperatures are still mild enough for you to enjoy being outdoors admiring the fall foliage. There’s something so vibrant and historical about this city that makes me always want to come back for more. The food is always amazing, especially at Xavier Artisan where you can find the best espresso’s in North America. Head to Montreal this fall is you’re up for cultural events filled with food and art. If you’re looking for the occasional usual event like the Montreal Zombie Walk head to Montreal toward the end of October.
