Have you taken a trip to see the Fall Foliage around the country? Don’t miss out!
Isn’t fall a wonderful time? There’s a certain magic to the way everything seems to change before your eyes. Yes, we know the science behind why leaves turn from green to red, yellow, and orange, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is a truly amazing sight to behold. At GotoBus, we love everything about fall: the changing leaves, the cool breezes, the delicious pies (are you an apple or a pumpkin?). Since the weather isn’t too hot or too cold, we think it’s the perfect time for a weekend getaway to explore the great outdoors and snap some photos of the colorful forests. We have routes to cities all over the country and parts of Mexico at low prices that are good for any budget, and we know the best places to soak up the beauty of Fall Foliage around the country!
Experience Northeast Fall Foliage like no other
There is no better region to see fall foliage than the Northeast. With so much to do in cool cities like New York and Boston, it’s easy to forget that the rest of the region is filled with mountains and hills that are great for hiking. Even on the drive from The Big Apple to Beantown, you’ll be able to see a vibrant display of New England’s fall colors. If you’ve never been up to Boston in the fall, this is your chance to do it for an unbeatable price! The Middlesex Fells Reservation is a state park located in Medford, just north of the city, and it’s perfect for a daytime hike among the fall foliage. If you want to stay in the city, you can still see the beauty of the changing leaves on the banks of the Charles River. A good opportunity to do this is the Head of the Charles boat race, scheduled this year for the weekend of October 22nd and 23rd. Another trademark of the fall is Oktoberfest, a seasonal celebration that started in Germany in the 1800s. These days, these festivals are held all over the world. It’s a great time to grab a beer and a bratwurst with your friends. While you’re in town to see the fall foliage, head to the Harpoon Brewery, which is celebrating its 28
These days, these festivals are held all over the world. It’s a great time to grab a beer and a bratwurst with your friends. While you’re in town to see the fall foliage, head to the Harpoon Brewery, which is celebrating its 28th annual Oktoberfest. This year, the event is scheduled for September 16th from 11:00 am -11:00 pm. The Night Shift Brewing will be hosted at
87 Santilli Hwy, Everett, Massachusetts 02149. Try their delicious Pumpkin UFO beer, a seasonal specialty! To see the gorgeous fall foliage in the area, book your bus tickets from New York to Boston, starting at just $9 one-way!
Appreciate the beauty of Autumn on the West Coast!
Just because you’re on the West Coast doesn’t mean you won’t be able to appreciate the beauty of autumn! California is home to breathtaking redwood trees that grow to unbelievable heights. The northern part of the state, especially around the San Francisco area, can be a great place to see these as well as species of tree. This area is also a perfect destination if you want to enjoy the sights of fall, but don’t want to risk it getting too chilly. The weather stays relatively warm and dry, making it an excellent time to visit places like Yosemite National Park, one of the most visited nature reserves in the country, and Muir Woods, where you’ll be able to see those redwoods that we were just talking about. Why not get some camping gear and spend a few nights living in the middle of one of these amazing parks? Some people just aren’t made to sleep outside, though. Not to worry: there’s no shortage of festivals planned in San Francisco for the month of October. Litquake is a showcase of the Bay Area’s local writers, scheduled for October 6. You can attend any number of readings, film screenings, literary discussions and more all over the city. Book your bus tickets from Los Angeles to San Francisco, which start for as little as $18 one-way.
Chicago is the main hub of the Midwest, making it the perfect access point to see the fall foliage around the Great Lakes. From here, you can get to the region’s hidden gems, like Columbus, Ohio. Though it doesn’t get mentioned as much as a getaway destination, there is so much to do in this under-hyped city. To join in on the fun, you should book your tickets from Chicago to Columbus, since they only start at $40 one-way. They’ve got a bunch of fall festivals planned already, like their own Oktoberfest from September 21 to October 1 that celebrates the rich German heritage of the city. If you’re in need of a good fun, Columbus is filled with events to be held in the month of October. The city’s local comedy scene is on the rise, so if you’re a fan of sketch, improv, or standup comedy, this is a great way to scout some future talent for cheap! Comedy festivals aren’t your only options, either; there are plenty of other themes to mach anyone’s interest, so you can browse through a list of all the local Columbus festivals to find the perfect one for you.
