Summer gets all of the credit for having the best festivals, but what about fall? The people who live in the Midwest generally experience short summers and like to stretch out outdoor activities as long as possible. That’s why there are so many fall festivals! Sure the temperatures aren’t as warm as summer, but it’s still not cold enough to keep Midwesterners inside. Check our CreditBox’s list of the best fall festivals to enjoy before winter hits!
Just because summer is coming to an end, doesn’t mean it’s the end of your vacation time for the rest of the year. In fact, some places are even better for fall travel than they would be in the summer! The temperatures might be too hot in the summer, but just right in the fall. Better yet, you will find cheaper flights and hotel accommodations because fall is generally an off-peak travel time. Have something to look forward to as school starts up again and the weather turns colder by booking one of these affordable vacation destinations that are sure to fit into your travel budget.
Summer is a great time to travel, and for good reason. The weather is great, school is out, and there are music and street festivals all over the world.
