Show your true colours this fall with your deserving dude in your dream destination. Whether your taste is a European winery, an East Coast rendezvous or an escape to beach haven, read on to get inspired by friendly fall flight ideas.
Fall in Love with Europe
Imagine yourself in a Chanel cashmere cardigan amongst the French foliage of the Loire Valley. Sip on white wine as crisp as the autumn air and as sweet as the man you’re sharing the bottle with. Head south for more world class wineries as Tuscany trades in its tourists for truffles and Chianti. During the harvest season the hill towns provide a delicious and dreamy destination in Italy. Explore 13th century villas, hidden valleys and family farms while a beautiful backdrop of medieval spires pierce the Tuscan sky. Or for the ultimate in intimate holidays, head to Seville in the south of Spain. The Moorish architecture and 2000 year old streets drape a golden glow and romantic blush over the city. Tuck into one of many narrow passages, only accessible by foot, to walk hand in hand and kiss where no one’s looking.
North American Road Trip
Niagara on the Lake is rich in romantic restaurants, charming scenery and intimate inns. You can watch Ontario’s leaves change right before your eyes while on a horse drawn carriage riding through the historic streets. Follow the scent of apple, pear and pumpkin pies across Ontario and taste the many cheeses and wines the surrounding regions have to offer. Most Canadian provinces will have an abundance of earthly charms this season, Quebec and British Columbia’s famous farmers’ markets to boot! And if you and your beau can stand to be together in the car for hours at a time, a road trip through the East Coast of the United States provides a canopy of colours to drive through. New England is world famous for its fall foliage, where thousands of leaf lovers flock every year. Vermont is the perfect spot to snap photos with a brilliant background, where as Cape Cod is the place for more private pics; since the beaches are basically all yours. Warm up on a ferry ride with a cup of clam chowder before heading to Province Town for a romantic dinner for two. And no Halloween holiday is complete without real ghost stories, so don’t forget to check out Salem before leaving Massachusetts-home of the Salem Witchcraft trails of 1662.
Fall to Spring
If you still aren’t convinced that you can have a romantic vacation in autumn, skip the season all together and escape to sunnier destinations. New Zealand and Australia are in spring this season with budding flowers, blue skies and anticipating surfers. The climate can be much warmer and if a beach vacation is your dream fall getaway, it can be done. Tahiti and Hawaii are also safe choices when trying to escape the autumn climate but can spoil the romance by putting a dent in your finances; rather, opt for the Caribbean off-season to pursue sand and surf at a fraction of the cost.
