The long, warm, sultry summer days may be gone where you live, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit back and take it without a fight. No, you can have those days again. In fact, they are just a click or two away.
Yes, there are places in the world where the days are perfect and time is an afterthought. Here is a list of a few of our favorites for autumn 2017. Read on and start planning your magical getaway.
Grand Cayman Island
As cool turns to cold and sunny days start being replaced with gray drabness, it is natural for your mind to wander to warm pristine beaches with refreshing tropical breezes. There are certainly a lot from which to choose, though finding the right one can make all the difference. Many are overrun with tourists or even not as beautiful as they once were. That’s why Grand Cayman Island springs to mind immediately. This tropical paradise of white, sandy beaches and azure-blue waters offers something for every traveler. Whether it’s basking in the warming, endless sun or working up a salty sweat participating in one of any number of watersports, this island has it all. When you get tired of those opportunities, you’ll have limitless dining, shopping and sightseeing destinations at your disposal. In addition, it is also the perfect place for couples and families.
Sure, it takes a bit of time to get Down Under, but this amazing, diverse country offers it all. From the cosmopolitan cities of Melbourne and Sydney to historic and coastal Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth to the mind-bending Outback to world-class wine country, your visit here will be unforgettable. Don’t forget, also, that while the Northern Hemisphere’s temperatures are plummeting, things are just getting warmed up in the Southern Hemisphere, making an autumn visit here even more desirable.
Is there ever a bad time to visit this diverse, picturesque, tropical paradise? No, but there are some times that are better than others, and autumn ranks high on that list. Because there are so many reasons to visit this island-chain state, from sunning and surfing to volcano trolling and coffee-plantation touring, Hawaii can be overrun with tourists at times. Not so in the autumn, when crowds thin and prices dip, meaning you can get there for less and have more of Hawaii to yourself. Need any more convincing?
As you can see, now is the perfect time to put one of these amazing destinations, or any other, in your upcoming travel plans.
