• Find the best beach getaways for fall

    2013-09-11

    Summer may be over, but that doesn't mean travelers have missed out on trips to the beach. In fact, the autumn season can be one of the best times to head to coastal destinations - provided jet-setters know where to look for a potential vacation spot. Those who are trying to plan family travel trips may find that some of the quiet beach towns around the U.S. offer a spectacular setting and top-notch amenities for visitors well into the fall.

    Here are some of the most sought-after destinations travelers may want to consider for their fall getaway:

    Nantucket, Mass.
    In the summer, Nantucket, an island off the coast of Massachusetts, is a hub of activity and a tourist hot spot. However, as soon as fall arrives the trickle of visitors slows - but the stunning scenery of the island and its quaint town center remain. There are few things more relaxing than strolling down the cobblestone streets or browsing the selection of goods at the boutiques throughout the island, and if you're lucky enough to be there on a particularly warm day, the beach offers a perfect escape.

    Galveston, Texas
    Texas may not be the first place that springs to mind when you think about heading to the beach, but Galveston offers a prime location on the Gulf Coast and warm weather that lasts well into the fall season. You'll be able to enjoy the shoreline throughout autumn, with warm temperatures lasting into October, as well as several festivals and community events that take place throughout the town. Some travelers love to take bike rides through Galveston's historic or art districts to pass the time.

    Laguna Beach, Calif.
    California is known for its breathtaking coastal views and perfect climate, and both of these are full display when you plan a trip to the iconic Laguna Beach. Boasting a 7-mile stretch of pristine beachfront property, this laid-back town is ideal for travelers who want to surf or work on their tans in the fall. Nearby shops and art galleries offer plenty of activities to fill an itinerary if a traveler tires of soaking up the sun. Other options, such as day trips to major nearby cities like Los Angeles or San Diego, are also viable options for visitors who want to experience all of the best parts of life in the Golden State.
