Some people wait till September to head off on vacation because its after the height of the tourist season and before everything slows down for winter. There are some great places to visit during September.
One great place to head is the Galapagos Islands because September is one of the coolest and driest months and there are fewer tourists visiting. Furthermore, this is the month when many birds are nesting including the Albatross and the Sea Lions are mating. Furthermore, one can enjoy watching whales, dolphins, or penguins.
If you don't want to travel that far, check out Greenville, South Carolina in the Blue Mountain foothills because humidity is dropping and temperatures drop to the 80's during the day and the 60's at night. In mid September the university hosts a craft parade followed by a huge food festival with chefs, cooking demonstrations, tastings, parties, and live music. Furthermore, there are walking tours, a park with summer movies, and so much more.
What about visiting Havr, Croatia during September. Havr is an island located in the Adriatic Sea. By September, the number of tourists has decreased while the weather has gotten nicer. In addition to wonderful beaches, and a history dating back to 6000 BC, this island also offers a music festival highlighting Croatian music for most of September. Furthermore, Havr is well known for its wine industry and one can take a tour to learn more about it.
Still prefer staying in the United States, then head for Fort Collins, Colorado where you can find more than 20 craft breweries. The town has its Historic Old Town area filled with all sorts of restaurants and stores including candy stores, and a vintage trolly running through the area. In addition to having a strong cultural scene with music, theater, and museums, the town is known for its variety of outdoor actives. Another great thing about Fort Collins is that it is not that far from the Rocky Mountain National Park and its not far from the Denver International Airport.
Check out the island of Santorini, Greece, located in the Aegean Sea. It has beautiful cliffs, wineries, villages, photographic areas, and friendly people. Aside from great weather, the number of tourists is diminishing, making it a nicer place to visit. Due to its volcanic nature, the soil is perfect for producing well known wines. In addition, there is a ancient village destroyed by the volcano yet preserved by it. There is also a food festival hosted by one of the hotels.
If you've never been to the Florida Keys, September is the perfect month to go. The number of tourists have diminished significantly, temperatures are dropping but its the perfect time to indulge in water activities such as swimming, kayaking, fishing, etc. This is also the best time to rent a car and drive the overseas highway.
So if you have a couple weeks off and haven't decided where to go yet, check these places out or mark them down for next year. Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear. Have a great day.
