Fall is a great time to travel when the summer rush is over. There are so many great ways to do the fall leaf peep, one is sure to fit into your budget and lifestyle. If you have promised yourself to take a changing of the foliage tour as one of the top 100 things on your retirement travel plans, it's not too late to get started. Of course, this may be a regular pilgrimage but you may want to do something different this time around.
Mature travelers are playing it smart these days. They are traveling in groups, and you can travel with people with common interests or people with diverse interests.
You may travel with a group of scrap bookers and collect leaves to commemorate your trip in a scrapbook.
Some may collect photographs and share them on line with children and grandchildren.
Others may film a falling leaf and share your changing of the foliage trip on YouTube.
You could celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a renewal of marriage vows on this colorful trip and bring family along to share this milestone.
You could even pick a spot for a wedding or engagement--there are many beautiful spots for "second-time-around" ceremonies.
Your fellow travelers can be church members you've gathered up for a fun motor coach ride through the Northeast. You can take one of the many New England cruises with accommodations equal to those on the high seas and invite your sorority sisters and/or fraternity brothers. This could be a great time to get together with people you've met online but never face-to-face.
There are fall foliage tours in several parts of the United States as well as Canada. This gives you a wide choice of places to go. It allows you to take a tour near your home or travel a little further and see someplace you've never been before.
You can go for it like the characters in the move "The Bucket List" and enjoy travel plans with a theme. Do it now!
