For many travelers, fall is the perfect time for an excursion. You can enjoy the cooler temperatures, uncrowded destinations, and amazing autumn foliage. Of course, one still has to be aware of COVID guidelines, and plan smart travels. Whether it’s a golf weekend with a longtime client or a chance for some valuable family time, a short-haul flight getaway can set the tone for a great autumn.

Here are six domestic fall destinations to consider.

The most eye-pleasing destinations in the East

Asheville NC is a hub for both a thriving arts scene and exciting outdoor adventures. Enjoy some quiet reflection in one of the many galleries and museums in the Arts District. Or get recharged outdoors with fishing, rafting, biking, and hiking tours of the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains.

The rolling hills of Asheville offer stunning views, especially during the autumn season.

Travelers love the Berkshires, MA year-round, but the autumn is spectacular. A Stratos short-haul flight can get you away from the hustle of New York City to the wineries, galleries, and tranquility of the Berkshires. Stay at elegant country inns, enjoy a romantic picnic amidst the stunning fall colors, or take the family white-water rafting… the Berkshires can accommodate all tastes.

Burlington VT is a perennial favorite on the “see-this-autumn” travel lists. This vibrant city on the shores of Lake Champlain combines the best of old and new travel attractions. You will find charming farmers’ markets, historic sites, and abundant natural beauty. But the city has also encouraged growth with new bike paths, craft breweries, and sailing excursions. Burlington is happy to share its natural beauty with “leaf-peeper” guests who visit to enjoy Vermont’s extraordinary fall foliage.

The Western destinations worth planning for

September is the perfect time to enjoy the beauty of fall foliage in Jackson Hole.

Although summers never get swelteringly hot in Flagstaff AZ, most outdoor enthusiasts prefer the comfortable autumn temperatures. You can enjoy golf at one of the local courses, surrounded by fragrant ponderosa pines and breath-taking mountain views. Take a day trip to the Grand Canyon, go shopping for authentic Native American crafts, or rent a convertible and get your kicks on Route 66! Flagstaff is an easy 90-minute short-haul flight from Los Angeles.

Ski enthusiasts know Jackson Hole WY as a winter resort, but it is also a perfect fall destination.  Mountain biking, kayaking, rafting, and horseback riding are available for participants of all abilities.  Jackson Hole’s gorgeous resorts are open for spa weekends, fine dining, and a chance to decompress in magnificent natural surroundings. Book a Stratos Jet short-haul flight, and get ready to breathe in Wyoming’s pure mountain air.

Fall is the absolute best time to visit the wineries of Sonoma, CA. The county boasts 425 wineries, ranging from rustic rural to VIP exclusive. It is a wine lover’s and foodie’s nirvana. Of course, there is more to Northern California than wine. Explore the giant redwood forests, drive along the Pacific Coasts, or book a rejuvenating massage at one of the private spas and wellness centers in the region. As the county’s tourism website boasts, “Life opens up in Sonoma County.” Open yourself to new opportunities with a luxury private jet flight.
