Leaves in the East, Vines in the West: The Colorful Fall Travels

The arrival of Fall brings with it some cooler temperatures as well as some new reasons to visit the beautiful West and East Coasts of the U.S. and we would like to highlight the excitement of the wine harvest in Northern California and the beauty of fall’s foliage in the Northeast with tours and activities for every type of traveler.

West Coast: Wine Country in California 
Late summer leading into fall brings about the harvest season for the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma. Easily accessible from San Francisco, Viator has a selection of tours by train, helicopter bike, limo and more to help travelers sample award-winning wines, soak up the vineyard views, and learn about the art and science of winemaking.

East Coast: New York 
For visitors to the Northeast this time of year, the hills and valleys of New York State are set ablaze by the season’s magnificent foliage. Boats, helicopters and more bring the region’s visitors up close with the beautiful sights and savory smells of autumn in the East.
