Cape Cod In The Fall

cape_codMajority of Cape Cod travel gurus concur that the best time to make a visit here is during fall. When you look at reasons why, it all adds up. The huge crowds that flock to Cape Cod for summer vacation are not here anymore. There are only a handful of people, though not entirely deserted. This is the time during which crowd-averse visitors’ troop to the peninsula for the time of their lives. Motivation also comes from another angle; all hotels bring down their rates in order to attract more people and to attend to the dwindling visitor numbers.

You can take a peaceful stroll or step into one of the restaurants and grab a bite. Cape Cod is warm during fall, the days are sunny and the nights cool. The setting is ideal for weddings.

Great Fall Destinations

fall_cape_codAs you very well know, fall comes between summer and winter. It is time to start winding up the hot season and start prepping for winter. Autumn would also be an appropriate word. The fact that trees are shedding their leaves and the holiday season seems to come to an end does not mean that you cannot get places to visit. In the Northern regions, fall comes either in August or September. Anyways, you do not have to respond to the gloomy skies or chilly days by watching TV indoors. You can sample some tour destinations that are perfect for autumn.

Maui Island in Hawaii

The island has most of what you need for a fall vacation. There are miles of spectacular beaches, cultural diversity, spectacular views and a history to relive. The best time to visit Maui is from September to November. The weather at this time is great. In addition, there are few tourist crowds meaning you can get good offers on accommodation, car hire and entry fees to parks, museums and other places of attraction. There are also a number of cultural festivities that take place at this time of the year.

New York City

Fall is a wonderful time to visit New York. There are mild temperatures and beautiful shades of light that blend perfectly with the skyscrapers. You can take romantic walks with your mate or witness the magical parades of Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Cape Cod

Cape Cod is less crowded during the months of October and November. Cape Cod hotels and other amenities are also less expensive. Their rates drop considerably. In addition, the weather is relatively warm allowing you to visit and enjoy outdoor attractions.  The fall tourism season is ideal for an individual, groups or families that want to enjoy themselves on a budget.  Come October or November the beaches are nearly deserted. You can have fun under quiet and less crowded surroundings. The weather is bit chilly for anyone desiring to go for a swim. You had better stick to visiting attractions.

San Francisco

Get to ride on cable cars, treat your taste buds to amazing cuisine, and take in some sunshine on San Francisco bay. You could also catch views of the Alcatraz and the Golden Bridge, both popular among tourists. There is also a variety of cafes and dining places you can visit as well as enjoying the architecture. The crowds thin out during fall giving you chance to an adventure at a price you can afford. Use public transport instead of a hired car. You could also buy a pass that allows you to ride on all public transport. Majority of eating establishments close at 10 p.m. or thereabout so you should plan to eat your dinner early.

Top Restaurants In New York City

new_york_city_restaurantNowhere else in America, but in Manhattan, in New York City, are there such a fantastic array of cultures, classes, and traditions coexisting, sometimes intermingling, in such a small geographic space. This very unique demographic blend is perhaps best reflected by the city’s diverse array of restaurants, food trucks, street side vendors, markets, and bars and pubs. Virtually every ethnic cuisine is represented in New York City, with many restaurants offer unique fusions of oft-disparate influences, found nowhere else. In not many other places but Manhattan, do some of our nation’s richest 1%, and poorest 1%, sleep oftentimes less than a mile apart. From a street taco that’ll run you $1.25, to a $1250 ice cream sundae, laced with gold flakes and rare imported truffles, there is food for virtually everyone.

Despite New York City being such a notorious culinary hub, it is oftentimes incredibly difficult for restaurants to survive. Street-level rent in prime spaces can end up costing upwards of 95% of the restaurant’s income. Competition is unbelievably fierce. Consumers are highly discerning and picky, and one lukewarm review in a respected publication can mean certain doom. Yet, despite this, some restaurants have managed to stick around for a good deal of time, earning the respect of locals, and a spot as a historic fixture on the otherwise ever-changing landscape of Manhattan.

Some of them, delis–renowned for their unique flavors of fresh cut meat, typically served in a signature flagship sandwich of some sort–are among New York City’s most famous. They owe their fame to consistent quality, affordability (so locals and tourists alike, of any stripe, can enjoy their food), and oftentimes unique styles of service. Some of the most famous include Katz’s Delicatessen (made famous by a particularly uncomfortable scene from Nora Ephron’s When Harry Met Sally), Carnegie Deli (55th and 6th, famous for their cheesecake and towering pastrami sandwiches, leave your credit cards at home, because they only take cash), and Artie’s Delicatessen (82nd and Broadway, they’re adored the city over for their spiced pastrami and savory latkes).

On the other side of the dining spectrum, are New York City’s famous fine dining establishments. Everyone from vapid socialites in your favorite F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, to the most recent Woody Allen feature frequents them, so why shouldn’t you? Establishments such as Delmonico’s (originally a small pastry shop, it was colonial NYC’s first formal restaurant; it’s sometimes credited with being at the vanguard of a la carte dining), Lutece (known as innovators in the preparation of foie gras, being one of the first restaurants to pair the tender duck meat with rich chocolatey confections), Rector’s (located in the theater district, their no-frills approach to French cuisine, as well as ethnic fusions (curried lamb crown, Chinese black bean mussels, etc.) well ahead of their time, secured their place in NYC history as one of the foremost democratizers of fine cuisine.).

Every day a restaurant stays in good shape in New York City, they edge just a little closer to becoming an iconic destination, in what is arguably already America’s most iconic destination. In “The City That Never Sleeps,” it might make sense for NYC’s next top restaurant to be a quaint 24-hour East Village brunch spot. Or, since NYC’s restaurant scene has always favored innovation, it may be one of many increasingly trendy mobile food trucks or pop-up restaurants, whose slim hours and constantly changing location set them apart. Only time, along the rugged road of running a restaurant in New York City, will tell.
