Other than the fall in prices, there are plenty of other reasons why autumn is a great time to visit the US.
(PRWEB UK) 25 July 2014
Globehunters has announced a variety of USA special offers for autumn 2014. The UK online travel agent will be offering money saving promotions on holidays and flights to a range of US destinations including New York, Orlando and Boston. Other than the fall in prices, there are plenty of other reasons why autumn is a great time to visit the US.
Nowhere does Halloween like the US and there will be lots of macabre celebrations across the country. New York is no exception and October 31st sees the Village Halloween parade wind through the East Village. What sets this apart from the usual New York parades is that the public can participate by joining the procession in their own costumes.
In Orlando, Universal Studios will be running its annual series of Halloween Horror Nights from mid-September until the big night itself. For younger children – and the more easily scared – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party runs from September 1st and combines trick or treating with light-hearted Halloween parades.
Autumn is a particularly good time for visiting northern US cities like New York and Boston. Temperatures hover around the 20°C mark during September and October, perfect for exploring these fascinating cities without the humidity – and crowds - of summer and before the mercury plummets in winter.
Florida is mild even in winter and the autumn months lack the humidity and afternoon downpours of the peak summer season. Orlando’s theme parks are emptier than in the summer, which means shorter queues for the most popular rides.
Other Special Events
Oktoberfest may not be the first thing that springs to mind at the mention of the USA but the German beer festival is widely celebrated in the States. New York has numerous beer halls that celebrate the festival and they’ll also be celebrating in Boston, where the Harvard Square Oktoberfest is always a popular option.
In New York, the annual Columbus Day Parade is a lower key alternative to the sometimes overwhelming larger parades in the city. This takes place on October 13th on a US national holiday and features over 35,000 participants every year.
