In our opinion, October is underrated. USA October holidays – even more so. If you’re ready to commit to winter, the dramatic Kenai fjords of Alaska and snowy slopes of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains National Park have you covered during this secret season. However, if sun-soaked beaches and balmy breezes are still calling, a road trip down the famous Route One in California (the so-called Golden State), through the quirky coastal towns of Monterey and Santa Barbara to the modern metropolis of Los Angeles, is guaranteed to leave you feeling categorically cool (just not in temperature). The East Coast
will also be waiting with open arms if an autumnal October is what you’re after. Think crisp walks through New York’s Central Park, ice skating under the Rockefeller Center, and parading through the West Village with their annual Halloween Parade. Treat youngsters to the Meatpacking District’s ‘Treats in the Streets’ or venture out of the city to Pennings Orchard to turn your handpicked apples into cider. Beyond the bright lights of NYC, there’s historic Boston and the scenic hinterland of New England, where the extensive forests boast spectacular kaleidoscopes of crimsons, coppers and deep yellows during the autumn months. With so many diverse landscapes to choose from, USA October holidays are sure to become a break you never tire of.

The beauty of America (aside from its invention of the cheeseburger) is its size and diversity. The charming yet energetic East Coast cities of Boston and New York make for the perfect long weekend, while the dramatic plains of the American West promise to impress on an unforgettable two-week adventure as you cavort with cowboys and run wild through Yellowstone National Park.
If you need to be further convinced why USA October holidays remain a best-kept secret, look no further than California’s Napa Valley, one of the world’s premier wine regions. Bathe yourself in the Golden State’s glow as you tour the region’s myriad vineyards. Sample the finest wines in the company of their producers, cycle along the Vine Trail (we suggest doing this before the wine tasting begins) and treat your taste buds to a farm-to-fork feast overlooking the verdant vineyards. If adventure beckons, take advantage of the West Coast’s Mediterranean climate and feel the breeze in an off-road 4x4 drive across Death Valley. Capture the moment with one of our GoPros as you kayak along the waters of Mono Lake, whale watch off the coast of Monterey or try your luck spotting celebrities at their favourite haunts off Melrose Avenue.
Whether you’re hoping to steal a few more hazy days of summer in New Orleans’ French Quarter to a soundtrack of the city’s famous melodic jazz tones, chase the sun dappled surf of the Florida Keys or get to grips with the winter chill in Chicago (nicknamed the Windy City), USA October holidays have it all. And, with private transfers, a local Concierge service and a family activity pack from the aficionados of fun at Sharky and George, you are guaranteed a restful getaway before the coming Christmas months. What are y’all waiting for?
