SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Ticker®, a leading inspirational travel website, today announced that foliage is out this fall. In its place, the insiders at Travel Ticker have rounded up the top destinations to inspire travelers in each region of the country who are looking for a non-traditional getaway. Enjoying a unique vacation while avoiding high prices in the standard fall locales has never been easier!
"Whether it's New England for autumn or Mexico for spring break, each season there is always pressure on travelers to visit the most popular destinations. But this year, we're inspiring travelers to think outside of the box," said Barbara Messing, General Manager of Travel Ticker. "Fall is the perfect time to take advantage of fantastic deals and travel to somewhere unconventional at prices well below the peak season."
For the traveler looking for an exciting alternative to passively watching the leaves change this year, here are Travel Ticker's top regionally-specific fall getaways to help inspire an out of the ordinary vacation.
Go West, Young Man – And Keep Going
For travelers on the West Coast, Travel Ticker recommends taking a trip to an exotic locale like Thailand. Not only is it off season, meaning tourism is low and prices are even lower, but the country provides a perfect respite for those who feel like they missed out on the beach this summer.
Thailand: 9-day multicity trip w/air + top hotels, $1,049+- This trip to Thailand is now more affordable than ever. Get a flight, 4-star hotel stays, meals, and more with Gate 1's 9-day package for as little as $1,049. Valid for select departures, October 25, 2010-May 24, 2011.
For Midwesterners, Travel Ticker recommends foregoing the chilly weather and abundant amount of corn mazes for the nightlife, entertainment and luxury that only Las Vegas can offer. Bask pool side in the warm sun and enjoy some beautiful desert scenery all within a reasonable budget.
Las Vegas Strip: up to 30% off AAA Four Diamond stay, $66+ - Located on the Las Vegas Strip, the AAA Four Diamond Mandalay Bay just lowered rates to as little as $66. That's up to 30% off your Sin City stay. Valid October 1-December 31.
Swapping Coasts: East Meets West
For the consumers on the East Coast, Travel Ticker suggests swapping Newport, RI for Newport, CA. Fall is one of the most affordable times of year to score a fantastic cross country deal.
