VINAS! It’s officially pumpkin-spice-and-everything-nice season! Time to pull out your trendy flannels and wool sweaters and begin weaning yourself off of vacation mode and into full-blown fall mode. The best way to do that is a festive trip with all your fave vinas before the winter chills really set in! Consider these ideas with your gals over some hot apple cider!
Nothing is better than a good getaway to the spa for a day. . . or even a week! Gather your vinas and enjoy a day at the nearest spa. Feel refreshed by getting a hot stone massage or seaweed wrap! Going to a spa is the best way to revamp yourself and get ready for the new season upon us.
PUMPKIN FESTIVAL OR OKTOBERFEST CELEBRATION
There are plenty of great fall pumpkin festivals across the world, so don’t miss out! TBH, who doesn’t love a good pie eating contest or pumpkin carving event? Mock Oktoberfest celebrations are a fun fall event to attend, too! They have endless beer, German music, and more pretzels than you can imagine. Look for local Ocktoberfests in your area or if you are adventurous, book a flight to Munich between September 22nd and October 7th to partake in the real fun!
That’s right, vinas. If you thought music festivals were over after Coachella and Lollapalooza, think again. There’s a huge market for fall music festivals, too! If you’re into good music (who isn’t?!), big scarves, and a new pair of Timberlands, this is the place for you. Get your tickets (even if you don’t know any of the bands on the lineup) because this is sure to be one of the best experiences of the whole season! Trust us.
CIDER MILL & WINE TASTING
Who doesn’t like cider? Who doesn’t like wine? Ok, in the rare event that you answered “me” to either one of those, don’t worry. They have coffee and beer too. Go on a wine, cider, and drink tasting day that includes food and fall festivities, or book a hotel and make a whole weekend out of it! Cheers!
WARDROBE REVAMP TRIP
This is so critical. A mall trip is the dream vacation, in my personal opinion. With colder weather quickly approaching, you and your vinas need to stay up to date with the latest fall trends this season. Plus you can even snag some of the summer sale items and keep them for next year–what’s not to love?
Horseback riding, hiking in the mountains, hot-tubbing after morning yoga, going on hay rides, and canoeing down a river, going to a dude ranch is the bread and butter to a perfect autumn getaway. There’s a little something for everyone here.
Forget cruises! Sit back and enjoy a journey that will take you through some of the most breathtaking views this world has to offer. Cozy up with a good book and watch the leaves change colors from wherever you may be going. Check out the hundreds of dates and locations these tours go on!
Whether it’s a cozy cottage at a lake or a tent in the middle of the woods, make a bonfire because where there’s a bonfire, there are s’mores. This is a super chill, budget-friendly option that basically pays for itself once each vina chips in. And if you’re aiming westward, stop to take a dip in one of the many hot springs at various locations across the country! All you need is a big blanket, marshmallows, and a couple scary stories to share around the fire and you are sure to have the time of your life!
There is no age limit to the magic that Disney can provide, so head to Disneyland or Disney World for their fall events! This is like the ultimate haunted house, magic adventure, and theme park experience all in one place. Not to mention, this is a totally family-friendly option (for all you mommy vinas out there) and even a great girl’s trip or romantic getaway! Put on your Mickey Mouse ears and get outta here!
