The East Coast of the United States is a year-round vacation destination. However, autumn is one of the best times to enjoy a cruise along the East Coast for a variety of reasons, including beautiful foliage, Thanksgiving and Halloween festivals, fewer crowds, and amazing off-season travel prices.
As you sail up the East Coast, you'll be surrounded by trees that burst into stunning colors of bright yellow, burnt orange, and flaming red as the leaves change color.
The East Coast is known for its classic fall foliage destinations like New Hampshire’sWhite Mountains and Acadia National Park in Maine. Both places offer incredible views around every corner as well as plenty of hiking trails for those who want active exploration.
If you prefer an urban vacation experience rather than a nature-based one, there are plenty of cities on both coasts that offer great attractions and activities for visitors during these months such as Boston'sFreedom Trail or New York City'sCentral Park Zoo & Conservatory.
