Having been Florida Porsche dealers for quite a while now, we know that many people look forward to taking a vacation during autumn. Given the luxury brand we represent, we naturally think that’s because people are eager to jump behind the wheel of a Porsche car like a 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera and head out of town.

While thoughts like that are enough for us to want to hit the road, AAA reports that many Americans are motivated to travel during autumn because they can enjoy several benefits that they sometimes can’t during the year’s other seasons. Travelers often benefit from fewer crowds during the fall, for instance. They also enjoy more comfortable weather and they can typically score greater value for the money they put into their trips.

“Savvy travelers can often find lower prices on everything from airfare and hotels to cruises and vacation packages, as travel companies offer incentives to fill their vacancies during the fall,” said Bill Sutherland, AAA senior vice president, Travel and Publishing.

AAA expects more than one in four Americans to take a vacation during the fall this year. Out of the 28 percent of Americans who’ll vacation this autumn, more than 60 percent of them will take a road trip sometime between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

What do people typically do during their autumn getaways? Attending fall festivals, visiting federally funded and state sponsored parks, and viewing fall foliage are all popular activities among those who travel during the fall.
