|places to visit on the east coast of U.S.|
Where you travel depends primarily on what you want to do, though the Northeast and East Coast regions are unarguably some of the best places to travel in October in the US because of the variety of attractions and things to do on offer. The post below should give you a good idea of where to go and things to see and do in the Northeast and the East Coast.
Leaf Peeping Northeast United States
If you’re a leaf-peeping enthusiast and want to experience the fall foliage, you’ll find that the Northeast region of the United States is one of the best places to travel in October in the US as the fall colors are in full swing. The Northeast region includes the New England States (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut); and the Mid-Atlantic States (New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York).

By the way, if you aren’t already planning a fall foliage trip for October, you may want to reconsider not leaving it for the last minute as you’ll find that most lodgings and accommodation options will be booked up well in advance…Therefore do plan ahead folks!
If you aren’t planning to do leaf-peeping in the Northeast and want to avoid the crowds then, you may want to skip popular fall foliage areas such as the White Mountain region in northern New Hampshire, the coastal areas of New Jersey, the Adirondacks and Catskills in upstate New York, the Green Mountains region in southern Vermont, the Hartford and Litchfield areas in Connecticut and the coastal areas of southern Maine.
Northeastern United States: City Vacation
If you’re looking for a city vacation where you can see and do lots, you’ll find that the cities of Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City are some of the best places to travel in October in the US.

Mid-Atlantic/ Southeastern Coast
The East Coast is undoubtedly, one of the popular vacation destinations in the US, and one of the best places to travel in October in the US for an inexpensive beach vacation. The East Coast is also a dream destination for road trippers because of the I-95 which runs along most of the Atlantic coast and passes through pristine scenery, stunning stretches of coast and attraction-rich cities such as Richmond VA, Fayetteville NC, Florence SC, Savannah GA, Jacksonville FL, St Augustine FL, West Palm Beach FL, and Miami Florida.

If you’re looking to hit the coast for a bit of beach action, you’ll find that the East Coast is also one of the best places to travel in October in the US for an inexpensive beach vacation. Destinations such as the Outer Banks in North Carolina are still warm enough for a beach vacation and the best thing is that you’ll find plenty of cheap accommodation, and hardly any crowds.
As far as warmer beach destinations, Key West in the Florida Keys is another of the best places to travel in October in the US for a balmy and relaxing vacation enjoying a bit of fishing and sampling tasty local cuisine.
Key West is truly a joy to explore as everything is pretty much within easy distance and you can get around everywhere on a bike, segway or scooter, which are the best ways to get around in the island anyhow. Mind you, if you’re visiting Key West in late October (between the 21st and 30th), you should know that Fantasy Fest will be in full swing...and that means lots of partying around and nudity of course!
