Wake Up With Al: Shoulder Season Values
Travel + Leisure’s Sarah Spagnolo shares four destinations with affordable prices after Labor Day. Check out the video here.
1. Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Portsmouth is a charming town with an artisanal feel and an independent spirit—plus delicious seafood! The historic Wentworth By The Sea is a top choice for its recently renovated restaurant Salt, grand interior spaces, and incredible landscaping, plus an outdoor pool with marina views.
Price: $229 a night. Book now.
2. Montauk, New York
The best time to head to “the End,” as locals call it, is in the fall, when the weather still sparkles and the crowds have cleared out. Montauk Yacht Club, right on the water, has a classic sense of style, with blue-and-white rooms, tennis courts, and a spa.
Price: $239 a night. Book now.
3. Park City, Utah
It’s not ski season yet, which means that prices at the alpine-chic Washington School House are still affordable. Fall is a great time to visit Utah: there’s the bright fall foliage, crisp weather, and lots of outdoor activities from rock climbing to hiking.
Price: From $295 a night. Book now.
4. San Diego, California
Late summer and early fall in San Diego promises warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. Make the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort your home base for access to water sports (kayaks, pontoons, stand-up paddle boards) and an outdoor fire pit.
