While some people’s plans for November travel involves an “over the river and through the woods” kind of journey, others are seeking out destinations to round out a year of adventure. Roamingtheusa.com, a travel site that bills itself as “the unofficial guide to America,” created a list of great destinations for November travel and luckily, we have glamping accommodations nearby to most! Based on weather, things to do, and holiday events, roamingusa.com, suggests the following:
Bend, Oregon: One reason Bend made the list is that the typical crowds of summer have all but disappeared come November.If you’re early in the month, you might still catch the last of the fall foliage color show. But, if the leaves are gone, the outdoor adventures are still here. Bend is great for hiking! Hike Tumalo Falls or check out the views at Pilot Butte State Scenic Viewpoint. The Bend Christmas Parade is set for Saturday, December 4, and for last-minute unique gifts, check out The Happy Campers Last-Minute Shopping Event featuring locally made gifts from pottery to jewelry. For your glamping consideration, try a yurt or cabin at Bend-Sunriver.
Key West, Florida: The waters are warm, the daytime temps range between 74 and 80 degrees, and there’s plenty to do in November here. November 12 promises to be a day of fun at the MOTE Marine Laboratory’s Ocean Fest (on Islamorada) that will feature touch tanks, animal experiences, live music, food, games, and other fun. Another great November event is The Big Pine and Lower Keys Island Art Festival, set for November 26. Of course, all the Keys have their own special island magic to offer so book a tiny house stay at Sunshine Key Tiny House Village or a waterfront colorful cottage at Fiesta Key and explore them all. Snorkel, stand-up paddle, take a ferry to Dry Tortugas National Park, enjoy quirky Key West, the beauty of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, or just soak up the sun on the beach at Sunshine Key.
Palm Springs, California: Palm Springs in November couldn’t be more perfect when it comes to weather – average rainfall is zero and the average daytime temperature a sunny 79 degrees with evening temps falling to a still-pleasant mid-60s. So, it’s no wonder there are plenty of special events planned during this time of year. For starters, there’s Village Fest, a regularly scheduled Thursday night street fair in downtown Palm Springs that features shopping, dining, and live music opportunities. Magic Lights of Coachella Valley, a drive-through holiday-themed light display, begins November 18 and the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens hosts their amazing holiday lights display beginning November 23. Other things not to be missed in the area include hiking in Joshua Tree National Park, a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and a visit to the Palm Springs Art Museum. Book a colorful cottage at Palm Springs in Palm Desert to be in the swing of all things Palm Springs.
San Antonio, Texas: Weather-wise, San Antonio enjoys daytime highs of 74 degrees in November, so that’s one reason to head to this Texas treasure. Things to do here include exploring the amazing River Walk, where you can shop, eat, and just enjoy walking along the river. There’s also the historic Alamo as well as several other missions you can tour, including Mission San Jose. Special events can include the Wurstfest, in nearby New Braunfels, which runs through November 13 and pays tribute to the area’s German culture, the Ford Holiday River Parade, scheduled for November 25, and underground caroling at Natural Bridge Caverns. Reserve a glamping cabin at Medina Lake to be near all the fun in San Antonio.
