FALLLet’s face it, summer is pretty much over. With fall sports beginning and school shopping filling up the weekends, the only full summer weekend left will be Labor Day. So does this mean you should force your vacation time within the next 3 week? No, in fact save your money for a vacation that will be cheaper and more efficient–a fallcation. In Massachusetts, fall is one of the most beautiful seasons to take in the landscape and sites of the historic part of New England. Here are your top places to visit Massachusetts on a budget in the fall. 

The Cape:

You can’t have a Massachusetts vacation without spending time on the Cape. Spend the night at a seaside bed and breakfast like Chatham Gables Inn to garner the full experience of a Cape Cod fantasy visit. Try not to go out for every meal, save on costs for lunch so you can spend on a fabulous seafood meal for dinner.


One of the oldest and greatest cities in the United States will take more than one day to explore and experience. Instead of staying within the city, which can be pricey, stay outside the city at a hotel or camp at a national park. This way you can drive or shuttle into the city without paying prices for a hotel downtown. Make sure to hit all the historic sites while your in town.

Patriots Game:

Fall season is football season in Massachusetts and everyone’s favorite team is the Pats. Only 22 miles southwest of Boston, Gillette Stadium is easy to travel to on the highway and you’ll be in the neighborhood anyways. You can purchase single game at relative prices on StubHub or early on the team website. Taking in a Pat’s game is a great way to enjoy the best of Massachusetts in the fall and there’s not a bad seat in the house.


Check out the plethora of fall related festivals throughout the state. Take your pick from music, art, scallops, applse, and Octoberfest to name a few. Experiencing a local celebration is a great way to learn about  the cultural traditions and have fun while saving money.


Experience the beautiful colors of the trees and small towns by driving through the back country of Massachusetts. You’ll fall in love with the rustic beauty of the villages and historical significance of the land. Plus spending time in the small towns is cheaper than spending every day in the big city or at the Cape.
