Sneak in an Irish vacation before the end of the year, and you’ll be enjoying light crowds at famous landmarks that get absolutely packed in the summer high season: places like the Cliffs of Moher and the Lakes of Killarney which are better appreciated in solitude and quiet. A self-driving vacation gives you the opportunity to get off the motorways and onto Ireland’s rural back roads, where you’ll discover stunningly beautiful landscapes, lonely castles, ruined abbeys, and quaint villages. Get ideas for your trip with our Ireland blogs. Then, try our Ireland Fly & Drive with stays in Killarney, Galway and Dublin.
London in November doesn’t sound appealing at first, but consider this: the city’s incredible holiday illuminations are up, brightening streets with opulent light displays. Holiday shopping in London is easily more fun than holiday shopping in your local mall (or online, for that matter). And if you want to have fish and chips for Thanksgiving dinner, no one will judge you. More mushy peas, please! Check our United Kingdom blog category for more on things to do in London, than book your London vacation including airfare and your choice of hotels–fast!
Spain is full of great values once autumn hits, and Thanksgiving week is no exception.
