FYI: Now's the Time to Book These Fall Weekend Getaways (They're Half-Price)

Summer might be the most popular season to travel, but if you're looking to save money, now is the time to plan a weekend escape. September marks the start of "shoulder season," the period in between a destination's low and high seasons when accommodation and transport are typically cheaper. Cost aside, it also means fewer crowds, shorter queues for tourist attractions, and no need to reserve restaurants months in advance. What's not to love?

Travel website Priceline recently crunched the numbers to find out which popular U.S. destinations are considerably cheaper to visit in fall. Its findings provide a handy weekend getaway guide: It turns out that hotels in coastal destinations like Montauk and Nantucket are roughly half-price in the cooler months, and scenic spots like Bend, Oregon, are slightly cheaper when the leaves start to change. Pack your bags—now's the time to book a fall weekend escape if you're traveling on a budget.
