Movies about islands always seem to take place in the summer. Yet for many travelers, fall is a much better time to visit an island destination. The air might be a tad more brisk, but you can avoid the crowds that otherwise plague popular restaurants and venues in the summer, you’ll have the beaches all to yourself, and cost for travel and accommodations are usually cheaper.
In short, just because the season most associated with an island vacation has come and gone doesn’t mean you should avoid an island vacation. From Florida’s Marco Island to Kauai, these are the US islands that you should visit in fall.
