CNN: 9 Best Weekend Getaways: Top November Destinations

Escape to Loews Vanderbilt Hotel this November

Thanksgiving — and the busy travel period surrounding it — is typically the first thing that comes to mind for most when they think of the month of November.

However, the month is also a prime time for a long-weekend getaway with family or friends. That’s because of its position squarely in the “shoulder season” (in between high and low seasons) for many destinations around the US. This usually means thinner crowds in popular spots, cheaper accommodations and less-expensive flights to and from a given destination — excluding Thanksgiving weekend, of course.

Many places you can visit around the US and North America have finally settled into fall, which means temperatures have cooled significantly from the summer months but winter hasn’t arrived quite yet, so you’re likely to find relatively agreeable weather.

Now that you’re sold on a weekend escape, let’s take a look at some of the best places you can travel in November.

Nashville, Tennessee

Where to stay in Nashville

Nashville has experienced a hotel boom in recent months in order to meet demand. You’ll find that this Tennessee city has no shortage of exciting hotels to choose from for your long-weekend getaway.

Architecture buffs will love the Holston House Nashville, part of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt. Set in a stunning art deco building in the heart of downtown Nashville, this hotel embraces its past while giving guests a thoroughly modern experience.

Holston House is located within walking distance of the city’s Lower Broadway district, which has a plethora of live music venues, restaurants, bars, sports arenas and more. Back at the hotel, enjoy a rooftop cocktail or go for a dip at the property’s rooftop pool.

Located in Nashville’s West End adjacent to Vanderbilt University, the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel provides luxury accommodations within close proximity to — but not in the center of — Nashville’s main tourist attractions. This property offers multiple dining options, a fitness center with Peloton bikes and pet-friendly accommodations.
