Best Places to Visit in November

If the thought of winter weather and shorter, darker days has you feeling a little low, November is the perfect time to treat yourself to a little break away. Make the penultimate month of the year a good one with our suggestions on November holiday destinations.

Amsterdam Canal

1. Amsterdam

Christmas comes early in Amsterdam. The Dutch believe that Santa (Sinterklaas) lives in Spain rather than the North Pole. He arrives in Amsterdam by boat on the 17th November and then parades through the streets on a white horse. Around 400,000 people turn out to watch, all competing for cookies and sweets thrown into the crowd by Santa’s helpers, making Amsterdam a great place to visit in November.

The sunshine state basks in a warm climate all year round. The temperature rarely dips below 20°C. Florida has over 1,350 miles of coastline so get ready for sandy beaches. Orlando’s theme parks are a major draw for families (and big kids, too!). Hotels often offer attractive discounted rates, meaning potential savings and less time spent standing in line in the parks.
