Where to go on holiday in November

If the thought of 2019 coming to a close 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 destinations.

Amsterdam Canal

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.

Florida Sunshine State

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.

Cinque Terre Italy

Cinque Terre, Italy 
If you love colourful houses, rustic charm, the smell of Italian treats wafting out of doorways and want to experience a slower pace of life then Cinque Terre is for you. Combining great food, nature, the ocean, and a million photography opportunities, Cinque Terre is the ideal spot for a winter break. It gets busy in the summer months but, during the off-season, it is relatively crowd-free. Although the temperatures are not as consistent in November (highs of around 15°C), as long as you have some sunshine you’re all set.

Los Angeles Griffith Observatory

Los Angeles
November is an excellent month for a quick escape to LA before the holiday madness begins. Los Angeles is a metropolis of attractions. Hollywood is abuzz with bars and stars, the Museum of Contemporary Art dazzles, and Santa Monica is heaven for beach-breakers. November is one of the best months for surf in Southern California too.

Tenerife Beach

The Canary Islands are Europe’s most reliable options for winter sun, rarely dipping below 20°C. Tenerife, the largest of the islands, is famous for the beach hotels of the Costa Adeje and Playa de las Americas. But it also deals in volcanic beauty and wonderful hiking trails on its vast central peak, Mount Teide – as well as superb restaurants in its capital, Santa Cruz.

Hamburg Canal

Sometimes overlooked by people who prefer the buzz of Berlin or the beer of Munich, Hamburg is a major German city with plenty to offer visitors. There are some great boutiques and designer stores so you could do a little early Christmas shopping. If you visit later in November, you’ll be there for the beginning of their famous Christmas market.
