Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

This week, I'll tell you about some great fall and winter vacations in the U.S. and Canada. Click the links to see applicable itineraries, departure dates and rates.

Our September and October fall foliage tours visit picturesque towns in New England and eastern Canada, traveling roadways bordered by spectacular displays of scarlet, purple, gold and orange leaves. Maple sugaring operations, cider mills and cranberry farms make appearances on some of these autumn itineraries.

Several special event tours are lined up for the coming months, giving guests access to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in New Mexico, the northern lights in Canada and the Rose Bowl Parade in Southern California. Alaska's Iditarod from Globus focuses on the state's best-known sporting event, while Alaska Northern Lights from Intrepid provides a chance to see the glowing aurora borealis.

October and November is the time for polar bear tours in Churchill, in Canada's Manitoba province. This is when the bears congregate on the shores of Hudson Bay, waiting for it to freeze over so they can begin their winter hunting.

Certain destinations take on a magical appearance in winter. On Canada's Winter Wonderland from Collette, you'll travel past evergreen forests and snowcapped peaks and get opportunities to join a snowshoe trek in Jasper and a horse-drawn sleigh ride through Banff.
Or take in the quiet beauty of Yellowstone National Park, where Old Faithful sends its steamy plume above the snowy landscape and wolves, bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope are among the winter residents that you might spot.

Contiki, which caters to travelers ages 18-35, offers The Powder Rush ski and snowboard vacation in western Canada.

Some tour companies offer themed holiday trips. For a special departure of Texas - The Lone Star State, Cosmos has secured reserved seats at San Antonio's Holiday River Parade, where 28 illuminated barges will float down the city's central waterway. Or you can attend the annual lighting ceremony at Graceland on a November departure of the company's Elvis & the Southern Sounds vacation.

See how Charleston, Savannah and Jekyll Island get dressed up for the holidays on Southern Charm Holiday, or watch the Rockettes perform their annual "Christmas Spectacular" at Radio City Music Hall during Spotlight on New York City Holiday -- both tours are offered by Collette.
Meanwhile, the American Queen Steamboat Company celebrates the yuletide season with its Holiday - Christmas Markets sailings on the Mississippi River, or you can toast the arrival of 2017 on the New Year's Celebration cruise.

Or maybe you're thinking of a warm-weather getaway this winter? Check out our vacations in Hawaii, Florida, San Diego and Los Angeles.
