Autumn in Canada is a beautiful time of year, with the changing colours of the leaves and comfortable temperatures. In America, summer crowds have dissipated and the vibrant Autumn foliage makes for breath-taking scenery. October is one of the nicest times to go travelling in Australia, with flowers in bloom, warm weather and glorious landscapes everywhere you go. For gardeners and horticulturists, October weather makes visiting gardens in New Zealand, both private and public, an absolute pleasure.
Tip: Chicago hosts its International Film Festival in October; see over 150 indie, foreign and under-the-radar films from all over the world.
