Leaf Town and Discover Fall!

Fall may not conjure up the same relaxing and idyllic vacation imagery as summer but it looks like this season may be the best time to travel!

With school back in full swing and people refocused for work – no one’s thinking about using their vacation days before the holidays. Which means if you play your cards right, you could be enjoying a crowd-less and serene couple of days!

Right now, CoPilot GPS customers can get 10% off an upgrade to turn-by-turn, voice guided navigation until October 16! Already got the upgrade? Read on for ideas to take your new features on a test drive.

Family Fun

While other kids are doing things like “learning” and “reading”, take your kids to get some life experience! Disneyworld is at it’s best (and less crowded) during the fall and you can even catch the Halloween decorations!

Group Getaway

Summer can be hectic and crazy so rent a cabin with a group of friends to talk and catch up. Or, head to one of the many fall music festivals around the country to take advantage of cool music in even cooler temperatures.

European Travel Bucket List – Dream Destinations

As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, that familiar feeling of wanderlust is sure to follow.

As you plan for your next great European adventure, we’d love to know which places are on your travel bucket list. Instead of the usual sites (London, Paris, Rome, etc), we’re looking to go to some places off the beaten path. Here’s a few of our dream destinations:

Madrid

Santiago Bernabéu StadiumCoPilot has been to the bustling metropolis of Barcelona for Mobile World Congress but we have yet to experience what the capital city, Madrid, has to offer. There’s plenty to do in Spain’s largest city; you can take in the rich history of the city in its various art museums and get embraced by the locals at a Real Madrid football game in Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

 

 

 

Athens

Mount_LycabettusHome to the Acropolis, one of the world’s most famous images, this Greek city boasts a deep and rich history. The birthplace of the Olympic games, democracy and philosophy is a must-see for world travelers. Once there, take in the panoramic view of the city from the top of Mount Lycabettus.

 

 

 

Budapest

Heroess squareKnown for the infamous Thermal Baths, Budapest is a great destination for those looking to find beautiful scenery, grand architecture and mouth-watering cuisine. There are also plenty of places to visit in Budapest, most accessed on foot!  Full of 14 different statues of Hungarian historical significance, Heroes’ Square represents independence and freedom for the people in the capital.

 

 

Prague

the-dancing-house-pragueThe hauntingly beautiful town of Prague makes for an excellent vacation. Its streets are lined with fairy-tale like architecture and the narrow streets and bridges are straight out of a story book. A famous landmark, the Dancing House, is a favorite among tourists.

 

 

Copenhagen

tivoli-gardens-1 Any city that provides free bikes for tourists is alright in our book! Copenhagen is a sophisticated city with plenty to see. You don’t need to be a kid to visit the Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world. And don’t forget to get an authentic Danish pastry while you’re there!
