15 Affordable Fall Getaways for Empty Nesters
After the peak tourist season ends in August, prices drop along with the temperature in this North Atlantic nation. Iceland has about 13 hours of sunlight daily in September and an opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis (aka the Northern Lights). Early fall is also when one of the country's oldest traditions takes place -- the réttir, or annual rounding-up of sheep. Iceland is close enough for a short getaway from the East Coast; a flight is less than six hours from New York.
