    Add These Spots to Your Fall Travel Bucketlist

    The luxury apartments in Riverside CA are great, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t times where you just want to get away for a bit, right? In fact, we’d be willing to wager you’ve got an ever-growing list of places you’ll want to travel to before your time on Earth expires, no? Fall is a great place to sate your hunger for international travel, so if you haven’t yet added the following destinations to your list, why not check them out and consider giving them a visit come September or October?

    Venture to Chichen Itza

    Sure, when you think of early American civilizations, the Aztec and Incas might spring most immediately to mind, but don’t overlook the remnants of the old Mayan cities located in Mexico. Case in point is Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was once one of the Mayan civilization’s greatest cities, and while what remains is only a fraction of its former glory, it’s still a sight to behold (and one that only an in-person visit can do justice).

    Check Out Christ the Redeemer

    If you’ve seen a picture of Rio de Janeiro, you’ve likely seen the statue of Christ the Redeemer featured prominently above the hills of the city. Another Wonder of the World, this statue was built in the 1920s and stands a full 98 feet in height. Those outstretched arms have a span of 92 feet, and the statue itself weighs 635 tons. It is a popular tourist landmark, and has been the inspiration for many similar works you might find scattered across the globe.

    Visit the Eiffel Tower

    One of Paris’ most notable landmarks, the Notre Dame Cathedral, is still recovering from that catastrophic fire it endured, but another of Paris’ main attractions — the Eiffel Tower — should be one near the top of any traveler’s bucket list. Though originally constructed as a way to commemorate an anniversary of the French Revolution, it is today a major tourist hotspot, and a well-known rendezvous point for romantic getaways. Grab a drink beneath its shadow, and bask in its glory.

    Go to Athens

    Known far and wide as the birthplace of Western Civilization, Greece, and its iconic cities like Athens, represent the truest form of the classical spirit, the pursuit of knowledge, and democratic ideals. There are many significant sites of antiquity you can visit in the city, but be sure to check out the Acropolis and the Parthenon.

    Return Rejuvenated to the Luxury Apartments in Riverside CA

    Whether you hit one of those international destinations for your fall trip or just decide to take a quicker journey within the good old USA, when you return to the splendid residences at Altana, make sure you return recharged, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle your next adventure. Remember, travel is about having fun, so make the most of your voyage, and we’ll hope to be seeing you with a bit more pep in your step upon your inevitable return to one of Glendale’s most splendid communities.
