Even though summer doesn’t officially end until September 23rd, we can’t help but be a bit bothered that our summetime fun has come to an end. The season went by way too fast and it feels like there is still so much left to do – and there is!
The best part about travel is that it’s always summer somewhere in the world, so before we say goodbye to shorts and hello to pea coats, let’s plan a getaway (or two!) that will keep us basking in the sunshine just a little longer.
From beaches and glamping to fine dining, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite fall escapes that will stretch your summer and your joy. You know we wouldn’t steer you wrong, so grab your passport, gather your frequent flyer miles and let’s keep this party going!
For The Culture Buffs: Mexico City
Mexico City is a destination on the rise and perfect for travelers looking for a more culturally authentic Mexican experience. Stay at the St. Regis Mexico City and take a bike tour through eclectic neighborhoods like Roma Norte and La Condesa to uncover trendy restaurants, hip cocktail lounges and edgy boutiques like Garota, Delirio, 180 Shop, and Goodbye Folk. Interested in learning more about Mexican culture? The National Museum of Anthropology, Museo de Arte Popular and the Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera are absolute musts!
For The Beach Bums: Bermuda
Made up of 181 islands, islets and rocks, Bermuda is an irresistible paradise known for its pristine pink sand beaches and pleasant weather that rarely sees extremes of either hot or cold. Set up camp at the luxe Loren Bermuda and fall in love with the property’s pristine beachfront views. Go on a jetski safari with H20 Sports and discover unique wildlife, historical points of interest and amazing island beauty, then grab a fish sandwich at Woody’s in Somerset or Art Mels in Hamilton before settling on the soft sands of Horseshoe Bay or Warwick Long Bay beaches.
For The Glampers: Big Sur, California
When it comes to weather, California has certainly been blessed. The mild temps make it perfect for experiencing sunshine long after the winter chill has hit the east coast. Head out west to get closer to nature with a glamping experience at Ventana Big Sur. Tucked away among California’s Redwoods, you’ll enjoy hiking, gardening, meditating and even take Tai Chi before getting your luxe on with a gourmet s’mores kit, wine, cheese and so much more.
For The Foodies: Bangkok
There is no debate! Nowhere in the world does food quite like Bangkok. Even the late, great Anthony Bourdain agrees. The bustling city is a foodie paradise and there really isn’t a bad time to visit. Make the Sofitel Bangkok your home away from home as you tour the streets of the city by tuk tuk on the hunt for yummy eats with Bangkok Food Tours, dine Michelin style at Nahm or get your hangover cocktails at Lebua State Tower.
