Here are five fabulous getaways in North America this summer.
Massachusetts’s most fashionable and exclusive getaway has been busy ever since the Kennedys popularized it. Today it boasts beautiful, picturesque views of the sea, large and accommodating beach houses and fine seafood and drink.
Virginia wine tasting and a country retreat
The Virginia wine industry isn’t as burgeoning as California’s, but due to climatic differences it actually offers wine aficionados a new treat for their palates. You could make a road trip out of it, though it goes without saying that any road trip wine tour should be undertaken responsibly by stopping at different country hotels along the way. (photo above)
Northern California and Sonoma County
For those who want to switch coasts for their summer break, Northern California is a beautiful choice. Head further north and arrive in Sonoma County, which is the up and coming ‘new Napa Valley’ – beautiful wine, stunning landscapes, and very fashionable boutique hotels and spas.
Riding in Montana
Yellowstone National Park is something that every American should see! There are now lots of fashionable ranch package holidays available in Montana, which has great access to Yellowstone, and resorts like Elk Ranch can offer five-star luxury while still maintaining the rustic appeal of horseback riding and living among the rugged terrain.
Stronger than the Storm – the New Jersey Coast
The New Jersey Shore has not long been associated with fashion, but ever since Hurricane Sandy, it’s certainly become fashionable to stand up for the Shore and its way of life. Indeed, the hashtag #StrongerThanTheStorm is gaining increasing traction online. The New Jersey Shore is more than just Jersey Shore and Snooki, promise!
