BRIT+CO - End of summer got you down? We feel ya. Packing away swimsuits and flip-flops is never fun, but we have just the thing to boost the mood — a September getaway. From sprawling fields full of ready-to-pick wine grapes to tents filled with epic beer drinking festivities, the below five destinations prove that this month is truly a step above the rest. Keep scrolling to see the best places to travel to end the summer on the right note.
1. Napa Valley, California:
If you’re a sommelier — or just really love your vino — head to one of the country’s most prestigious wine growing regions. September marks the start of harvest season, which means the city is teeming with things to do. (And it certainly doesn’t hurt that the weather is divine for this time of year too.) Most wineries offer their own food, music, and wine pairing parties to mark the occasion. If hopping from one to the next feels like more of your scene, ride along in a throwback VW bus for a formal tour of the area. Then, when you’re ready to wine down (sorry, we had to!), a deep tissue massage at the Meritage Resort & Spa is a must do.
