Fall is officially here. Just listen to the melancholy moans of barbecues with their covers back on. Smell the Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the air. Witness the endless parade of dads in puffy vests.
It’s time to mourn Summer 19’s departure — the loss of afternoons poolside, weekends spent at music festivals, and the feeling of the tide against your junk at clothing-optional beaches. “Everything golden fades” as they say. Unless… You know… Maybe… You could always get right back on the road and chase summer around the world. You could fly to where Mai Tais are still in season and linen never goes out of style. You could travel.
We take the art of chasing summer very seriously around these parts. Some of that means picking destinations with temperatures in the 70s and 80s. But it’s also important to make sure that the locale is one where you can keep enjoying the warm weather activities that have kept you busy these past four months. Cyan water lapping on white-sand beaches. Sweaty nights dancing until the sun comes up. Surfing and SCUBA and maybe even a little cliff diving.
To help you keep summer alive as long as possible, we picked 10 destinations to fill you with wanderlust. Each of them has at least one activity that will assist you in your mission of prolonging the warm weather spirit deep into fall.
