You can’t call yourself a true wine lover without a trip to the wine country. The historic city of Sonoma is at the heart of the picturesque vineyards and hills of Sonoma Valley. Famously known for its high-end art galleries and colonial-era architecture, the city is a pastoral hideaway in northern California. Pick from one of the valley’s pristine lodges, embark on a spa retreat, and have your fair share of wine tastings. With more than 425 wineries to choose from, you’re going to be very busy this Labor Day!

Nantucket, Massachusetts

The island of Nantucket might be tiny, but don’t judge a city by its size. The charm of Nantucket lives within its historic cobblestone streets, beautiful beaches, and preppy boutiques. From steepled churches to the town’s signature lighthouses, every corner of Nantucket feels like a maritime postcard. Layout by the water or take a bike ride on the shore; there’s no wrong way to celebrate Labor Day in this idyllic Massachusetts vacation spot.

White Shep Stripe Edgartown Polo at Vineyard Vines, $79.50

Aspen, Colorado

One of the most arresting views in America exists at 8,000 feet elevation in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Aspen, known for being the quintessential ski town of the country, isn’t just stunning in the winter. During the summer season, Aspen is in full bloom with delicate patches of vibrantly-hued flowers, rolling meadows, and crystal clear lakes. Lucky for Labor Day visitors, the city of Aspen-Snowmass hosts a Jazz festival to remember all weekend long. When you’re not enjoying the sounds of a smooth saxophone, take a hike through the scenic Maroon Bells.


What to Pack:

Premium Rucksack at The North Face, $188

Baller Hat Breeze at Lululemon, $38

Savannah, Georgia

Looking for a sweet weekend of relaxation and art? Savannah is a majestic country getaway with artistic flair. The city is best known for its shady oak trees, lush parks, and antebellum architecture. Be the southern bell of the ball as you experience the cultural hub of Georgia. Aside from romantic views and picture-perfect appeal, Savannah is also home to the Savannah College of Art and Design and has quickly become a city of makers.
