It’s wildflower season in the Rockies, and there’s no better place to see them in Colorado than Crested Butte, the state’s official Wildflower Capital. This idyllic setting in the Gunnison Valley is lovely year-round, but there’s perhaps no better time to visit than mid-July, when the mountain blooms are at their peak. Intrigued? Here’s how to plan your own walk on the wild(flower) side.

Where will July take you? Where should it? You could visit a cosmopolitan city, view some wonderful art, stroll in the parks, and have your meals at chic outdoor cafes (we’re thinking Paris, New York, London and Berlin). Want something more bucolic? You could head to Provence for the lavender. Feeling the need for adrenaline-fueled adventures? You can follow the snow and ski in Chile, Argentina or New Zealand. Or head to Kenya for a safari followed by a beach idyll. And island life is at its perfect peak in many parts of the globe, so you could ditch your shoes and set up shop in the Seychelles, Corsica or Sardinia. It’s all waiting for you. It’s July!
Can the Lowcountry of South Carolina deliver a high luxury experience? Oh, yes, dear reader. Case in point? The fabulous Montage Palmetto Bluffs, often cited on lists of the most romantic hotels in the world. We first stayed there a few years ago, and fell completely in love with this gracious resort. A couple of years ago, a $100 million renovation made it even more magical. If you want to leave every manner of urban care behind – especially if you’re traveling with small children, or a large group – this serene hideaway is an answered prayer.
