With fall fast approaching, it’s time to start planning your ultimate fall vacation. Boyne Mountain Resort in upper Michigan offers the perfect destination to ring in fall with a breezy walk across SkyBridge Michigan, a sky-high bridge nestled between the peaks of McLouth to Disciples Ridge.
As summer colors fade to hues of red, orange and yellow across the landscape, SkyBridge Michigan at Boyne Mountain Resort offers the best views. Breathe in the crisp fall air as you traverse “Michigan’s second bridge,” suspended 118 feet in the air, and indulge in breathtaking views of the Boyne Valley. Afterwards, enjoy some food and drinks from SkyBridge Michigan’s food truck while relaxing around a fire pit and enjoying live music.
While there, set out and explore the surrounding area of Boyne Falls. Stop by local farms and farmers markets to learn how to make maple syrup, enjoy a bike ride along a paved pathway from the resort to downtown Boyne City, sip on Michigan craft beer on a local brewery tour, and enjoy a hike through Northern Michigan.
Boyne Mountain Resort is located about an hour from Traverse City and four hours from Detroit.
There is something magical about sipping a glass of local wine while watching the sun slip into the Aegean Sea as the afterglow tinges traditional, white-washed Cycladic houses with glorious shades of rose, purple and gold. Ancient Greeks believed Helios, the Sun God, caused sunsets by driving his fiery chariot into the sea. Standing at water’s edge in Mykonos, watching the sky slowly turn from purple to inky black, you almost believe it.
One affordable plan can protect an entire year of trips: business or pleasure, short or long, domestic or international.
I hadn’t even made it to my first cup of coffee when I got an early phone call from my sister, who lives two time zones away. “OMG, Kristy, Patsy Cline came on twice while I was driving the kids to school today,” she laughed. “You know what that means, right?” We both gasped and then instantly began singing the lyrics to “La Bamba,” an inside joke we’d shared since our family’s Alaskan cruise decades ago when we, unintentionally, won the ship’s karaoke contest among a sea of Patsy Cline tributes.

Midway Atoll is the end of the Hawai‘ian Islands, literally. This is the ultimate fate of these low, sandy islets ringing a lagoon: Eventually these last remnants of a once large volcanic island will sink beneath the waves, completing a story that began 1,500 miles away. Midway, though not easy to get to, occasionally features in cruise itineraries. Holland America Line’s Westerdam offers a rare chance to glimpse the remotest of all the Hawai‘ian Islands with a scheduled stop in October 2024. You can still see the relics of the famous World War II battle here as well as a million nesting albatrosses and other seabirds.
