Michigan, you’re a real treat. 🍂 We’ve had the opportunity to spend a few weekends in Traverse City, Michigan and we highly recommend you visit this charming town in the late spring, summer, or fall! Traverse City is about 6 hours from Chicago, located in the northwest edge of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. This is a perfect trip for foodies and wine-lovers who also love to be outdoors!

Wine for Lovers in Hermann, Missouri
You have to visit Hermann, Missouri, especially if you are a wine lover! Hermann is a such a cute village and has deep German roots. This means they have lots of amazing wineries, distilleries, sausage, bakeries, and even some museums. We had a blast and we highly recommend it as a great couples destination for the Fall and holidays!
