Top 3 Places to Go in July

From the stunningly gorgeous vineyards of Bordeaux, to the lazy countrysides of Vermont, or the world renowned fields of lavender in Provence, summer was made for vacation and relaxation. Join us for a heated summer romance on two wheels. Your heart may skip a beat, but you won’t want to skip a moment.

1. Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine country in France, if not the world. Tiny villages break up miles and miles of vineyards, producing some of the deepest, full-bodied reds a tongue could ever taste. The flowering of the vines in July presents the best opportunity to soak in the sensational views of vine-covered slopes. This isn’t just another wine country. This is the world’s premiere destination of wine. Welcome, and drink up.

2. Vermont

Vermont in July promises everything you love about New England, like the gorgeous mountain backdrops and quiet country roads, with the added kick of the region’s best breweries. Take a dip in Lake Dunmore, hike the Stowe Pinnacle Trail, indulge in a maple creemee, and taste everything from double IPAs to small batches from some of craft brewing’s most famous names. There’s no better place to celebrate the brilliance of summer than the picturesque Green Mountains.

3. Provence

Nestled between the Rhone River and Italy, Provence offers plenty of southeastern French cuisine, washed down with world-class rosés and Pastis, a homegrown traditional liqueur. In July, Provence also offers sensational views of lavender fields for which the region is known, and there’s no better place to drink in the scenery than Abbaye de Senanque – a Cistercian abbey dating to the 12th-century, whose monks still produce lavender and honey.
