Your friends would describe you as…





Traverse City, Michigan

Michigan water is a mythical thing, and it’s not just because of those misty-eyed Tim Allen commercials. And Traverse City water—stretching from Lake Michigan down through a sequence of long inlet bays and lakes—is something all its own: so clear and turquoise blue that you could mistake the place for Bali Ha’i if not for the reflection of the pines.
Yellow Springs, Ohio

In addition to the retro-hippy charm that draws sightseers and clogs the sidewalks on golden autumn weekends, Yellow Springs is a fine base for a couple of days of vigorous (or leisurely) cycling on the Little Miami Scenic Trail—part of Southwest Ohio’s growing network of paved recreational paths.
Driftless Area, Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s Driftless Area is a collection of small towns that punctuate rolling acreage and forested hills formed over time by relentlessly winding rivers, like the Kickapoo, which in the native Algonquian language means “one who goes there, then here.” Even the county roads, dotted in parts with furniture makers, fur traders, and canoe rentals, obey the geography; there’s not a straight-shot freeway in sight.
Asheville, North Carolina

A mere five-hour drive through the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains, this Low Country hot spot is a nexus of international cuisine and craft beer.
