UP­PER EAST SIDE VIBES WITH­OUT THE STUFFINESS HOME TURF

Once-sleepy Prince Ed­ward County has be­come the Hamp­tons of On­tario—think lux­ury winer­ies, bou­tique ho­tels (we’re par­tial to the newly opened Airbnb Lyt­tle­ton in P.E.C.) and farmto-ta­ble restau­rants.

FAR AND AWAY

Napa Val­ley, your par­ents’ fave va­ca­tion spot, just got... cool? From pool par­ties and gin tast­ing at So­lage, a part of the Au­berge Re­sorts Collection, to open-air wine tast­ing and bocce ball at Ashes & Di­a­monds, there’s plenty to please the mil­len­nial trav­eller.

WHAT TO PACK

A jacket. The night­time can get chilly.

LOUNG­ING IS FOR THE WEAK HOME TURF

Into sight­see­ing? Try Vic­to­ria. Long over­shad­owed by neigh­bour­ing Van­cou­ver, the city is hav­ing a mo­ment, es­pe­cially for food­ies. The plush Court­ney Room restau­rant just opened at the Mag­no­lia Ho­tel & Spa; Ho­tel Rialto re­launched its restau­rant as steak house Veneto Kitchen + Bar; and craft brew­ers like Phillips Brew­ing & Malt­ing Co. are tak­ing over. Bring your ap­petite.

FAR AND AWAY

Tbil­isi, Ge­or­gia, has it all: a thriv­ing fash­ion scene, nightlife that ri­vals Ibiza’s and rich food (our style ed­i­tor loves the khacha­puri— salty fresh cheese baked into flaky dough). See it be­fore it’s over­run by tourists.

WHAT TO PACK

Play­ing the tourist is hard on the feet. Save the heels for Vegas.

POOL, MAR­GARITA, CAITLIN MO­RAN’S LAT­EST

HOME TURF While not new new, Sparkling Hill Re­sort in the Okana­gan Val­ley re­mains one of Canada’s best. Those views mean you don’t feel guilty for never leav­ing the in­fin­ity pool, and, if you’re up for a lit­tle self-care, it now of­fers well­ness and re­la­tion­ship-heal­ing pack­ages.

FAR AND AWAY

Save the Caribbean allinclu­sives for dreary Fe­bru­ary. In­stead, em­brace the up­scale­cot­tage vibes of Ver­mont’s Twin Farms, which is just three hours away from Mon­treal.

WHAT TO PACK

Com­fort is key for loung­ing lake­side.

HEAL THY­SELF WITH LUX­URY HOME TURF

Ocean House, the newly opened high-end wilder­ness lodge lo­cated in the re­mote rain­forests of Haida Gwaii, will en­sure you feel 250-per­cent more re­laxed the mo­ment you set foot on the is­land. Then come the full-ser­vice spa, in­vig­o­rat­ing hikes, fresh seafood and, you guessed it, eu­pho­ria.

FAR AND AWAY

Name a celebrity and she’s prob­a­bly been to Vi­vaMayr, a lux­ury med­i­cal and detox cen­tre in the Aus­trian Alps (which opened its sec­ond lo­ca­tion a few years back). Warn­ing: This is an in­tense fit­ness and well­ness pro­gram, so if you’re seek­ing a cushy va­cay, try else­where.

WHAT TO PACK

Well­ness and ath­leisure go hand in hand.
