Just because the calendar reads October, it doesn’t mean you have to pack up the hammock for the winter. In fact, visit the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica this month and you can still enjoy charming, bleached-out guest rooms and seaside brunches. At Four-Star properties like The Setai in Miami and Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, patrons can still be found taking early-morning jogs on the sand and basking in jaw-dropping ocean views at dusk. Same goes for the Four-Star Ocean House, a magnificent Rhode Island escape that’s not only accepting the fact that fall is upon us, but is actually embracing it with an “Autumn in New England” package. It offers the best of both worlds — a room at the waterfront hotel and a trip to a cider mill.
