Having spent ample time in Sun Valley in the winter and summer seasons, I had no idea how much I would love the autumn. The surrounding areas are filled with magical golden fall hues. There is plenty of activity to take part in before the popular ski season arrives. Hike any of the gorgeous trails encountering amazing views and crisp clean fall air. Stroll along the streets of Ketchum taking in the art scene, and any number of wonderful restaurants. There is plenty to be had in this beautiful area inbetween September and October!

Bear Mountain Lodge has had many lives since it was first built in 1928. Back then, it was a school for unruly boys from the East Coast; later it became a country club and hotel for the well-heeled; and before artist-turned-innkeeper Linda Brewer bought the property five years ago and turned it into a 10-room lodge, it was owned by the Nature Conservancy. It’s fitting, then, that nature is the main attraction at the lodge, which sits on 178 acres and has horses, cows, and chickens, plus birds and butterflies and a pond that’s home to the endangered Chiricahua Leopard Frog. The Gila National Forest—at 2.7 million acres, the largest wilderness area in the Southwest—is the lodge’s back yard. If you find yourself missing civilization, Silver City is just over three miles away, but escape is really the point here. And while there is Wi-Fi, there aren’t any televisions.

Tucked down an alleyway near Oxford Street is one of London's most exclusive and unique clubs, the Cirque le Soir. Translating in French to circus of the night, this dance club lives up to its name. Here, you can be anyone, and every night is a fancy dress party if you want it to be. My recommendation is to arrive before midnight, because after the clock strikes 12 the line starts getting pretty long. Once you descend into the "underworld" there's an all night party waiting for you with circus performers, games, and vendors with popcorn and cotton candy. Make sure to explore the circus early because once 1 am hits the show starts: dancers, fire breathers, lasers, drag queens, living dolls; anything is possible. A night that I will never forget.
