Grab your swimsuit and head to one of these six getaways before summer's close. We recommend heading south (or west!) for the weekend to one of these warm-weather resorts.

Relax by the 7,000-square-foot infinity-edge oceanfront pool during the day, and check out one of Gansevoort’s gourmet restaurants at night.

Guests at this recently renovated 155-room resort receive daily spa treatments (including five new services) and the chance to participate in various activities to relax and unwind while getting in shape and escaping the severe Boston chill.
