Design and Art Lovers Will Want to Visit These 5 Places in August

August is prime time for summer travel, and if you haven’t planned a trip yet, now is the time to do so.

There’s no bad time to visit the California Wine Country, but Sonoma is especially enticing in August, when you can partake in the long-standing Art in the Redwoods Festival.
