The last time you tried to paint the town, you cleared out the art-supply store. This time you can make your fall palette pop with an Escape to Hotel Indigo East End in Riverhead, Long Island. You and your better half will enjoy a one-night stay for two in a standard room, Sundays through Thursdays, with one 60-minute Indigo massage treatment ($169). Or, spend a Sunday night for two in a standard room and experience farm-wine-and-spirits tour for two on Long Island's North Fork ($239). Regardless of when you visit, you'll get a $25 dining credit to Bistro 72.
Your technicolor trip begins in the brightly hued rooms of this funky East End hotel, equipped with flat-screen televisions, Aveda bath products, and free Wi-Fi. Work off the weekday blues with a sweat session in the fitness center, or plan a day around the hotel's spa.
Situated within five miles of the Hamptons and beaches on Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, this North Fork hotel gives you quick access to a kaleidoscope of activities. Nearby, overhaul your wardrobe at the sprawling Tanger Outlets or get some color with a day at South Jamesport Beach. You can venture farther to visit picturesque Montauk and stroll along the historic streets of Sag Harbor.
When hunger threatens to dim your rosy outlook, sate it with your dining credit at the hotel's Bistro 72. The menu is a stroke of genius, featuring regional wines and locally sourced dishes like a tender pan-seared Long Island striped bass with an herb rub and a savory local mushroom ragout over risotto.
Afterward, continue to paint the town red by catching the sunset at Westhampton Beach, followed by drinks and dancing at the hotel during one of the live music sessions (featuring local performers like The Steve Watson Trio).
On this week's rainbow-colored retreat, you'll appreciate a multi-hued masterpiece and have plenty of green left over for your next project.
