Still time to take a vacation (or dream of one) as summer winds down.

The temperature is dropping, the nights are getting longer, kids are heading back to school, and sweaters and jackets are making their way into stores. Fall is in the air, but there’s still time to sneak in a last-minute summer vacation, even if it’s only in pictures. Live vicariously through our photo roundup of beautiful beaches, exotic safaris, gorgeous Morocco and Yacht Week Croatia. As a bonus, don’t miss a fascinating infographic by Conde Nast Traveler detailing how travel has changed since the magazine was founded 25 years ago. One particularly interesting stat: 35 percent of Americans own passports in 2012, compared with only 3 percent in 1987!
