Mother Nature. She's a dazzling and humbling force, as well as a place we can turn when seeking rejuvenation. And that's not just talk - research has shown the outdoors have a remarkably positive effect on our physical and mental health, so they're a natural place to turn for a wellness holiday. Here are four remote and restorative destinations to explore, each set within or next to a national or state park. Get yourself out of the urban hustle, and into a landscape where pure and delicious quiet can be achieved.
It's not too late to plan an escape for spring. We have some great suggestions for last minute trips to warm weather destinations but things are filling up fast (check out our alternative US destinations for some other options as well).
As the usual suspects start to fill up consider these alternative US destinations that are standouts for food, cultural and adventure.
Instead of Charleston, South Carolina, check out the food scene in Greenville, South Carolina. Head to the wide open spaces of Bozeman, Montana instead of Jackson Hole, Wyoming; go off the beaten path in funky Key West.It may be a destination you've not yet considered, and might be your best travel experience yet!
Traveling now, like most things in 2020, is a bit different. You need to consider entry requirements, hotel protocols, whether there is limited access to some activities in locations, and cancellation policies as travel options change from day-to-day. We have a few suggested destinations to visit and how to keep safe while traveling.
“Trips of a lifetime” are rooted in something meaningful, something that feeds your soul, pushes your limits, and engages you in your surroundings instead of just helping you cross something off a (bucket) list. These trips require thought and sometimes a lot of advanced planning(a year in advance for hiking in Patagonia, for example). Here are some of our favorite destinations and the trips we are dreaming of taking soon. Hope they inspire you!
