Whether you own your own business or you’re a dedicated employee, we all know the stress of working a 9-5 job. When work is piling up and you can feel yourself getting burned out, sometimes the perfect thing to do is use those vacation days and spend a week or two relaxing. But where exactly do you go to relax? There are a couple of locations in the United States that are known for their serenity, beautiful sights, and opportunities to explore.
Here are three relaxing getaway destinations for your next vacation:
Savannah is a multicultural hub of eclectic experiences all set in a cozy, picturesque town. This town is full of things to do, from visiting the gorgeous Forsyth Park to taking one of the history tours exploring the historic homes and mansions throughout Savannah. You can also check out the City Market in Savannah’s Historic District, walking through the cute little boutiques and art galleries before stopping for a bite to eat at one of their luxurious restaurants.
If you’re in the mood for elegant lodgings, you can stay at the Mansion on Forsyth Park and enjoy the best that Southern hospitality has to offer. Or, if you’re in the mood for something a bit more historical (and a bit more haunted) the Olde Harbour Inn is located along the banks of the Savannah River smack dab in the middle of Savannah’s top attractions.
Located just south of Cape Cod, Nantucket is a beautiful little island that offers you all the comfort of isolation with none of the boredom. You can ride through the cobblestone streets on a rental bike or spend your relaxing getaway on the beach under the sun. Nantucket is full of iconic lighthouses such as the Brant Point Light, a perfect place to explore and watch the boats in the harbor sail past.
The Wauwinet is one of the top hotels in Nantucket, giving you access to private beaches to relax and walk along. There’s also the charming little Jared Coffin House, which comes fitted with elegant period decor while featuring modern accommodations.
Whether you’re enjoying the gorgeous views of the mountains in the summer months or the snow-capped peaks in the winter, Snowmass is one of the best relaxing getaways in the country. This ski resort offers you the ability to navigate snowy steeps, chutes, and glades in the winter as well as mountain biking, rock climbing, and horseback riding in the summer. You can even take a relaxing gondola ride while you gaze upon the beauty of Snowmass’s mountain vistas.
Snowmass has a variety of hotels and condominiums for you to choose from. The Stonebridge Inn is located in the center of Snowmass Village, allowing you to quickly hit the slopes anytime you like. You can also rent one of the Owl Creek Homes to enjoy access to your own four-bedroom townhome if you’re relaxing with the whole family.
