Rest & Relaxation
How to kick back, relax and truly enjoy your next vacation.
We all do it – between juggling work deadlines and family schedules, we forget to plan time to relax. Even vacations can get hectic if you travel somewhere that requires a lot of planning and organization (Disney, anyone?). Today, we want to help you plan a relaxation vacation – a place to truly unplug from the world and enjoy your family’s company…or maybe a trip just for you!
Smart Travel has a list of eight vacations for ultimate relaxation. It includes beach-side resorts in the Dominican Republic and a Japanese hot springs spa in Santa Fe, N.M. We had to add Isla Mujeres, Mexico to our travel bucket list. The small fishing village is on a dolphin-shaped island that has plenty of outdoor hammocks and open-air hotel rooms.
The Huffington Post breaks down its vacation suggestions by what relaxation means to you. If your goal is style, check out St. Barts. If you prefer imagination, maybe a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas is the right choice. Our favorite has to be a family vacation in Hilton Head.
If your definition of relaxation means a resort, Travel + Leisure has suggestions for you. The Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, Ariz. offers opportunities for guests to ride horses or mountain bike through the Sonoran Desert. For East Coasters, the Ocean House in Watch Hill, R.I. is the perfect choice. Built in 1868, the Victorian hotel is a glamorous destination away from it all.
