Everyone wants to stay cool on their summer vacation, and where do they go more often than not? The beach. Temperatures might be cooler near the water and the scenery second to none, but sometimes you just want to get away and not have to worry about crowds of people and non-existent parking. Let’s take a look at some other more out-of-the-way and intimate summer vacation ideas that doesn’t involve the headache of massive crowds, long wait times, and gouges to your wallet.
A Cabin in the Woods
Who wouldn’t want to stay tucked away in the woods, secluded from the city, away from all the hustle and bustle? The only thing to wake you is the lilting tune of birdsong, and the only thing to do is read a book, play a game, or do a puzzle. The only decision you’ll have to make is what’s for dinner. Sounds like heaven.
Camping in the Mountains
You can find a deluxe campground just about anywhere, but some of the best are hidden gems that are off the beaten path. Nature hikes, babbling brooks, and pine trees galore are the theme of the day, and the only worry you’ll have is raccoons stealing your burger buns. Enjoy a roaring campfire, some good ol’ s’mores, and sing a few songs with the family. It’s good to unplug and reconnect with nature, and the cooler mountain air will bring some relief to those hot summer nights.
Vacation Home by the Lake
There are so many rental home websites these days, take your pick and rent a home by the lake! So much more convenient than crowded and noisy hotels, renting a home brings relaxation and a slower pace to your vacation, as you can enjoy your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the water. Take a shower when you like, take a nap as well. Forget your responsibilities back home and enjoy yourself. Save money by making your own meals and rent a boat for a day on the lake. You’ll stay cool near the water, yet enjoy the quiet of a private home.
Splurge on the Penthouse or Suite
Perhaps nature isn’t your thing, yet you love the idea of getting away in the quiet. Take the plunge and book the penthouse or a luxury suite of a hotel. Not only will you enjoy all the perks of being in the city, you’ll also love all the opulence a suite or penthouse can afford. Take advantage of room service and never leave your deluxe hideaway. Spend all day in bed and wear nothing but bathrobes. Unwind with the view and take advantage of all a penthouse has to offer.
Whether in a tent or in the penthouse, in a cabin or a private home, we’re sure you can find just what you’re looking for to have the perfect haven hideaway for your summer vacation. Get away from the crowds and keep your vacation an intimate affair. You will not regret it.
