Is the bustling city beat starting to wear you down? Is your day job becoming a blur of never-ending paperwork and monotonous phone calls?
Studies show that you need to get out of there every now and again. Spending time in nature is good for you, so a break from your daily routine is just what the doctor ordered.
Take a look at these top cabin vacation tips and start planning your escape to one of the USA’s most relaxing destinations.
Book a Cabin in the Woods
The tiny hamlet of Blue Ridge in the Appalachian Mountains is about as far from the hubbub as you can get.
Here, you’ll find tranquility in abundance along with plenty of hiking, tubing, waterfalls, and nature to enjoy. Spend some time unwinding in a jacuzzi or relaxing around the firepit if you prefer.
When you’ve regained your zest for life, you can take part in golf, horseback riding through the forest, or boating on the lake. Picking fruit at the local Mercier Orchards is a fun activity the whole family can enjoy.
Blue Ridge is also the trout fishing capital of Georgia, so it’s the perfect place to try your hand at this relaxing activity too.
Plan a Lake Escape
Lake Tahoe is rightfully famous as a world-class ski destination but it’s great for a top-class summer getaway too.
Relax and lap up the views of North America’s largest alpine lake, explore the beautiful Emerald Bay on a sightseeing cruise, or take it all in on a professional photography tour.
You can also swim, sunbathe and go boating at King’s Beach, enjoy several state parks in the area or take your chances at Harrah’s Casino.
Lake Tahoe offers a little bit of everything every time of the year.
