Each destination has its own unique flare. From pristine beaches to cool landscapes, take a look at some places you can go right here in the States that offer a far away-from-home vibe.

Moab, Utah

Leavenworth, Washington

Mackinac Island, Michigan

The hidden gem, Mackinac Island, is located between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas on Lake Huron. It feels very much like a seaside village in the English countryside with its boutiques, horse-drawn carriages, fudge shops, and Victorian-style homes with sweeping porches. You’ll feel like you’re on another planet since no cars are allowed on the island. Visitors will have to get around by foot or bike, which remains the main mode of transportation here.

Crab Island-Destin, Florida

Crab Island, notably not an actual island but a submerged sandbar, is one of Destin’s most popular attractions. The location is only accessible by boat and is picture-perfect with its clear blue-green waters. But what makes it even cooler is the floating vendors. Visitors can purchase food, drinks, and more right there on the water.

Catalina Island, California

For those who want a French Riviera Italian coast right here in the States, Catalina Island, CA, is the place. The Mediterranean vibes are probably due to the fact that Catalina Island once belonged to the Spanish Empire. It’s nearly 30 minutes away from Los Angeles, but you’ll feel out of pocket once there. It offers plenty of beachfront restaurants and palm trees along the seaside. There’s a lot of scenery to enjoy here.
