Enjoy These 5 Destinations In The American Great Outdoors


Celebrating a special occasion is the perfect reason to travel. It can make any occasion even more meaningful. And the good news is, you don’t have to go far to achieve this.


Traveling to destinations within the United States, or even within your home state, can be unique, even exotic, and will get you out of your daily routine so you can enjoy time with loved ones and celebrate life’s important moments.


If you’re looking for incredible outdoor holiday ideas that don’t require you to go too far from home, here are seven mind-blowing places to help you scratch your itch for adventure.


Page, Arizona


This town may be tiny, but it packs a powerful punch for surreal scenery and endless adventure. Once a temporary camp built for the workers constructing the Glen Canyon Dam, Page City is a jumping-off point for iconic sites like Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and Lake Powell. This region is also home to the indigenous Navajo People, and travelers are invited to learn about the history, culture, and relationship the proud Navajo have with the surrounding nature.


Maine, USA


Affectionately dubbed ‘vacationland,’ Maine is a haven for those seeking a blend of outdoor adventure, heritage, and sumptuous seafood cuisine. From the beautiful and untamed shoreline to the misty mountains of the Appalachians, adventure-seekers can enjoy over 52,000 miles of national parks, lakes, historic waterways, and over 3000 small islands.


Snohomish County, Washington State


If emerald green lakes, crisp pine-filled air, and cozy coffee culture are what you’re seeking, the Pacific Northwest is calling your name. Snohomish County is Washington State’s urban outdoor cultural capital. Suppose you’re an outdoor enthusiast who likes to combine a city break with outdoor adventure. In that case, pristine natural attractions like the Stillaguamish—Sauk River Valleys, the stunning Gothic Basin, and Granite Falls are just a short drive away. Snohomish County needs to be your next socially distanced vacation destination with more than 2000 square miles to hike, kayak, road trip, sail, and stroll.


Kauai, Hawaii


Hawaii is breathtaking, but the “Garden Island” is almost beyond description. Hawaii’s most laid-back island represents the essence of Aloha. Kauai offers all that for travelers wanting to strike a balance between barefoot strolls along powder-soft shorelines and hair-raising helicopter rides over lush carpeted valleys. While much of Hawaii draws large, boisterous crowds, Kauai is quieter, less trodden, and largely untouched, with much of the island only accessible by air or sea. Natural attractions you won’t want to miss include the Wailua River, Waimea Canyon, and Poipu Beach.


Inian Islands, Alaska


The hardest part of planning an action-packed vacation to Alaska is choosing where to start first. Alaska is so massive that you can fit Texas, California, and Montana within its state borders. And while every square inch of Alaska is beautiful, the Inian Islands are one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet. Nestled up against the world’s tallest coastal mountains, where currents collide with nutrient-dense coastlines, you’ll find everything from Humpback whales, orcas, steller sea lions, Grizzlies, and soaring bald eagles. A ferociously protected biosphere full of wide-open spaces, and endless wilderness, the Inian Islands are a bucket list destination.


You don’t have to look further than your own backyard or even the next state over to experience a dreamy, socially distanced vacation in the great outdoors. Valleys, the stunning Gothic Basin, and Granite Falls are just a short drive away. Snohomish County needs to be your next socially distanced vacation destination with more than 2000 square miles to hike, kayak, road trip, sail, and stroll.
