There’s nothing better for your mind, body, and soul than connecting with nature. If you’re planning a trip, keep this in mind as you choose a destination.
From lazy days by a lake to falling asleep to ocean waves, a vacation planned around nature is guaranteed to boost your health. You can opt for a health and wellness retreat where meals and activities are scheduled for you, or create your own tailored to you and your family.
Here are some travel destinations to excite the senses and awaken the soul.
Look for places near National parks. Some of the most visited national parks include: -Great Smoky Mountains National Park -Grand Canyon National Park -Rocky Mountain National Park -Yosemite National Park -Yellowstone National Park
Hiking is an excellent experience for the entire family! Not only can you experience the awe of something bigger than you, if you’re traveling with children, you can also instill in them the importance of connecting with nature.
Beaches and lakes can also be very calming vacation spots. If you’re looking for more of a working/educational vacation, search for an Agritourism destination. Agritourism is where agriculture and tourism meet to provide you with an amazing educational experience, whether it be a tour of a farm or ranch, a festival or a cheese-making class.
The point is to get out and experience the great outdoors! You never know what’s waiting for you or what you’ll discover about yourself.
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” -Eleonora Duse
