American City Adventure Or Country Escape?

If you’re at a loose end this summer, you might be considering an extra vacation or break away. And if it needs to be quick, you might choose the United States as the place to be. There are dozens of great cities for a great night out, some boutique shopping, or even a culture tour. Or perhaps you’re looking for the quiet and serene landscapes of America’s great wilderness. The country air can be so relaxing.

So how do you choose? Perhaps it all depends on the mood you’re in or the company you’re with. Fortunately, America really does have it all. So pick a State and pack your bags! It really is that simple to enjoy the hustle of the city or the calm of the country. Perhaps you’re driving to one of these Texas cities, or you’re on your way to Montana for some horseback riding. Your mode of transport could be part of the pleasure of the break.

If you’re after adventure for your short break, you’re not short of choices. In the countryside of Yellowstone National Park, you can find hiking trails, camping parks, and rafting. There are tours available if you fancy safety in numbers. Or you can backpack your way through on foot, sleeping out under the stars.

If you want adventure in the city, Vegas has to be the place. You can head out on helicopter rides to the surrounding landscapes and canyons. And taking on the casinos is an adventure of a lifetime! You can take in a world-class show, and even get married on a whim in Las Vegas. Of course, Vegas isn’t the only city offering action and adventure. San Luis Obispo in California packs a punch for outdoor adventure enthusiasts. You can enjoy kayaking in the city. It’s a firm favorite with residents and tourists.

So what would you choose? Something action-packed, or something quiet and relaxing? There are plenty of quiet vacations to have in the cities too. Some of the country’s best spas are located in the city. These quiet sanctuaries from the hustle and bustle of the world offer luxury pampering treatments. They’ll help you feel calm, relaxed and refreshed. Ivins City in Utah is home to one of the most popular spa retreats in the world. With all those gorgeous Utah landscapes for a backdrop, no wonder you come home feeling fabulous!
