Going off the grid for a few days is always a nice way to recenter yourself, especially during this hectic year. Since we’re in the middle of what seems like a never-ending pandemic, traveling within the U.S. has been more desired among Americans this summer. 

If you’re in need of remote locations where you can take a breather in a beautiful environment, check out these four destinations. 

New Camaldoli Hermitage – Big Sur, California

Located outside of San Francisco, Big Sur is a great location to escape. Staying at the New Camaldoli Hermitage will give you the extra tranquility you’ve been needing. The rooms officer gardens and outdoor spaces while getting beautiful views of the ocean. 

Little Palm Island Resort & Spa – Florida Keys, Florida


You’ll have to take a boat or seaplane to get to this resort which hints at how off the grid you’ll be! There are no TVs or phones and guests are encouraged to put their personal electronics away and focus on relaxing while drinking champagne. 

Lake Placid Lodge – Lake Placid, New York 


This lodge offers television-free rooms and you’ll be encouraged to leave your phone and personal electronics at the front desk when checking in. There is an abundance of outdoor activities such as hiking and boating, so you’ll never get bored. 

Breitenbush Hot Springs – Willamette National Forest, Oregon

Spend time at these hot springs and you’ll dine on vegetarian food, practice yoga, get a massage and embark on a meditative guided hike. This location is ideal for those who enjoy self-care and moving their bodies.
