We all need a break from time to time, a vacation away from the stresses of life, society and indeed our responsibilities. But short of heading to Neverland, what places provide this possibility? While Disney World is great for kids, it’s not exactly relaxing for parents. Though admittedly there are some wonderful places around parks like this where you can share a drink and enjoy the ambiance. So, let’s look at some of the places in the world you can go where you can literally feel your troubles melting away.

Traveling to Tuscany feels something like discovering a place lost in time. If the rest of Italy is a mixture of contemporary wonder and historical significance, Tuscany is a gentle reminder of when life used to be simpler. Rolling hills surround apricot colored villas that you will love spending a night or two in. In the middle of summer, the sky is dotted with candyfloss clouds and the only sound will be that of gentle footsteps on cobbled streets. You can retreat inside your villa or head down to the market and pick up some delicious foods, whether you are vacationing alone or with your entire family.

If Tuscany is a trip to the past, then Palm Springs is a gaze into the future. The minimalist housing designs are perfect for a relaxing environment, and you can lavish in the luxury of designer villas. Palm Springs is located in the desert of California, but with the lush green grass, this oasis feels like a cool, refreshing drink of water. Lie back in your private pool and let your troubles melt away under the hot Californian sun.

Venice. The floating city and one of the only places in the world where you can lie back in a gondola and drift through gorgeous architecture as though in a dream. Take the Venice food tour, and the gondola ride will be complemented beautifully by delightful delicacies wherever you stop. While you might think it’s difficult to relax in a city as popular as Venice, you will be surprised, the center square is often deserted at certain times through the day as a serene atmosphere washes over this picturesque location. With the gondolas, there are also plenty of places to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city itself, particularly during tourist season.


Lost In The Wilderness

There are lots of places where you can disappear into forests and surround yourself with towering peaks and tall trees. However, Boulder Colorado is certainly one of the best. While you’ll find plenty to see and do here for your typical vacation, you can also head out into the wild and plan on doing absolutely nothing. Wander across grass verges, sit and gaze down on hidden valleys and dip your feet into gentle streams. You can spend days here and never see anyone else around.

We hope you try at least one of these destinations for yourself and discover a truly relaxing vacation.
