It’s not secret we have an addiction. To technology. Our smartphones, computers, tablets, and televisions have us constantly plugged in. So much so that we find ourselves looking for reasons and excuses to be unplugged. With demanding jobs and social lives, we can feel pressured to always stay connected. But a digital detox is beneficial for our mental health and overall well being. And taking an unplugged vacation might just be the perfect place to start to completely detox and get away from it all.
You can find many ways to experience an unplugged vacation wherever you choose to travel. However, some destinations inspire you to get out, explore, connect with your loved ones, and just take the time to experience what is around you. Here are three of our favorite unplugged vacation destinations across the United States.
The great state of Colorado is a fantastic four seasons destination, with Aspen sitting in the heart of the rockies. Surrounded by mountains, you’ll want to take the time to breathe in the beautiful landscapes and scenery. Whatever outdoor sport you enjoy, you’ll find here in Aspen. Enjoy skiing, snowboarding, skating, and tubing in the winter, and biking, hiking, canoeing, and fishing in the summer. The fresh mountain air will inspire you to leave those electronics behind and make memories with your loved ones.
When on an unplugged vacation, you want to ensure your accommodations also offer amenities that allow you to unwind and recharge. The St. Regis Aspen Resort has all you need and more. This luxurious property provides views so stunning that you’ll have no trouble removing your eyes from your screen. St. Regis Aspen gives you prime access to the best slopes, the eclectic downtown area, and fantastic hiking trails. The resort also offers the Remede Spa for pampering, a restaurant that serves farm-to-table meals, and an outdoor heated swimming pool for relaxing and nighttime stargazing.
Arizona is home to a number of great cities, all with gorgeous landscapes and plenty of outdoor fun and exploration to be had. Flagstaff is certainly no exception. One of the perks of staying in Flagstaff is that you’re only an hour from Grand Canyon National Park. Take a day trip and marvel at the splendor of the Grand Canyon. Explore the hiking trails, learn about the history at the geology museum, and visit the Indian ruins. And despite the tourist traffic, cell phone service is very sporadic, making it easy to just turn them off and enjoy.
Wyndham Flagstaff is your perfect homebase for exploring Flagstaff and beyond. The 2,200 acre resort campus offers a full range of amenities and activities to enjoy when you’re taking a break from exploring the Arizona outdoors. During your unplugged vacation, you’ll have access to two outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, a golf course and miniature golf course, exercise center, a picnic and barbeque area, and an on-site restaurant. The accommodations also make it easy to cut back on screen time with private balconies decked out with a private hot tub, cozy lofts for reading, full kitchens for cooking your own meals, and living rooms with fireplaces to light up family game night.
Escape to the coast of Maine for a relaxing seaside retreat in beautiful Ogunquit. More crowds are drawn to this quaint destination during the summer for lobster and long beach days. However, the winter brings a calming quiet that can be perfect for unplugging and partaking in a cozy, slow-paced getaway. If you do choose to visit during the summer, set sail on a Windjammer cruise off the coast of Maine so you can take in the views while dining on fresh baked goods, lobster, and fine local wines. Taking to the sea makes it easy to unplug and live in the moment with your family and friends.
No matter what time of year your visit, have direct access to the Atlantic Ocean when you stay at InnSeason Resorts The Falls at Ogunquit. This quaint, seaside resort gives you the perfect chance to escape from reality and simply be. Take casual walks along the beach, catch a performance at the local theater, explore the quirky downtown area shops and restaurants, or simply hang out at the resort. Accommodations at The Falls at Ogunquit have en-suite fireplaces, kitchenettes, and whirlpool tubs for added elements of relaxation. The indoor swimming pool is perfect for year-round use, and the exercise room will allow you to work up a sweat and keep your body moving.
Whether you do a complete digital detox on vacation with zero screen time, or limit phone and TV usage for just a set amount of time per day, an unplugged vacation can help you to get back in touch with yourself, your family and the great outdoors—all while clearing your headspace and rejuvenating your mind.
