7 Secluded U.S. Getaways For The Ultimate Introvert
Being an adventurous introvert is hard. All you want to do is go places and see things, but when too many people get in your way, all you can think about is escaping the crowd. But there are vacations for you, too, introverts, and the seven below don’t even require a passport. These secluded U.S. getaways are sure to fulfill your wanderlust dreams without spoiling your good ol’ “me” time.
1. Calistoga Ranch, California
While this resort is massive, it’s tucked away in Napa Valley with incredible views of the rolling hills. The staff at this resort give you personalized attention when you want it and then leave you alone to explore, whether that means biking or hiking excursions.
2. Dry Tortugas, Florida
Beach fans, you know it’s hard to enjoy your favorite spots because they’re crawling with tourists, families and couples in ***love***? Yeah, this destination isn’t like that at all. Dry Tortugas is 70 miles from Key West, and you have to take a seaplane or a boat just to get there. Go snorkeling, which is epic, or lay around the island’s amazing beach.
3. North Rim, The Grand Canyon
Talk about feeling like you’re on the edge of the world. The North Rim is famous for being the less touristy, more nature-centric part of the Grand Canyon, so if you’re big on the outdoors, you need to book a trip here ASAP.
4. Warm Springs, Georgia
If you’re a top-of-the-mountains-in-a-log-cabin type of traveler, the Mountain Top Resort is for you. It’s fairly unheard of and flies under the radar. Take your favorite person (or literally no one), cozy up by the fireplace and enjoy a kickass view of the stars.
5. Carova Beach, North Carolina
Imagine strolling along a beautiful beach with nearly no one else in sight…except wild horses. That’s what you’re in for when you go to Carova Beach. There are no hotels, but there are beach house rentals. You need a 4×4 vehicle just to drive on the roads (they’re literally sand). Go hang with the horses while soaking up the sunshine.
6. Lakeville, Pennsylvania
The Cove Haven resort is a must if you want to explore the rolling mountains and forests of Pennsylvania with barely seeing another person. It’s got an old-school vibe and during the off-season, it’s a fairly quiet destination. That means it’s all yours if you need an October getaway.
7. Olympic Coast, Washington
There is something so lonely, yet intriguing about the Northwest. Is it the rainy weather? The cool Pacific ocean? Camping is the preferred accommodation on this stretch of beach. Hiking up the trails to the spot is sure to result in pure happiness and — the best part of all — you’re not likely to see anyone else around.
