4 Affordable Escapes to Melt Away Holiday Second Helpings

Nobody has enough will power to completely resist holiday temptations. And despite those forthcoming New Years resolutions to reignite ones passion for exercise … watch out! The January 2, 2018 “gymscape” looks more like a can full of FAT sardines. That’s why we are recommending something different, and effective. Take a few days to recharge, revitalize, cleanse and cardiocize – in a place where you can focus (and forgive yourself if you have to;). That’s why we are recommending these affordable escapes to melt away holiday second helpings.

We even have something for you, whether you are a “winter sport” or a “summer sport.”

Cold Weather

Whitefish, Montana

Whitefish, MT
Whitefish, Montana is where angels vacation

Think Aspen, without the glitz. Whitefish is about 30 minutes south of Canada. It’s quaint. It’s charming. And it is one of the best ski mountains in the west. There are Lodges and Resorts and Spas, either located at the base of the mountain – or close enough that there’s a free shuttle. Eat healthy food. Hit the freshies. You will return to civilization a new person!

Steamboat Springs, Colorado

If Whitefish had Hot Springs

So, if you are YES on skiing but less “spa unwind” than you are “outdoor chill” – book Steamboat. You get world class skiing on one of Colorado’s great hills. PLUS the city’s geothermal hot springs are known for their healing properties. Great for singles, couples, families. Book it – and you shall go. Very Kevin Costner.

Warm Weather

Point Mulatre, Dominica

Stairway on Boiling Lake Hike

Here you have incredible weather, affordable rates for the season and some incredible options to get your health on. There is the amazing Victoria Falls hike, the (this one’s extreme) Boiling Lake hike and the no joke Valley of Desolation excursion. If hiking’s not enough, you will find world-class snorkeling, ocean kayaking and some amazing lagoon jumping and swimming just minutes from wherever you choose to say.

Phoenix, Arizona

Okay. Number one, Phoenix is loaded with hotels, resorts, health-conscious eateries and legendary for hiking mountains. So, say your passport isn’t “ret ta go.” Phoenix is your answer. This city has some of the best urban hikes on the globe. Ranging in difficulty from easy (day hiking in Phoenix Mountain preserve), to moderate (Pinnacle Peak), to super-tough (Piestewa Peak), to make you cry the first time (Camelback) – you simply cannot do better. Go fancy. Go cheap. Play golf. Do yoga. If you want to get back in shape and re-charge quickly – Phoenix is the best place in the United States for it. Period.
