Best Overall Stay: Washington Jefferson Hotel
Yellowstone National Park, WY
The most notably famous of our national parks, it’s a must see! Hang out nearby old faithful with a basket of snacks from the nearby food stand and enjoy lounging while you wait in anticipation to see if she’ll decide to explode!

Picturesque and quaint, a picnic in Martha’s Vineyard is a must. Bring a bottle of bubbly for you and your partner while your kids play in the waves.

Redwood Forest, CA
Eat among some of the oldest trees in the U.S.! After a long hike you can re-boot with snacks from the food court in the camp. Just don’t forget to BYO-blanket!
