Tourist-saturated destinations do not always equal a fabulously relaxing vacation. Sometimes you just need to get away, really away. Forget tourist hot spots and head to somewhere more remote but beautiful.
1. Dry Tortugas – Florida
This is a small island about 70 miles off Key West that is perfect for a chilled but fun adventure. Dry Tortugas can only be reached by boat or seaplane, and its beaches are dotted with abandoned boats that once carried Cuban asylum seekers. The snorkeling here is amazing, as fish flock to the Jefferson Fort walls for shelter.
