There’s a chance you’ve seen this cabin stay before, and it’s with good reason. This treehouse is tucked away in the heart of Atlanta, yet it is a supremely dreamy getaway that’s absolutely bucket list worthy. Made up of two treehouses and a deck all connected by rope bridges and fairy lights, this stay is among the most romantic out there. With tons of floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty of privacy due to the heavily forested lot, the bedroom opens up to let the fresh air and nature in. You can even sleep with the bed just pushed out on a platform so you can see the twinkle of the stars and listen to the leaves brush against the wind. If you want quality time together, this is a breathtaking place to spend it.

Enjoy the porch if the weather is nice, but you can also easily watch the snowfall from the cozy living room with your favorite movie playing on the television.

Off the Grid Cabin in West Bolton, Vermont

AirBnb

This rustic cabin rental is truly what it means to get off the grid. You even have to hike 10 minutes from your car just to get to the cabin, so pack light. There isn’t running potable water or refrigeration, but the 20-acre rental is well worth the lack of modern necessities. This is simply your chance to rely on starting a fire for the wood-burning stove, the only heat source in the cabin, to keep warm on cooler nights. When you are not curled up inside the stunning log cabin, you should be out exploring the lush forests that surround it. Go for a dip in the swimming hole, hike Libby’s Look or visit Preston Pond all within walking distance.

Storm Mountain Lodge is an amazing retreat that would make a perfect honeymoon cabin to book. The lodge includes a main house with a gift shop that sells souvenirs, snacks, and bath bombs to use in your cabin’s clawfoot tub. There’s also a bar and restaurant in the lobby where you can relax before dinner. While you are close enough to Banff that you can eat out at other restaurants, the drinks and dishes are so delicious, you’ll want to eat far more than breakfast there. The charming cabins are just big enough for two and include a sitting area next to your own fireplace. The porch is filled with plenty of wood stacked for you to keep it burning, too. There are no televisions in the room, so this stay is just the chance you might be looking for to unplug.

You will, however, find an amazing sauna and fireplace inside, both of which will help you find a warm peacefulness. When you want entertainment, just go for a walk outside or look for the Northern Lights dancing across the night sky.

7 telltale signs it’s time to put the ‘backpacker’ life behind you
How to travel like an adult and leave the backpacker lifestyle behind
A backpacker.

There’s something special about the backpacker lifestyle. It tends to be filled with rapid jags through a series of exciting cities, making friends in hostels, and partying every step of the way. Generally speaking, it’s a pursuit for those in their late teens or early twenties who have the energy, extroversion, and hangover tolerance for such things. Eventually, however, this form of travel begins to wear on you.

That doesn’t mean you need to stop traveling, but it might be an indication that you’ve outgrown the backpacker phase of your life. To that end, we’re taking a look at a few signs that it might be time to move beyond the way of backpack travelers. We'll also give you some travel tips that will help you be a more mature (and less hungover) traveler.

Here’s what to do in Bangkok if you’ve only got 48 hours
Make the most of your short visit to Bangkok
A bunch of Buddhas.

Clocking in at 10.7 million residents, Bangkok, Thailand, is an incredible, massive undertaking of a city. A seemingly endless sprawl of low-rise buildings punctuated by massive skyscrapers and tranquil temples, delicious food and bustling bars everywhere, there is an endless range of ways one could spend their days exploring what BKK has to offer. Sadly, most Thailand tourism consists of travelers who are only stopping by Bangkok for a couple of days on their way into or out of the country. So what is one to do when they only have 48 hours in Bangkok?

I’ve spent a lot of time in Bangkok, so I know its ins-and-outs well. One of the main challenges to experiencing the city in a short burst involves the sheer size of the place and the traffic that tends to inundate it, which makes it difficult to get anywhere fast unless it happens to be along a Sky Train route (more on that below). Thailand travel has decreased substantially since the pandemic, though, and this has noticeably diminished the traffic and crowds. In any case, it’s important to factor getting around into your plans. To that end, here’s a solid two-day itinerary.
