We’re all slowly but surely stepping out of our homes for the first time in awhile. Bet money the first thing you’re not thinking is ‘mountain retreat’, right? The odd thing about this is that for generations, plenty of people flocked to the nearest mountains for fresh air, scenic views, and a chance to just get out of the dingy cities in which they resided. Now, all of a sudden, taking a trip to the mountains sounds like an adventure that you only took because you had to.
Some of this is marketing. For many years, the notion of what mountain life has been described as includes a lot of vittles, illegally-made spirits, and one too many banjos. As it turns out, modern mountain towns are about as awesome as any swanky getaway you can think of. What’s more, you dollar goes way further & the people are way nicer. Not sure what your vacations were like before the 2020 times, but all of this sounds pretty sweet.
Let’s say you decide to go out on a limb & make your first adventure after last year’s challenges a mountain retreat. Aside from booking your stay, you’re gonna want to find out what there is to do, right? Consider the following:

If you like this kind of personal pampering, then you’re gonna go ape over the ‘chill’ that comes with a mountain retreat. You name it & you’re gonna find it. Exploring The Terrain – There’s a pretty high likelihood that if you’ve never considered a mountain retreat, then you may not be the most outdoorsy kind of person.

Horseback riding, ATVs, and even rafting are some ways to really jump in feet first into mountain adventuring.
In terms of the last thing you may want to do while on a mountain retreat, well, it’s actually more about a state of mind. Every mountain town is different & brings something unique to the table. The best way to explore this kind of unique environment is to stay as flexible as possible. Far too often when we travel, we’re prone to stick steadfastly to an itinerary or stick with the familiar. That’s why vacations tend to feel like the same thing over and over again. Being willing to let yourself go a little gives you a chance to try something you never would have before. Is there a chance you won’t be a fan? Sure, but at least you tried. Considering the challenges the last 12-16 months have brought everyone on the planet, we owe it to ourselves to be a bit more adventurous & willing to live in the moment.
