4 Places You Should Go to Take a Self-Care Vacation 


Kevin Mangelschots

Self-care is an essential part of life in a fast-paced society where burnout is so common.

Sometimes it is not enough to simply take a bubble bath or read a book to relax. You occasionally need to get away and reset.

The five cities on this list offer something for anyone looking for a place to rejuvenate and lower their stress levels. 

  1. New York City, New York

New York City may seem like an unlikely choice, given the hustle and bustle. However, there are many things you can do to make your trip a soul-filling experience. Take a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge or visit the zoo in Central Park. 

See a game at the famous Yankee Stadium if you love sports. You can find tickets online for professional sports events at discounted prices. Simply filter by date, cost, and seat rating. Some ticket sites offer an interactive seating chart to get a virtual view of the field from your seat. 

Talk to a local realtor if you’re considering moving to NYC. The city has so much to offer that people commonly move there. Housing can be expensive and very competitive. One study shows that despite the high housing prices, NYC is affordable because of the low cost of food and transportation. 

  1. Sedona, Arizona

The Arizona landscape offers some of the most beautiful views in the country, and Sedona is breathtaking. It’s a prime spot for self-care because of its penchant for holistic wellness. You can find yoga retreats in the mountains and Reiki practitioners that offer engaging healing techniques. 

If you fall in love with the slow-paced, relaxing lifestyle in Sedona, consider moving there. The heavy tourist foot traffic makes it a great spot to start a small business, and you’ll find the people to be welcoming and kind. It’s a perfect spot for anyone in the New Age Movement. 

  1. Palm Springs, California

Style, heat, and relaxation are all key components of life in Palm Springs. Celebrities retreat to this location to get away from the hustle of Los Angeles. Therefore, you’ll have no trouble finding a spa with the treatments you want. It has the added benefit of just two weeks of cloudy days each year. That means you can go any time and experience beautiful sunny days. It offers excellent food and even better nightlife. 

If you’re thinking about relocating to Palm Springs, you’ll need deep pockets to dip into the luxurious real estate. The average rental unit is over $2,000 per month, and homes range in the high millions given the volume of celebrities that have vacation houses in the area.  

  1. Seattle, Washington

If you love coffee and eclectic shopping, Seattle is a great place for you. The mountains offer scenic hiking. For anyone who chooses to relax by reading a great book on a cloudy, rainy day, Seattle offers plenty of opportunities to reset. 

For nature lovers, Seattle is one of the most ecologically diverse places in the U.S. with farmlands, islands, a rainforest, and a desert. You can scout affordable housing online if you’re interested in moving there, and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to profit from your niche hobby.

Final note

Whether you just need a weekend getaway or you’re looking for a complete lifestyle change, every city on this list has something unique to offer.
