You might have already gone to a warm, sunny beach or perhaps headed to a ski resort for your last vacation and are looking for something just a bit different. When you are looking for a unique vacation experience within the United States, you certainly have some great choices to pick from. Here are some of the top places you can choose when you want a unique place for your next vacation.
The Queen Mary
If you love a bit of history and have always dreamed of vacationing aboard an ocean liner then the Queen Mary is the place for you. This ship was once one of the most luxurious ships on the ocean and was converted into a floating hotel docked in Long Beach, California. The hotel boasts three award-winning restaurants, a few hundred first-class staterooms, and the ship is decorated just as it had been when it sailed the seas. For those who are interested in the supernatural, the ship is considered one of the most haunted places in the United States.
Jules' Undersea Lodge
In keeping with the water theme, if you really like adventure and diving is more of your thing, then you can book a stay at Jules' Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida. This is the world's first underwater hotel where you can stay under the waves overnight, take scuba diving courses and have great adventures all underwater. You must be a certified scuba diver, however, since you must be able to dive to the lagoon floor to reach the hotel.
Red Caboose Motel
Another very unique and historical location to spend your vacation is the Red Caboose Motel located in Ronks, Pennsylvania. It is situated in the heart of Amish country in Lancaster County. The caboose cars offer very comfortable rooms that have refrigerators, microwaves, TVs, private bathrooms, and showers, plus bathtubs and you are spoiled with beautiful views of the Strasburg Railroad and the countryside. The restaurant serves meals made with local ingredients ensuring they are fresh and delicious. The motel is located near the popular Pennsylvania Train Museum and the Dutch Wonderland.
If you are a traveler who prefers staying in a hostel instead of a traditional hotel, then the Bivvi should be one of the spots you head to. It is located in Breckenridge, Colorado and boasts of stunning views of the mountains and has very modern lodgings. You can choose to stay in a more traditional type of hotel room or stay in one of the more hostel like rooms complete with bunk beds. There are private showers and bathrooms, and the rooms have balconies showcasing the mountain views.
