Unconventional Vacations: Unique Places To Stay When Travelling

Tired of the same old hotel or bed and breakfast every time you travel? Looking for a bit more adventure on your vacation, even down to where you sleep for the night? Plenty of locales offer unique lodging for those looking for something different on their trips. One hotel after another can get boring for a seasoned traveler, so it’s best to be aware of all the other options out there so you can get the most out of your time traveling. Here are just a few unique types of places for you to stay in on your next vacation.


  • Farms: For an active couple in love with the majesty of the countryside, this is bound to be the quaint destination you’re looking for. Several farms nowadays offer lodging for travelers looking to get away from the bustle of city life. Just make sure you’re prepared for lots of activity; many farmstays allow people to help out around the farm with the animals, gardening, and more.


  • Glamping: For environmentalists or people who are looking for camping that isn’t quite as rough-and-tumble as sleeping out on the ground, there’s the new trend of “glamping,” or glamorous camping. There are plenty of places to rent for this, from tiny trailer homes to remodeled campers. This is perfect for the adventurous, outdoorsy traveler who wants to be out in nature without leaving all the comforts of home behind.


  • Castles: For the couple looking for something a bit more regal, castle tours and stays could be the plan for you. You’re more likely to find these abroad than in the United States, so look for a castle vacation in Ireland, Scotland, or other European destinations for this unique plan. A castle vacation in Ireland is bound to be exquisite; with over 3,000 miles of coastline on the island, you’re sure to find a castle with a view.
