Unique Destinations: 5 Tips for a One-of-a-Kind Vacation

Vacations don’t come around nearly often enough, so when they do, you should take advantage of them. Say goodbye to standard hotel rooms in a typical tourist destination. After all, would you rather have a hotel room with four boring walls or one that can offer you an underwater view? You’re unique — your vacation should be, too.

Here’s a list of “in your dreams” vacation ideas inspired by a USA Today report that will ensure you have a vacation to brag about.

1. Space ballooning

When Earth vacations start to get too drab, opt for a change in scenery with space tourism. Helium balloons can send tourists in a specially designed luxury capsule up to the edge of space. A four-hour flight will cost $75,000, but the view makes it all worth it. “Seeing the Earth hanging in the ink-black void of space will help people realize our connection to our home planet and to the universe around us,” World View CEO Jane Poynter said in a statement to USA Today. “It is also our goal to open up a whole new realm for exercising human curiosity, scientific research and education.”
