We’re having a serious case of wanderlust. Our usual trips to the nearest beach, a friend's cabin, or some cozy inn just aren’t offering the kind of adventure we’re after. This summer, we're jonesin' for a culture fix in a totally new city, somewhere so far flung we won’t run into anyone we know. We even want to learn to cook like a local — in Hanoi! We just need to go off the grid in unchartered territory.
In that spirit, we’ve assembled 13 off-the-beaten-path summer destinations worthy of your hard-earned vacation days. From a $100-a-night island vacation to stargazing in Chile, your summer escape awaits.
