What’s your perfect escape? Some go to the beach, while others prefer lakes. But you always look up to the mountains. Whether it’s because of the quiet trails or the stunning views, you’re always mesmerized by the high peaks. Here are three magical mountains to add to your must-see list, plus a secluded getaway right near the slopes.
Chocolate Hills: Watch the sun creep toward the horizon from a viewing platform, where it looks like Hershey’s Kisses are floating on Bohol Island.
Banfora: See dome-shaped hills that have been sculpted out of limestone near waterfalls in Burkina Faso.
Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park: Find lava tubes, craters, petroglyphs, and an active volcano on the Big Island.
Galena: Go snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, or downhill skiing, before returning to a cozy lodge and a gourmet dinner in Illinois.
