Hiking Trails to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

The new year is still a few days away, but you’re already thinking about your resolution. You could restart your workout routine at the gym. It probably won’t be long until you get bored running on the treadmill again, though. So this year, you should give your goal a fighting chance by exercising outside whenever possible. Bonus points when you can add it to an already-in-the-works vacation.

Cooper Island: Find gorgeous views of the British Virgin Islands, narrow strips of land connecting little islands, and beaches strewn with pretty shells on an island that’s practically deserted—except for a little beach club that’s a perfect happy hour spot.
