The majority of Americans are feeling stressed these days. Doesn't it make you want to get away?

A vacation is a perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, and unload some of that stress that's on your shoulders.

In fact, we spend nearly $800 billion on crafting getaways and adventures for ourselves every year. But if you spend a lot or a little, there's a peaceful escape from the daily grind that's perfect for you.

No need to add to your stress with searching for the best getaway. We've got five relaxing vacation ideas that you're going to love!
