7) Lake Tahoe, CA, USA
The #2 spot-holder for Best Relaxing Getaways in the USA, Lake Tahoe sits right along the California and Nevada border and has a consistent flow of tourists year-round. There are plenty of adventurous things to do when you stay in Lake Tahoe, but if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, its natural beauty is unbeatable. The Kings Beach State Recreation Area is a 3-mile-long beach and 28-acre park full of places to play and relax. The area offers summer swimming, boating, picnic areas, a playground, beautiful views, and tons of areas to sunbathe. Tourists also love the Emerald Bay State Park, which was carved long ago by glaciers. Not only are its views one-of-a-kind and photo-worthy, but you can also scuba dive the Underwater Park, visit a 1920s Scandinavian-architecture summer home, or stay overnight at one of several campgrounds.
