Taking a vacation is always a wonderful thing. However, in order to take a vacation, you’ve got to travel, and travelling (in and of itself) isn’t always all that it’s cracked up to be. There are the long road trips that can seem fun when you’re starting out, but then quickly become grueling as you run out of things to listen to and to talk about. And, don’t even get us started on air travel, which only seems to get more and more burdensome by the year…
That’s why you might wish to travel in a different manner when taking your next vacation… For example, wouldn’t it be both fun and memorable to sail to your next vacation destination? If you think so, then this is the list for you! On it, we’re going to introduce you to some truly exceptional places where that you don’t need to drive or fly to in order to reach them. Instead, you can board a sailboat, and dock right in the marina.
Sound like a fun way to spend your next vacation? We certainly think it is! So, let’s check out 20 gorgeous pictures of resorts and hotels you can sail to!
