Full screen
1 of 10|#1 Calistoga Ranch | Calistoga, California|Located in the northern end of Napa Valley, Calistoga Ranch blends nature and luxury into a 157-acre slice of Eden. The 50 room resort offers guests the best of the region's food, wine and scenery, along with an award-winning spa and a private lake.
2 of 10|#2 TreeHouse Point | Issaquah, Washington|Take your love of the great outdoors to new heights at TreeHouse Point, an adults-only retreat outside Seattle where you can stay in one of six actual treehouses. The cabins are relatively plush (heating, electricity, antique furniture), but lest you forget you're roughing it, the only bathroom facilities are outside and shared.
3 of 10|#3 Lana'i City | Lana'i, Hawaii|The Hawaiian island of Lana'i is almost completely owned by Larry Ellison, co-founder of Oracle and one of the wealthiest men in the world. One of the few ways to experience the 2% that isn't owned by him is to check in to one of the former pineapple plantation's two Four Seasons resorts.
4 of 10|#4 Dunton Hot Springs | Dolores, Colorado|The former ghost town now known as Dunton Hot Springs boasts 13 historic log cabins and cottages, each hand-built by the miners who once called the area home. In the heart of town you'll find a restored saloon, a dance hall, and a hot springs bath house. One cabin even has its own personal hot spring.
5 of 10|#5 Lake Austin Spa Resort | Austin, Texas|The grounds of Lake Austin were once the site of a rodeo training camp, but today they're dedicated to more peaceful pleasures. Visitors to the wellness retreat indulge in spa treatments, fitness sessions, yoga, meditation, chef-prepared healthy cuisine, and a variety of workshops and classes.
6 of 10|#6 The Resort At Paws Up | Greenough, Montana|Enjoy an 'American safari' at Paws Up, a working cattle ranch in Western Montana. The resort's luxury tents provide an unfiltered connection with the natural beauty of the landscape without sacrificing elegance and comfort. Activities include horseback riding, fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, and other outdoorsy pursuits.
7 of 10|#7 Cal-A-Vie | Vista, California|Vista, California's French-style health resort brings the Mediterranean to 200 private acres overlooking vineyards and fields of lavender. Cal-a-Vie's award-winning wellness program is the main draw, but the exclusive 18-hole golf course next door is also a highlight.
8 of 10|#8 Willamette Valley | Oregan|While others are suffering through family meals at Easter, do what they wish they were doing: drinking as much wine as possible. The Willamette Valley in Oregon is not as famous as Napa or Sonoma in California, but it's blessed with dozens of pristine wineries, quaint B&Bs, and top-notch restaurants.
9 of 10|#9 C Lazy U Ranch | Granby, Colorado|Time travel to the wild, wild west (Will Smith not included). at C Lazy U Ranch. The dude ranch is most famous for its year-round horseback riding program, but offers a wide range of seasonally-rotating activities. If you're a total tenderfoot, you can stick to the game rooms, spa, and gourmet dining instead.
10 of 10|#10 US Virgin Islands |Together Saint Croix, Saint John, and Saint Thomas make up America's Caribbean paradise. Each island has a distinct personality. St. Thomas is known for luxury. St. Croix's sugar cane plantations and rum distilleries attract history buffs. St. John is a favourite with nature lovers and newlyweds. Rates are lowest in spring, and you'll skip the sticky summer weather.

The Easter weekend is approaching, which means family time for some and an excuse to escape town for others. Even if you don’t celebrate, who amongst us can resist an opportunity to travel or say sayonara to the office?
