Highlands, North Carolina
Not everyone’s idea of an escape involves a secluded tropical island. So head to The Old Edwards Inn and Spa in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina where you’re much more likely to step on crunchy leaves than white sand. With an 18-hole golf course offering sweeping vistas, a 25,000 square foot spa, and farm-to-table restaurants on-site, you might never leave the grounds -- though Main Street’s charming antique shops and crafts stores may lure you away for an afternoon.
