Looking for an off-the-beaten-path weekend getaway this summer? Look no further than Hornby Island. Home to beautiful coastal parks, several amazing wineries and countless local artists, Hornby Island is the perfect place to go off the grid and avoid the crowds.
North Cascades National Park is one of Washington state’s (and America’s) most underrated and least frequented national parks.

We chose Petit St. Vincent (PSV), a private island in St Vincent and the Grenadines, for our honeymoon in November 2018. We had always wanted a beach vacation for our honeymoon, and after much research and consideration (Mexico, Hawaii, Bora Bora, Cuba, Costa Rica…) we remembered this website that had helped us plan our Peru trip in 2017.
Situated directly between Vancouver Island and Washington State, Orcas Island is the largest island in the San Juans and, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful. With a size of just over 148 square kilometers, the island serves just the right amount of civilization while still providing a remote escape.
