Hotel pools might offer a great view but no one will argue that there is nothing better that swimming in natural bodies of water that nature has to offer. You might have done some laps around the pool but you might want to explore some of the most exotic destinations across te globe where you can take a dip, relax, and splash around:

Jellyfish Lake in Palau

It is not recommended but who will not take the opportunity of swimming with jellyfish, tens of thousands of them. The Jellyfish Lake is home to one kind of jellyfish that has lost its sting because it does not have to deal with predators. They float around and try to find food and you can swim with them without having to worry about getting hurt at all.

Dead Sea in Israel

San Francisco, one of the most popular travel destinations in the Western United States. Not only does it have fantastic weather, a glamorous celebrity life, and an active community for Gay Pride, but it is also ripe with entertainment venues, and things to see. There are so many attractions in San Francisco, that it is hard to know where to begin when compiling a list of the best.

If you’re looking for a perfect getaway from the stresses of everyday life, a beach vacation will fit the bill! There’s nothing better than lying in the sand, basking in the sun and hearing the sound of waves gently lapping the shore for hours on end.

It can be hard to decide where exactly to go for your beach vacation, however. Tourists have many choices of beaches to visit and even different regions of the world; here are just three classic destinations for beach vacations to help you make a decision.

Hawaii Beach

1. Hawaii

The islands of Hawaii offer a classic relaxing getaway. Hawaii is so used to tourists now that you can indulge in many activities catered exclusively to visitors, from golf to spa visits. Whether you choose to stay on Oahu, Maui, the Big Island, or elsewhere, you’ll find lots to do — or you can choose to do nothing at all.

Drinking a glass of wine in a simple room is not the same experience as sipping exact one under a canopy of stars. What defines the taste of any wine is the when and where you are sipping it.

This concept may anger the more logical minded members of the wine industry but several companies are already investing in wine tasting rooms. These tasting rooms offer a relaxed vibe and elegant window views of beautiful locales and are increasingly becoming part of big brewers’ calling cards.

The practice of making these structures to lure in possible customers have been started by newer wine industries belonging to Chile and Argentina and several states like Michigan in the United States for the American continent. In Europe, New Zealand and Austria have these rooms to lure in buyers. These architecturally elegant and scenery centered rooms invites the tasters to focus on their senses and the taste the wines provide.

With over 3oo wineries, Napa Valley, California is best known as a wine tasting destination.  However, if wine tasting isn’t your thing, or if you are traveling with children, there is plenty of other things to do in Napa Valley.

Go on Safari without going to Africa with Safari West.  Safari West is not a zoo, and it is not a theme park.

San Diego is a great place to visit. There’s the beach, the famous zoo and even the Disney Land theme park isn’t too far way.

San Diego hotels offer some great amenities for your vacation. You can find San Diego hotels to meet any need, whether you are looking for a suite with plush pillows and a great pool or a family friendly place for the whole group to stay.

Depending on the San Diego hotels you choose, they can make your vacation even more enjoyable. Oh, but what if you’re in San Diego for another reason. Like a business trip. That’s okay. Most San Diego hotels are equipped for business purposes, but you can’t go to San Diego and not have a little fun. Even if it is just at the fitness center offered by many San Diego hotels.
