Part of what defines a getaway is the freedom from responsibility. A new place, some refreshing faces and warm bodies, no reservations. Cutting away the puppet strings from the people we have to answer to and the paperwork on our desks is what a vacation should be. So spread your wings a little and go wild in one of the best venues in the country – the hotel.

Believe it or not hotels have the most chill places to lounge or bump and grind the night away. There are the infinity pools, rooftop bars selling the most knockout drinks, the restaurants and hotel-based clubs which only allow A-listers to go through and not to mention the grand rooms which can house concerts or large events. In this list we have compiled the best places to get down for a wild night.

Unhealthy eating is not just bad for your body but also bad for the environment. Take for example the burger you ate during lunch. We all know that the cholesterol from the patty and the oil can block your heart. But did you know that the act of raising the livestock where the meat for your burger came from, actually contributed greenhouse gases into the atmosphere? According to the UN Food and Agricultural Organization the entire act it takes to make a 500 oz burger from raising the cow to killing and cutting it releases greenhouse gasses equivalent to driving a car for 10 miles.

Enter Farm-to-Table Restaurants, eating places which utilize produce and livestock grown locally in the community where their operation is based. Since the ingredients can be found in their neighborhood, these establishments do not support the transport systems that transport imported food and lessening pollution in the process. The proximity of the producers guarantees the freshness of the items. Diners eat vegetable dishes handpicked from the nearby farm just two hours ago. As the restaurant grows, so do the local farmers who are the partners of such businesses.

Best spots for stunning city views

A spectacular city view from atop a building is something that appeals to most people. In hotels, the room with a view commands a higher rate and yet they still attract the attention of lots of travelers. Perhaps man’s fascination with an aerial view of a city is brought about by one of the key aspects of life here on this planet: gravity.

We’re perpetually anchored to the earth, and that means being used to seeing cities from the ground up. Turn your gaze to the left or the right and you’ll see walls, buildings, trees, and other structures. But when you’re hundreds of meters off the ground, suddenly it seems that the whole world has opened up. Before you is a sprawling city, without borders, and only endless stretches of land and water as far as the eye can see. Sometimes, the view really can take your breath away.
