Vacation alternatives



How to get away from it all

If global events make you want to skip vacationing this year, consider an off-beat alternative. You can spend up to two weeks clearing new trails or rehabilitating old ones on a Volunteer Vacation with the American Hiking Society ( ). The program costs $80, and travel to and from the site could be tax deductible.

If you want more luxury and less work in the woods, book a room in a lodge in one of the National Parks. Xanterra Parks & Resorts ( ) operates lodges and restaurants in 10 national parks, including Yellowstone, Death Valley, and Mount Rushmore.
