All across the country, there are many places that introverted people can feel at home. It does not necessarily have to be a small town to help an introvert feel at ease. There are big cities as well that have peaceful neighborhoods, plazas, corners, and viewpoints where an introverted person will be able to their own thoughts without being distracted by annoying city noise.
Here are some cool destinations that you can visit in the US if you want to escape from your everyday routine.
Breckenridge has a laid back vibe that every introvert will love. This quintessential Western town is also called Breck by the locals. Surrounded by the Smoky Mountains, Breckenridge is a famous departure point for the ski centers around the town. The charming town is full of historic buildings, restaurants, shops, and inns. You can take a gondola ride up the mountain and enjoy the serene environment. On the way back, ride a bike downhill and make a break along the way. Stop by some spring, lay down and read your favorite book or perhaps try a spot of meditating.
Santa Barbara, California
Introverts will enjoy the plazas in Santa Barbara where there are a lot of cute cafes and restaurants. A visit to the nearby Channel Islands offers quiet hiking, kayaking and whale watching. There is no other place like the Santa Barbara beach and the harbor is perfect for stand-up paddle boarding. If this is not satisfying enough, drive to the Ynez Mountains for more quality hiking and some spectacular vistas of the region. Or perhaps take a wine tour and taste some of the best wines produced in America.
Charleston, South Carolina
The best way to see Charleston is by walking through the historic district and stopping to see all the beautifully ornamented houses. There are many nooks and crannies around the town where you can hide for a moment, recharge your batteries, or have lunch in a small restaurant. If you are yearning for an even more remote spot, then head out of town to the Southern plantations and have a walk in the gorgeous gardens.
Sedona is often described as a healing destination with an incredible energy. On the other hand, here you can enjoy absolute solitude and walk for hours without being bothered. If you decide that you want to do something more than walking, Sedona offers countless outdoor activities. If that’s not what you want, go to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, which is built into the red rock cliffs, for a perfectly quiet spot for meditation.
If you are looking for the perfect place for a spiritual retreat, then Ojai is what you’re looking for. Located in Ventura County in California, Ojai is a popular destination because of its boutique hotels, its meditation centers, and the agricultural markets for organic food. Artists, writers, and musicians have been moving to Ojai since always, therefore the place is full of art galleries and studios. If art is not your thing then visit some of the vineyards or go horseback riding in Ventura. Golf loving introverts can also find their place in Ojai.
These are the best 5 places in the US that any person looking for peace and quiet will enjoy, depending on the needs, the taste, and their affinities, of course. Even if you’re not an introvert, but you like to experience a peaceful, artistic city, with a good wine selection, and amazing natural surroundings, then pick your favorite from this list and start planning a trip. Have fun and good luck!
