Relax a bit: However, if you want to truly relax, you don’t need to leave home. How about sitting in the hot tub and enjoying the mountain views during the day or stargazing at night with your favorite beverage. Or, how about cooking a steak on the grill while watching the sun set over the mountains. After dinner, nothing beats sitting around the fire pit telling stories and roasting marshmallows.
