America is a land of remarkable contrasts, where you can find everything from dramatic wilderness, mountains, and coastlines to some of the world's most exciting cities—and vacations give us the chance to step into a different world and escape our everyday. Whether you're a city dweller looking to reconnect with nature, or you want to immerse yourself in the vibrancy of city life, the opportunities are endless.
You also don't need to travel far for dramatically different experiences—say, an off-grid cabin in Georgetown, Texas, that's just a half-hour drive from an architecturally designed home in buzzing downtown Austin; or a luxurious tiny home on an island with views of Manhattan that's just an hour from a quintessential Brooklyn townhouse in New York. Here, we've curated some of our favourite vacation rentals from across the country to create a collection that covers the best of both worlds so you can take your pick of city or country getaways.
