In less than two weeks, the day U.S. residents have all been waiting for will have finally come: November 8th, which marks the end of the presidential election season. After months of contentious debates, scandalous discoveries, and Janet Jackson-themed T-shirts, soon it will be all over.
And for those Americans who are worn out from nearly a year of screaming at their televisions, it’s time to relax and get out of town.
Calming Spa Trip
A spa vacation—or even just a trip to a day spa—is the perfect way to relax and rejuvenate after a draining election season. Visitors can indulge in head-to-toe healing treatments and leave feeling refreshed. Some hotels and resorts have even created packages to cater to the election stress.
The Coronado Island Resort & Spa Marriott in Coronado, California has been promoting its products as a way to de-stress. Sanctuary Spa in Paradise Valley, Arizona, Montage Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, and Rancho La Puerto, in Baja California, Mexico are just a few options to stressed-out voters looking for a way to unwind.

While Vermont and other New England destinations are safe options, this interactive map can tell leaf-peepers exactly where and when to go for the best foliage.
