Foto Friday: Choose Your Own Adventure

by Devon on November 2, 2012

When it comes to vacations, everyone has their own style. Many people like to travel within a budget, while others prefer to go all out and splurge on some luxury digs. Some like an active getaway, while the rest (us often included) just want to kick back and relax. Whether you’re a beachgoer or a mountain-climber, or whether you prefer to get there by plane, train, or automobile, Oyster wants to know which vacation you would choose: Over-the-top luxury or rustic tranquility? Take a look at the options below and then enter your answer in the comments section.

Option 1: Over-the-Top Luxury

The Viceroy Miami is luxury at its finest

Luxe example: Miami is not shy about turning on the glitz and the glamour. The flashy coastal city is home to a number of upscale hotels, including the Viceroy in the bustling downtown area. The hotel’s crowning achievement is the 28,000 square foot spa, designed by Philippe Starck. The spa includes a water lounge, juice bar, redwood saunas and eucalyptus steam rooms, and massive gym with a yoga and Pilates studio. With amenities like these, luxury travelers will feel right at home pampering themselves with the finest the Magic City has to offer.

Option 2: Rustic Tranquility

Who needs to make a fuss at a place like the Franciscan Lakeside Lodge in Lake Tahoe?

Rustic example: For those who like getting in touch with Mother Nature on vacation, Lake Tahoe is full of accommodations for all budgets that offer a laid-back, tranquil vibe. But for the true outdoor experience, Franciscan Lakeside Lodge is perfect for DIY travelers who would simply rather rough it (in the best way possible). The rooms come relatively well-equipped, but with grounds featuring a sandy beach, grills, and plenty of recreational activities, the lodge makes it easy for guests to disconnect from modern conveniences. After all, who needs a water lounge when you have a breathtaking view of the mountains from your own private lakeside retreat?
