America's Top Three Most Relaxing Destinations (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Feeling the holiday stress? A sniff of the calming scents of lavender and chocolate could be helpful, but, of course, we think taking a trip is always the ticket.

While destinations that are predisposed to craziness, like Miami or Vegas, might not be the most zen, there are plenty of places in the U.S. that are all about relaxation. For the top three, check out the video above.

To get the most out of a relaxation-centric trip, follow a few travel detox tips like spending a little extra money for a day pass to the airport lounge, or getting the extra-legroom seat to name a few. And, make sure to try to snag a first-class seat for an economy price.

And, by all means, don't worry about these things while traveling.

Where do you go in the U.S. when you need to destress?
