Where To Avoid The Holidays Altogether

Ah, the holidays. The time for gifts, the time for drinking, the time for family. But what if you're just OVER it?

According to a recent Hipmunk survey, 18% of respondents were actively looking for places to go to AVOID their family (non-millenials were 32% more likely to have this point of view).

What if you just want to get away from not just family but everybody? You can head to one of these 5 remote destinations that take a ton of time to get to, places without Internet, or other super remote spots like a national park in Brazil, a Pacific island you can't even find on a map or even a beach that is only accessible by swimming up to it (see below).
