6 Unconventional Destinations for Your Next Vacation
You’re planning your next vacation, but you want this one to be different. Maybe you’ve been to all of the standard tourist destinations, or maybe you just want to see a part of the world that’s a little bit unusual. These places are all unique in their own way and have one thing in common — they’re certainly not boring.
1. Mont St. Michel, France
This tidal island, found off the coast of Normandy, France, has tides that vary as much as 50 feet. During the 8th Century, a bishop established a small chapel there, which was followed by a Gothic abbey used as a prison during the French Revolution a few centuries later, according to the Los Angeles Times. In the 19th Century, a causeway connecting the island to the mainland was built, keeping the sea from washing away silt collecting around the island. When a dam also rose, land begin to creep up on the island, and the site now attracts millions of visitors each year. This island has it all: hotels, shops, restaurants, and plenty of events.
