It can seem like your whole world extends only as far as your local liquor store. But the truth is that there’s a much bigger world out there, waiting for you to discover it.
Now that you’ve put down the bottle, it’s time to pick up your suitcase and treat yourself to a vacation. Here are five of the best travel destinations for sober travelers.
London is a beautiful city with a rich, extensive history. From wandering the dock to visiting Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, sober travelers can find tons to do.
Best of all, there’s an upcoming sobriety boot camp hosted in London. To find more information on this exciting event, check out this site.
- The Grand Canyon
Sometimes we get so in our own heads that we lose sight of how small we are in the world, which is precisely why the Grand Canyon makes for one of the best sober vacations.
Whether you’re coming to see the canyon itself or want to explore one of the area’s many hiking trails, the Grand Canyon is a great place to get some perspective again.
When it comes to relaxing sober vacations, it’s hard to beat the peace and tranquility of the beach. And few beaches compare to those found in Goa, India.
Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and treat yourself to a beachside sunset. White sands, crashing waves, and gorgeous marine life await you.
Be sure to check out our list of the area’s most secluded beaches to learn about our personal recommendations.
If you’re looking to avoid temptation, Provo-Orem, Utah may as well be paradise.
Why, you ask?
Because a reported 99.4% of its citizens reported infrequent or no use of alcohol, making it the soberest city in the entire United States.
And should the need to drink arise, you can distract yourself with one of Utah’s many natural wonders.
Take a drive through the peaceful Monument Valley or spend a day enjoying the fresh air as you hike among massive mountains at Zion National Park.
If you feel like your sobriety is in danger dont hesitate to seek help ASAP. Moving to another city might be a big help. I felt much better once I moved into a sober living facility in Colorado.

Enjoy world-class cuisine, take in a Broadway show, or stand in the middle of Times Square for an unforgettable experience.
And if you’re recently sober or get the itch to drink, you can stop into one of the dozens of sobriety meetings hosted around the city.
