Desert Nomad House

If you have ever felt the urge to just get away from it all, this is the perfect unusual place for you. Rick Joy’s “Desert Nomad House” is located in the Tucson desert right beside…nothing, absolutely nothing (with the exception of the Saguaro cacti). The simple design consists of a rusted steel box housing a 780 square foot bathroom, a 440 square foot bedroom with a 200 square foot office, a living room, a kitchen, and a dining area. This is the epitome of a tranquil get away.


Your Own Fiji Island

Picture this: crystal clear blue waters, a tropical floral scented breeze, a soothing shore echoing the sound of the sea, clear blue skies that transform into a brilliant display of celestial lights at night, and best of all, no one around. That’s right, no screaming children, obnoxious people, not even an your neighbor’s yappy dog. This is the luxury of spending a day or two on your own, rented private Fiji Island. Depending on the island a night can cost around $2,500.


Panda Inn

Metropolis, Illinois

If you are a die hard fan of Superman, then you know of his hometown Metropolis. But did you know that the city actually exists? Metropolis, Illinois, is the only city in the world dedicated to Superman (complete with a gigantic superman statue). If you really want to get into the Superman hype, the best time to go is in June when the locals put on a festival called “The Superman Celebration,” which attracts book collectors and fans from all over the United States. To be fair, the real Metropolis is not the gigantic Super City depicted in the comics. Rather, it resembles more of a small town (think Smallville).


The Dog Bark Park Inn, Idaho, USA

The entire hotel is not only dog-shaped, but it also holds the record for being the world’s largest beagle! From doggie decor in the rooms to delicious dog shaped cookies, any dog lover would feel right at home in this hotel.
