The best new eco-getaways

Outside Magazine has published a list of the best new eco-getaways. You can find the winners in the March issue or in this USA Today article.

What qualities make a getaway "eco", you might ask? Based on this list, it looks like everything from energy-producing elevators and solar panels to the chance to hunt free-range elk.

Free range elk? Yup. At the Lodge at Sun Ranch in Montana, you can sleep in luxury cabins with dramatic mountain views, eat local organic food, get a massage, fish for trout, go horseback riding, or shoot elk. A little something for everyone.

The list also includes hotels in North Carolina, San Francisco, and the Gaia Napa Valley Hotel and Spa, which has earned a place as the only LEED gold-certified hotel in the U.S., and where you'll find a copy of An Inconvenient Truth in every room. Which reminds me, I really want to copy and laminate this photo and put it up next to the light switches I regularly forget to turn off.
