Here Are 15 Islands In The U.S. That Are An Absolute Must Visit

Life on an island can be a compromise. On one hand, you get the peace and quiet that comes with living miles away from the mainland. Depending on the area, you may even get tropical beaches, palm trees, and exotic wildlife. On the other hand, you also get the crushing isolation that comes with living miles away from the mainland, shipping costs driving grocery prices through the roof, and swarms of tourists may descend like locusts every year.

So what’s an island lover to do? Rather than move to that amazing island, just visit instead. Join the happy locust swarm and get your fix of island adventure without having to deal with all the inconvenience of actually living on one year-round. Check out one (or all!) of these incredible American islands and get the best of both worlds.
