Sure, you could journey up a cliff, mountain, or hilltop for a blustery reward of sweeping, cinematic views. Or you could travel to cliffside hotels and stay in a boutique hotel, resort, or lodge perched several hundred (or thousand) feet above sea level for those same pinch-me vantage points 24/7—and then some.
