Here are a few escapes on our wish list this summer.

Greer If you're looking to get back to basics and escape the crowds, Greer is just the place. The little town is in the heart of the White Moun-tains, and just a few miles north of Pinetop. Don't look for cell phone re-ception or a Wi-Fi hotspot in this town -- it's all about nature.

For the avid outdoorsperson, Greer is home to hidden campgrounds, quiet lakes, and trails. And if you're looking for a little more comfort, there are plenty of cabins for rent, ranches that offer horseback riding, and neighborhood bars that'll pour you a pint to soothe your high-tech withdrawals.
