Outside Magazine : Near Is the New Far
Honest eco-travel no longer requires a passport. These four domestic getaways treat you—and the environment—right.

Proximity Hotel, Greensboro, NC
Striving for the country's first LEED Platinum certification in a hotel, five-month-old Proximity features green tech that doubles as decadence: One hundred solar panels heat 60 percent of the hotel's water, and each of the hotel's 147 rooms comes with a seven-foot-square window to maximize natural light.
Green-O-Meter: 5
Proximity is home to the first regenerative-drive elevator in North America, which captures electricity produced by brakes while the car descends. Doubles from $199; proximityhotel.com

In addition to North Carolina's Proximity Hotel, the following U.S. hot spots also made our green list. Check out the full reviews of each property in Outside’s March 2008 issue, on newsstands February 12.
