Dead Sea

forgo the private resorts
When most think of the Dead Sea they think of Israel, but remember you can visit it in Jordan too. We hired a driver to take us to an area where locals go. We were able to rinse off in a nearby stream and we didn't have to pay a fee. Floating and smearing mud on our skin was fun, but I think the best part was seeing the salt deposits along the shoreline. Simply beautiful!
(I am honestly not sure exactly where this photo was taken. Karak just came up when I clicked on the Dead Sea...sorry I can't be more specific.)

Dead Sea Oasis
On the Jordan/Israel border, we stayed at the Marriott Dead Sea Resort. Umbrellas dot the beach and the salty Dead Sea
