Top 5 Easy Weekend Getaway Ideas
Ever get the feeling you need to take a break and clear your head? Feel an urge for adventure but are limited by time? Perhaps a weekend getaway should be in your near future! Weekend getaways are a time-honored tradition that celebrates reconnecting, exploring and possibly even indulging. No matter where you live, a weekend getaway destination is always a great idea! These five quick trip ideas may be just what you need to get your creative juices flowing and clear your mind in an inspiring setting.
1. Lake-side Cabin
Getting in touch with nature is the perfect antidote for your hectic daily life. First, decide how much you want to rough it: You can stay in a cute, log cabin, book a site with room for your car or RV, or just sling on a backpack, go for a hike, and pitch a tent. Nowadays many campgrounds offer bathrooms with running water and hot showers. Whatever your style, once you’re immersed in nature, there’s usually plenty to do. Take a hike in the woods or amongst the mountains, take a swim in the lake or go fishing, and the most exciting part: s’more-making around the campfire!
The best thing about cruises is that the longer you wait, the better your chance on getting an incredible last-minute deal. What could be more exciting than waking up and choosing a random destination for you and your friends? One day you could be dreaming of blue water and palm trees or snow-tipped mountains and ice glaciers, and the next day you could be there! If you’re just looking for a quick weekend, it’s possible to find cruises offering prices starting from just $160 dollars! Plus, cruise operators always throw in some on-board amenities, free upgrades, and cash vouchers to expand the deal.
3. Explore Your Own World
How often do you visit the tourist sites in your own city? If you’re anything like me, the answer is hardly ever. Why not make that your vacation tomorrow? If you’re feeling short on time and money, there’s no better way to take a break than to take one in your own city. No matter what the size, your city is bound to have a number of wonders just waiting to be explored. While you’re at it, research a couple of fabulous restaurants that you’ve never tried. Go to dinner at that amazing French restaurant that you read about in the paper. The next day, grab a cheese Danish and cafe latte at that bakery you’ve always fancied that usually has a line around the corner. One important factor in really getting that “local tourist experience” is to go the extra mile and check into a hotel /guesthouse. By moving into a house that is not yours it will help give you that feeling of adventure, excitement, and unfamiliarity.
4. Wine Tour
Believe it or not, you don’t have to live in California to live close to a local vineyard, microbrewery or distillery. What is more relaxing than spending a few days exploring the art of palates at a local wine tasting brewery? Take a tour, try the concoctions and sample suggested menu pairings. Call your girlfriends, look up the brewery for lodging accommodations, and even restaurants that feature their products.

5. Spa Retreat
Facial or massage anyone? I recently subscribed to an app that’s called Groupon. Groupon is a platform in which establishments from every different category offer amazing deals and coupons for sometimes higher than 50% off. One of their biggest advertisements are the amazing bargains on 3-6 day spa retreats hosted all over the world. We all know how good it feels to be pampered and simply relax.
So get out and treat yourself to a weekend of relaxation and adventure! Until next time, xoxo fashionistas!
