How to Plan Your Weekend Getaway

With the stresses of everyday life, it’s always nice to take a break now and then and get away for the weekend. Whether you want to relax by yourself or enjoy quality time with friends and family, planning a weekend getaway is a great way to unwind and recharge. According to a recent OnePoll survey, 37% of respondents suggested going on a getaway at least once a year to avoid feeling burnt out. Here are some tips for how to plan your perfect getaway.

Choose a Destination

The first step is deciding where you want to go. Think about what you’re in the mood for – biking, history, a city full of culture? Do some research online to find a place that fits what you’re looking for. You could go somewhere nearby for a quick drive or be a bit more adventurous and fly somewhere new. When looking at destinations, also consider budget and how long of a drive or flight it will be.

Make Accommodations

Once you’ve selected a destination, it’s time to book your accommodations. For a more relaxing getaway, you may want to splurge out a bit and stay at a nice hotel. Look for hotels that offer a lot to and even restaurants to visit! Be sure to read reviews to find clean, comfortable places to lay your head after a busy day of activities or exploring.

Plan Activities

Part of the fun of a getaway is enjoying new experiences. Scan event calendars, activity websites, and tour brochures to find attractions and events happening during your trip dates. Popular options include visiting museums, hiking trails, beaches, wineries or breweries, live music, festivals, sightseeing tours, and more. Try to build an itinerary with a good mix of planned activities along with some free time to relax or be spontaneous.

With a little planning, you’ll be all set to enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend getaway. Spending a couple of days exploring a new place, enjoying activities you don’t usually have time for, and disconnecting from daily stresses will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the real world again on Sunday night.
