There are few things I love more than weekend trips. Sure, there are times that a remote island getaway for many days at a time is just what the doctor ordered, but, sometimes, a girl just wants to relax without dipping into her savings. Weekend trips are a great way to relax and rejuvenate without spending oodles and traveling far. Most weekend trips are just a few hours drive away, some are even in your own back yard!
1. The Beach
Most of us live a few hours away from a beach somewhere. Whether it be a Hawaiian escape or a nice lakeside area, a beach getaway can be one of the best weekend trips ever for relaxing. Spending a day at the beach and a night in a relaxed beach cottage or cabin is a wonderful way to unplug from the modern world and work on finishing that book you have been reading for the past three months. If adventure is more your style, try surfing, skim boarding, or kayaking on your beach getaway!
