Just because you may not be able to carve out a week to escape does not mean you cannot find the perfect trip to relax and reenergize your body and mind! Click through to uncover the best locations for your perfect weekend getaway.
Want to spend the weekend in the perfect beach town? Welcome to Nantucket. This charming town on an island off of Cape Cod, Massachusetts can be a peaceful escape or a place to let loose and have fun!
Start your day at the beach! If you’re looking for a fun atmosphere and great surf, visit Cisco Beach. Cisco has soft sands, strong waves, and a lifeguard on duty! If you’re looking for a beach that’s a little quieter, try Great Point. This remote spot on the end of the island is equally peaceful and beautiful. Since you’re only going for a weekend, you can’t just eat at just any restaurant! The Galley is a must if you are visiting Nantucket. Get seated right on the sand and enjoy the delicious food and spectacular views. Looking to let out some steam and have a little fun? Cisco brewery is the perfect spot for a laid-back day drink with friends. Its a great spot with friends, but the great atmosphere attracts all walks of life! For an epic night, bring your friends to bar and live music venue, the Chicken Box. Check online to see who’s performing during your visit! Oh and while you are there say hello to our friend Jess at Nine Fair….
The ultimate getaway for music lovers and adventure seekers! Nashville is one of the fastest growing cities in America, and it’s easy to see why. Whenever and wherever you go, you are sure to find amazing talent. Visit some of the most popular music venues, like the Grand Ole Opry, or simply bar hop through Broadway and listen to the free music the locals have to offer.
Trying to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city? Spend a day exploring 12th Avenue. There are so many fun shops and food places to explore, but we recommend stopping into the Frothy Monkey for an iced coffee and then visiting Reece Witherspoon’s famous clothing shop, Draper James!
If you’re really trying to avoid human interaction all together on your weekend getaway, explore the parks and hiking trails Nashville has to offer. A personal favorite is Percy Warner! Find your escape by exploring hiking and biking trails or by simply laying out on the open fields.
Westerners, we didn’t forget about you! Napa Valley may just be one of the most beautiful destinations…ever. Whether you’re staying in a charming bed and breakfast or high-scale hotel, your trip will feel like luxury.
Want to explore California Wine country? Why not do it 3,000 feet in the air? Balloons Above the Valley will take you on an epic adventure hot air balloon adventure above breathtaking landscapes!
If heights aren’t really your thing, and you’re just trying to relax, release any weekday stress by booking an appointment at one of Napa Valley’s spas. Pamper yourself at Calistoga Spa, where you can choose from a number of incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating treatments.
Even with all the activities it has to offer, we all know the best part of Napa Valley is the wine…duh.
To get a taste for the best wines, book a trip on the infamous Napa Wine Train. This three-hour train ride seats you in vintage rail cars and guarantees the ultimate wine-tasting experience!
Welcome to a big city with southern charm and endless options. For those trying to get out and explore, head over to the Beltline. The 22 miles of unused railroad tracks are perfect for bike riding, jogging, and site seeing. The path is also filled with work from local artists and top-notch restaurants!
Hungry? Food is everywhere, but the Three Sheets might be a place you have to stop at. Eat their miracle fruit to experience “flavor tripping,” where the way you perceive sour flavors is totally rewired! Sour changes to sweet, turning lemons, goat cheese, and even Guinness beer into completely different tasting foods! It’s a weird pitstop that you have to make when visiting Atlanta.
You only have a weekend, so might as well make it epic! For the ultimate night out, you have to take your friends to Havana Club. Its classy and cool ambiance guarantees a fun and unforgettable night (…although the details might be fuzzy….).
Calling all nature lovers! Vermont might be known for its famous slopes, however there is plenty of beauty to be found in the warmer months!
Spend your weekend discovering fresh local food fare, wandering the landscape, meeting new artists, listening to local music and hiking Mount Mansfield.
