There are many places you can look when you want to find weekend getaway ideas. First, hop online. You will be stuck in front of your computer for hours on end deciding where you want to go. There are so many wonderful places, near and far, that make great weekend getaways. You don't want to travel too far, however, if you only have the weekend. A short drive or plane trip is all you'll need.

Find a place to stay where you can relax instantly. Taking the entire weekend just to unwind and finally beginning to enjoy yourself on Sunday night is no way to do a getaway. For more weekend getaway ideas, take some time at your local bookstore. The travel section is always full of ideas. If you are traveling with a special someone, you can find books dedicated to romantic getaways. In addition, you will find many books for specific states with titles like, "Weekend Getaways in South Carolina." This will give you great ideas.

Great Weekend Getaway Ideas

Don't pack too much and don't plan too much. You only have the weekend to unwind and revive, so you don't want to feel pressured to fit everything in. Just know where you are going and where you are staying. I suggest a bed and breakfast. Many times the staff members at these places are experts in helping with weekend getaway ideas. They are used to weekend travelers, and so have created the perfect environment for such a trip.

Most people go on weekend trips because they need to get away and just breathe. Therefore, stay away from the popular places where you cannot get away from hustle and bustle. Try the beach or the mountains. Both are very relaxing. You begin to slow down a little as you let the flow of nature take over. You will wake up on Monday feeling revived and invigorated.
