Life is great. You know what makes it even better? A weekend getaway. Or road trips where you can get away for any two days of the week. There’s no rule that says you have to go from a Friday-Sunday to have fun.
I love the concept of running away for a couple of days to a place that a.) I’ve never been to, or b.) a place that I’ve always wanted to spend a little more time at.
Perhaps the best thing about road trips is that you call the shots. You decide who you are going with, if you are traveling by car, train, or plane, how cheap (or extravagant!) you’ll be, and how many activities you’ll participate in.
The concept of a weekend road trip is simple: to get a quick break and rejuvenate yourself so that you can tackle anything the next week brings.
While I believe that weekend road trips shouldn’t take up too much time planning, there are a few things that you should have figured out ahead of time, like, you know, sleeping accommodations to say the very least. You want to plan just enough so that you’re not left stressed out last-minute but not so much that you don’t have the opportunity to explore, because sometimes when things are spontaneous the best memories are made.
