5 Creative Weekend Getaway Ideas
Why book a flight to a touristy beach resort when you can try one of these off-the-beaten-path weekend escapes?
Rent a House
It has all the comforts of home but provides the excitement of something new. Renting a house for the weekend gives you plenty
of freedom—cook, watch movies, take naps on the couch, play board games…the possibilities are endless. Most rentals are available
on a nightly basis and come fully stocked with kitchen equipment, bedding, towels, and more—it’s all up to the individual
owners, so make sure you check what’s included before booking. House rentals are also a great option if you’re planning on
getting away with a group; you’ll have plenty of time and space to bond, and many larger rentals are cheaper than booking
several individual hotel rooms.
