Advantages of a Weekend-Getaway

By: Jolana Klobouk

It Costs Less

No doubt about it, paying for a hotel and meals for 3 nights instead of 7 will set you back less out of the pocket book.

It Takes Less Planning Time

Many mini vacations are available as last minute deals, saving you time and money. All you need to do is pick the destination and pack your bags!

Recharge Time

What are you planning to do this weekend? Mow the lawn? Do the Laundry? Get some paperwork done? Getting away from the routine and daily demands, even for 2 or 3 days will help recharge the batteries. When you stay around the house, you are reminded of what needs to be done and it adds to the stress.

New Discoveries

Often you may not consider visiting a particular area or city for a long stretch but a few days does the trick. There are many places you can go and see where three days is enough. Instead of two week long vacations, you could pack in 4 weekends and visit 4 different destinations!

It Can Be As Exotic or Low Key As You want

Depending on your travel time, Mexico, Canada and US destinations are all do-able for North Americans for shorter jaunts. Many cruise lines now also offer 3-day packages.

It’s a Great Way to Celebrate

Do you have a special occasion coming up? An anniversary, birthday or another special day. Is there a long weekend on the horizon? What a great way to make it really special.

Whether you are going to travel with the family or as a couple for a romantic weekendScience Articles, the sky is the limit. You will come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and wondering when you can go again!
