Weekend Getaways

Weekend Getaways

You don't want logistics (or time) to get in the way of your travel dreams. That's why we created the weekend getaway category. Here, we provide detailed itineraries and guides that will inspire you to get out and go. We'll show you where to go and what to do to make the most of your coveted two or three days off per week😉.

We aren't 'hostel kids' who slow travel on the cheap, trying to make their gap year savings last. We take every trip with vigor, trying to experience a destination fully. Even if we're on an extended campaign, we approach it like a series of weekend getaways. That is how we can craft these quick guides and itineraries for you.
