For long weekends filled with equal parts adventure and relaxation, these are the perfect destinations. Whether you’re looking for something outdoorsy or a luxury spa weekend, we have your perfect trip planned from beginning to end.
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
If you’re looking for a sun-kissed tan and white sand beaches, look no further. Squeeze in 18 holes on waterfront courses at The Sea Pines Resort. Take a scenic bike ride or go wine tasting at the Carolina Tasting Room. Hilton Head offers a perfect balance of rejuvenation, activity, and beachfront beauty.
For a hefty dose of R&R, this pampering weekend fits the bill. Mii Amo, a luxurious red rock country resort is tucked away within the towering rock formations of Boynton Canyon. Activities include hiking, biking, yoga, and don’t forget to indulge in the prickly pear butter wrap at the spa.
Cold Spring, NY
Upstate New York is rich with scenic views, farm-to-table restaurants, and local wineries. Drive up to Cold Spring for a gorgeous weekend outdoors before summer leaves for good. Get your heart rate up with a hike up Breakneck Ridge and check sites like Bannerman Castle and Stonecrop Gardens off the bucket list. Finish the weekend with a romantic wine tasting at Palaia Vineyards.
An hour-and-a-half from the closest airport, Twin Farms will exceed every expectation you have for a romantic, secluded weekend away. Spend your days fly fishing on Copper Pond or exploring the stunning property on bicycles. Enjoy all-inclusive meals and drinks from the on-site gourmet restaurant and luxurious spa treatments.
Mackinac Island, Michigan
This stunning island in the middle of Lake Huron harkens back to another era. Take horse-drawn “taxis” around the city or opt for a bicycle to explore the cute downtown. Dine on fresh seafood at Millie’s on Main and don’t leave without picking up some legendary fudge for the drive home from local favorite Murdick’s.
Carmel Beach, California
Although all of the west coast beaches are stunning, there’s something unique about Carmel. With local resorts and spas, you can enjoy aromatherapy massages after early mornings on the surf. Don’t get tied to land: enjoy Carmel Beach by sea with a kayak tour guide.
And if you can’t get away, enjoy a weekend in. Either way, it’s a win, because we’ve got your staycation covered. Tag us in your weekend adventures!
