5 Weekend Getaway Ideas

family-campingWhy book a trip to a touristy beach resort this summer when these off the beaten path weekend escapes are more affordable and let you discover less known destinations.

Follow these five getaway ideas for the perfect weekend escape.

Rent a House

A hotel is relaxing, but why not rent a house instead.  Websites like AIRBNB, VRBO, and Home Away make it safe and easy to find a house to meet your needs.  Houses are typically cheaper than hotels, accommodate larger groups, and let you explore an area as a resident and not a tourist.

Go Camping

A weekend in the woods is the perfect solution for your hectic daily life.  Plus, it is cheaper than a hotel!  Pitch a tent, rent a camper or a cabin for the perfect family getaway.

Take a Cruise

Many area cruise lines offer two or three day cruises to local harbors or even no where.  These affordable vacations are an ideal way to escape the daily grind.

Get Lucky

Got your attention on that one, didn’t we?  Spend a night or two at one of Southern California’s casinos and spas. And, well maybe you will “get lucky”.

Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

Explore a museum, stay at a BnB, rent a kayak, or take a tour in Long Beach.  There really is so much to discover just minutes from your apartment in Long Beach.
