To help you narrow down your search here’s a look at some of the most popular and interesting weekend adventure opportunities that cover everything from relaxation to adventure.
POPULAR WEEKEND ADVENTURE DESTINATIONS
If relaxation and rejuvenation are what you are looking for on your weekend adventure, then look no further than the spa. Many high-end spas team up with local hotel chains to offer a great weekend retreat. Your spa weekend adventure contains hot oil massages, seaweed wraps, relaxing hot tubs, breakfast in bed, and meditation or yoga sessions. You’ll have everything you need to pamper yourself and let the stress melt away.
Quick Trip to Vegas or Atlantic City
Imagine a destination where everything you could ever want to do is all compacted into one location. That is exactly what Vegas and Atlantic City offer. You can score great deals for a weekend flight to Vegas or Atlantic City, which makes both of these destinations perfect weekend adventures, no matter where you live.
If you’re looking for adventure and excitement, you’ll find rock climbing, hiking and horseback riding, as well as hundreds of casino games. For those who desire a more laid back approach to their weekend adventure, you’ll find Broadway musicals, magic acts, local spas, and hundreds of tourist attractions that let you enjoy the slower side of life.
A Convention that Caters to Your Interests and Hobbies
Say the word convention and people automatically assume you’re talking about a sci-fi/fantasy convention, but over the years conventions have taken on a whole new meaning. Conventions are no longer just for the sci-fi/fantasy crowd and can cover any interest or hobby you may have. Every year there are conventions for food junkies, chocolate lovers, computer geeks, pinball nuts, antique collectors, book lovers, and more.
Conventions are a great weekend adventure because you’re exploring new cities, meeting new friends and learning more about your favorite hobby or interest. Just hop on a plane or drive your car to the nearest convention and you’ll have a weekend packed with memories that will last you a lifetime.
State or National Parks
State and national parks are grossly underestimated for their weekend retreat potential. Not only do these very scenic locations provide you with the chance to experience nature in all its glory but they give you the chance to indulge in a number of activities that let you live a little.
Camping is the most popular activity when visiting a state or national park but there are hundreds of other options. You can go hiking, bike riding, skiing, or horseback riding depending upon what park you are visiting.
If you aren’t the outdoors type, you can find a state or national park that allows you to surround yourself with the beautiful landscaping and not have to go outdoors. For non-outdoor activities, you can visit a bed and breakfast or a spa and resort located deep in the heart of the national park.
How to Afford that Weekend Adventure Getaway
If you’re like most people, the reason you don’t take advantage of these great weekend getaways is because you just can’t afford them. You have bills to pay, food and clothing to purchase, and other expenses that prevent you from being able to afford these lovely relaxing weekend getaways.
Before you give up hope and head back to your stress-filled life and continue to work endlessly with no breaks, there are some ways you can make a little extra cash and take that weekend adventure. Some ways to get extra cash include:
- Selling items on eBay
- Creating a small business selling homemade crafts or baked goods.
- Applying for payday loans or online personal loans.
- Pawning unused items.
- Getting paid to take advantage of your hobbies like fixing computers or cutting the lawn.
