If you’re in need of some inspiration, here are six long weekends you should try in 2019:
DIGITAL DETOX: Put down your smart phone and unplug from modern technology in a weekend camping excursion. Whether you set up tent in Yosemite National park, Nebraska’s Lake McConaughey, or Yogi Bear’s family friendly Jellystone Park in Hagerstown, Massachusetts, a camping weekend will allow you to unplug completely and “get away from it all.”
WINE TOUR: Put your sommelier skills to the test by visiting one of the many top wine regions across the U.S., such as California’s world-famous Napa Valley. Part of the San Francisco Bay Area, Napa Valley is a wine-soaked paradise home to 400 wineries, wine classes, and food-and-wine festivals.
CHEAT WEEKEND: The perfect weekend for “the foodie,” cheat weekends are all about indulging in a city’s local cuisine. Will you travel to San Francisco’s Mission District for fresh seafood and authentic Mexican food, hunt for the best Philly Cheesesteak in Philadelphia, or attend Burlington, Wisconsin’s annual Chocolate Fest held over Memorial Day Weekend, celebrating chocolate makers and eaters alike?
KIDS WEEKEND: Bring the kids along one holiday weekend for a family-fun adventure at one of our nation’s best amusement parks. Whether it’s a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Illinois’s Santa’s Village, or the USA’s largest water park, Water Country USA in Williamsburg, VA, these amusement parks are fun for kids and kids at heart.
SPA WEEKEND: Spend a romantic long weekend with your significant other in one of the country’s top relaxing spas. Try the Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, who's "Passport to Romance" program includes award winning spa treatments, a hot-air balloon ride and gourmet brunch in the Sonoran desert, and a romantic flower-filled bubble bath.
ADVENTURE WEEKEND: An adrenaline-filled weekend for all those thrill-seekers. Have you ever zip-lined 1,300 ft in the air at 65 miles per hour in Icy Strait Point, Alaska, cliff-jumped in Crater Lake, Oregon, or rode the USA’s highest roller coaster at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio? Choose an adrenaline-filled activity to center your weekend around and soak in the local culture while you’re in town.
