It’s a fabulous three-day weekend from work and it’s time to clock out, but where do you go? Honestly, you really can go just about anywhere, but if you want to have some time to actually lounge on the beach or do some sightseeing, here are some great three-day weekend ideas:
From city to the country: If you’ve been toiling all week in the hustle and bustle of New York City’s working world and you’re ready for some backwoods country, get away to the Adirondacks or any of the national parks close to you. Adirondack Park, a 6 million—acre park is larger than several National Parks combined, but it’s not a national park. There’s no cost to enter and you don’t have to worry about leaving at sunset. Go camping, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding and swimming. If you’re traveling in early September, check out the Adirondack Canoe Classic, known as the 90-Miler, a grueling three-day self-powered boat raced from Old Forge to Saranac Lake or the 10-day Saranac Lake Winter Carnival, held annually in February.
It’s Just Beachy: Would you prefer to be lounging on the beach instead of camping in the forest? Plan a weekend getaway to Florida where you can sink your toes into the white sand, play 18 holes on the many golf courses or enjoy the sights and sounds of Miami. Or how about going 50 miles further for a weekend jaunt to the Bahamas? Visit Nassau, the island capital, enjoy some scuba diving, diving and snorkeling.
Get Your R&R at a B&B: Forget planes and trains and, instead, hop into your car and head to a local romantic bed and breakfast. Depending on your destination, you can get away to the country, a city, near the woods or sleep in a lighthouse.
Say Oui Oui to Paris! It’s very romantic to pull out all the stops and take off for a weekend in Paris. With some planning and flexibility, it can be done. Take your iconic picture in front of the Eiffel Tower, enjoy the Louvre, and take a peek into Notre Dame de Paris. Enjoy a baguette, some Parisian chocolate, and, of course, sample some fromage (cheese). It’s a jam-packed exhilarating weekend of fun. When you head back to work, you can let your co-workers know that you spent the weekend in France (they probably won’t believe you so show them the photos!).
