Thanks to my friends at Coca-Cola for sponsoring this conversation with an “On the Road” prize pack full of summer road trip essentials for one lucky reader.
I think anyone can vouch for the fact that no matter how great of a life you may have, we all need a break sometimes! A break where we can just get away from anything life may throw at us and where we can simply sit back and relax without any distractions or problems. You may want to get away with a loved one, a sibling, friends, or even maybe your whole family needs to get away for the weekend! I love to spontaneously go visit new surroundings and just have a new view for the weekend. I think it personally helps me to stay sane and I try to do it as often as I can, now whether that’s just an hour away or 5 hours away, sometimes you just need to get away from home! Here are a few places that are perfect for weekend getaways and they can cater to any amount of people you have going! Hope some of these are close enough to where you live and you can find one to fit your needs!
Put-In-Bay, Ohio: Put-in-Bay is a small Island located in Ohio surrounded by the beautiful waters of Lake Erie. This place is great for a couples getaway or even a family getaway! It is filled with a ton great restaurants, you can go out on jet ski’s and boats, and there is even an Amusement Park! These are just a few of the many things to do at this lovely place and you are bound to have a blast here!
Wildwood, New Jersey: Wildwood is a great place to go if you’re looking to have a lot of fun! There are 3 Water Parks that are on The Beach, can we just stop there and say that would be a weekend filled with fun right there? Well nope, there’s more! You can ride roller coasters, play games, enjoy some mini golf, and even just hang out on the beach! Definitely a great place to spend the weekend!
Gatlinburg, Tennessee: Gatlinburg is perfect for anyone! You can take any random person there and they are bound to find something there that they’re going to love! It is filled with fun including an Amusement Park, museums, a ton of great food, you can take hikes in the mountains, and see some great outdoors among so much else! This is a great place to take a trip with anyone!
The Grand Canyon: Need I say more? I think everyone should have the experience of seeing the Grand Canyon! It is literally such an amazing view and you can take a really amazing hike throughout the Grand Canyon! Perfect for those who love the outdoors! It doesn’t get better than this!
Chicago, Illinois: Chicago is always such a fun time! There is a ton of stuff to do! Just to name a few: The Bean, Shopping on The Magnificent Mile, Lincoln Park Zoo, Beaches, as well as visiting The Willis Tower are some of my favorite things to do and that’s not even the half of what you can do in Chicago! There is plenty to have a jam packed, fun filled weekend!
Orlando, Florida: Orlando is obviously a really great family vacation spot! In Orlando there is Disney World, Universal Studios, as well as Animal Kingdom! All really great places to visit with a family! Although this may be a bit on the pricier side of weekend getaways, if you live close…it shouldn’t be too bad!
Atlanta, Georgia: I personally never thought about Atlanta being a good vacation spot since I already live here! But since it is actually home to the largest Aquarium in the World, which is so cool! It has more animals than any other aquarium and I am a big fan of aquariums myself! Atlanta is a great vacation spot to take the kids because there is so much history and so much to learn here. Among the aquarium, there is the Atlanta Zoo (which is one the oldest zoos in America), The World of Coca-Cola museum,The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and so much more! Great vacation spot for any age!
Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin: Wisconsin Dell’s is known as “The Waterpark Capital of the World” and that is because it is home to America’s largest Water park Resort. It is called the “Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort” and it harbors four indoor and four outdoor waterparks all on the property of this one resort! That just sounds like an amazing amount of fun and I don’t know if you could even cover 8 water parks in one weekend, but trust me..you should definitely try to fit it all in!
I hope that if you were looking for a weekend getaway and couldn’t think of a good place to, maybe some of these are close to where you live and you can pack up and head out sometime soon! Take a break from life, everyone can use a break sometimes!
