What to Do Over a Long Weekend

It’s always great to stretch out the weekend for an extra day or two, whether you’ve got the PTO or it’s a holiday. It can provide a much-needed breather amidst busy schedules, and is the perfect opportunity to go out, travel, get things done, and relax. Whether you want to take a deep dive into a book you’ve really been wanting to read or go on your next getaway adventure, we’ve got a few ideas for inspiration to get the wheels turning.

Plan a Weekend Getaway

Sometimes the best way to recharge and restore your energy is with a fantastic long weekend trip. These weekend trip ideas will still help you relax, unwind, and get away from it all without requiring too much from you — did we mention the weather is great, too?

Sedona, Arizona

Going to Sedona is the definition of a relaxing weekend getaway. A new-age town amid ancient sandstone formations, this location is known for its energy vortex and luxury resorts. Not to mention the local wineries and native shops where you can eat, drink, and zen. 

Austin, Texas

A weekend is all you need to see the very best of Texas’ coolest city. Between the food, entertainment, and shopping, you’ll have to make a list of your musts before going to plan it out. Don’t forget to include a dip in the Barton Springs Pool as part of your trip to Austin.

Savannah, Georgia

If you want to indulge, planning a trip to Savannah is the right choice. With Southern comfort foods and the art scene, there are plenty of things to do no matter what your interests are.

Tackle a Project

A long weekend is a perfect opportunity to tackle the projects that continuously fall to the wayside and still have a day to relax. This could be painting or redecorating a room, cleaning out the garage, working on the car, or organizing your closet using the Mari Kondo way.

Enjoy a Staycation

Adventures are a lot of fun, but they can also require a lot of work to plan. Sometimes, it can lead to the opposite feelings of relaxation. Instead of tackling a big trip, try activities that are close to where you live. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Go camping
  • Stay at a local hotel/resort
  • Visit a national/state/local park
  • Enjoy a local museum or gallery
  • Rent an Airbnb
  • Take a food tour
  • Visit the zoo
  • Go to a local winery

Plan Your Next Vacation

If you’re not able to take a spontaneous vacation or staycation, planning a future vacation can still boost your wellbeing as you dream about what’s to come. Take a couple of hours over the long weekend to get yourself prepared and excited for the next big trip you’d take. Search for locations, places to stay, how much it will cost, and what you might need to save. Don’t forget to download some handy apps for planning a trip that could save you money when the time comes.
