For many Americans, a getaway at this point in the year can sound just about perfect.
But where would you go, especially at the last minute?
Taking a quick trip is a wonderful way to ease the mental burdens of the cooler months. And odds are there are lots of options a short drive away that can help you breathe calmly again.
From mountain getaways to last-minute beach visits, hitting the “Escape” button can sometimes be a lifesaver.
So let’s go over some great ways to get away from it all without letting it all get away from you:
- Check last-minute deals - Most travel sites have last-minute deals for a range of locations. Check around and see if you can take a quick trip without breaking the bank.
- Day tripping - Pull up Google maps for where you live, and try zooming out. Chances are some amazing places are within a short distance and could make for a spectacular trip.
- Cabin fever - Use your favorite short-term rental app and book a cabin to get away. Being out in nature in front of a roaring fire could be just what the doctor ordered.
It’s easier than you think to get out there and relax. Sometimes a change of scenery is exactly what you need to make it through the rest of the winter.
