A weekend getaway can be anything from a road-trip to the next town over or a plane ride to the big apple. It all depends on how you fill out the formula below. I'm going to break down exactly how I plan a mini-vacay away.
How much do you have to spend on this getaway?
Main things to keep in mind:
3. Book the trip
Once you know where you want to go and how much you have to spend, it's time to book flights, hotels/airbnbs, and pack up the car and get on your way. I always do so in this order: hotel/airbnb, flight, activities that require booking before hand, any reservations at potentially busy restaurants.
After that's out of the way, I'll start drafting up an itinerary and some mood-board inspiration.
I'll surf through Pinterest, WeHeartIt or Instagram for ideas of photos, outfits, and things to bring along so there isn't anything I forget.
Alright, now you're getting away.... but how do you make the most of your short time there?
I like to have a ~lose~ itinerary so I don't waste time. There's a fine balance between having a schedule and filling it up too much, so this is the sweet spot for weekend getaways I find works best for me.
