Four Fun Weekend Getaway Ideas

Sleep in till late

The idea of sleeping in might not seem as adventurous or thrill seeking as travelling to a different part of the world or going bungee jumping but for those of you who lead a very busy lifestyle and constantly worry about closing deals and making important calls, a day that allows you to stay bundled up on your couch while binge watching a new tv show will sound like an absolute treat. 

Go camping outdoors

Be warned, this tip is not for those of you who are scared of bugs, insects, the dark or anything of that sort because all the mentioned factors are a given that comes along with the act of camping. However, for those who are adventurous and love the outdoors, camping will definitely be your cup of tea. Camping would allow you to try out many different activities such as going snapper fishing or starting your own fire. 

Embrace your creativity 

If doing adventurous activities that are so in line with the outdoors such as Port Phillip Bay fishing charters, bungee jumping or camping does not interest you, you should definitely try your hand at embracing your creativity during this time of leisure. Embracing your creativity could mean anything from starting to write that book you’ve been dreaming of writing, working on a new painting or reading a good book. 

Explore a city

When you hear these words, a thousand excuses might pop into your head related to expenses for air travel, lodging and all sorts of things but exploring a new city does not always mean that you have to fly overseas or to a popular travel destination. Exploring a city can simply start with your neighboring city so fill your gas tank to the brim and go on down to your neighboring city and you will have a few pleasant surprises waiting to greet you in the forms of new foods, friends and fun activities. 

Visit local restaurants 

Regardless of whether it’s a new or old establishment, if there is any place that you have been wanting to visit, call up a friend, put on your favorite dress and split a bottle of wine over some delicious food. Good food is a universal language that everyone speaks and understands so go out into town with some good company and enjoy exploring some of the eateries. 

Treat yourself and relax 

After all the long and hard hours of work you endure, it is very important to take some time off to kick back and treat yourself to something that you have been wanting for long whether it is an expensive dress or a tub of Ben and jerry’s ice cream.
