Are you ready to escape with your BFFs for a weekend away? Whether it’s been on your bucket list for months or years, there’s no time like to present to reconnect with your buddies, escape your routine and explore a new area. Follow these suggestions from the travel experts to ensure your trip is one of adventure and fun memories for all!
First steps first. Select your dates and determine your budget. You’re now ready to start exploring. Don’t limit yourself to familiar place – try something new with your friends. It’s always fun to select a destination that might not be on your family’s bucket list. Research options for train travel. Driving can be fraught with traffic and the airlines have become increasingly unpredictable. One of the benefits of travelling by train is the train stations are generally located in the city centers. Nothing like arriving in the middle of all the action at your destination!
An increasingly popular option for accommodations is private home and apartment rentals directly from owners. There are many websites that profile properties and provide very specific details. Private home rentals provide many upsides over hotel rooms. There’s often plenty of space to spread out and enjoy long breakfasts in privacy. Check out the details on the website as far as room count, size, bedroom configurations and location. Never send a deposit until you have connected directly with the owner either via email or phone. Be sure to read the property reviews. Vacationers tend to be more forthright than owners and you don’t want any surprise to spoil your special girls’ weekend! Confirm the check in policy. This often involves receiving an entry code via text at your designated check-in time.
Finally, start packing! Check the weather at your destination to make sure you’re prepared for thunderstorms or sunshine. Spend some time doing online research to uncover the fun activities available at your chosen destination. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and invest in a pair of stylish and comfortable walking shoes at Johnston Murphy. Your feet will thank you! Step out of your comfort zone and try new adventures, taste new foods and slip into an art museum. You never know until you try. Have a grand time!
