If you've been postponing a weekend getaway because you feel exhausted and unsure of where to start, worry not. We've got it all sorted in this handy guide, tailored to your every need! Take a moment to relax and consider the possibilities this journey holds for you.


Let's take a look at some top tips for planning the perfect weekend away:


Start by asking yourself what you are looking to achieve from your perfect weekend away. Are you looking to relax and recharge your batteries, or are you looking for some adventure and cultural experiences? Perhaps you are looking for a combination of all three. It’s important to take your interests and preferences into consideration when defining goals or else you’ll come back feeling unfulfilled and nobody wants that.

Desired Destination

Your chosen destination should be a location you have a genuine interest in visiting. Take the location, travel time, and budget into account when making this decision. You will save time if you do your research beforehand, so you know exactly what to expect while away instead of spending countless hours driving around aimlessly and getting irritated in the process.


Research local cuisine as that can be one of the most time-consuming tasks while away, especially with fussy travelers. Be sure to research attractions and events going on in the area for cultural experiences that will feed your mind and soul. A sense of direction will make you get the most out of your trip and ensure you meet your goals. 


Set a budget that won’t break the bank. There’s no point in having the best weekend away if you come back stressed out and reverse all that good energy. Be realistic when determining your budget and make sure you remember to budget for transport, accommodation, meals, activities, and extra knickknacks and gifts for yourself.

Plan Your Itinerary

Planning an itinerary is a good practice to get when planning trips as it provides much-needed structure to ensure things go off without a hitch…well as much as they can. Remember it doesn’t need to be a tight schedule, so make room for flexibility for natural attractions, relaxation, and adventurous activities. 

Accommodation and Transportation

Accommodation can make or break your trip. Make sure that your accommodation is aligned with your needs. When booking your accommodation consider the type of accommodation you prefer such as hotels, cozy cabins, inns, and Airbnbs. There are a myriad of options and something for everyone.


Comfort and convenience are key if you don’t drive and are relying on other forms of transportation. Choosing a form of transportation will come down to either distance or for those who don’t care about distance perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing scenery and views. If flying be sure to book tickets in advance for better prices. Your bank account will thank you in the long run!


Pack based on the activities you will participate in, and, of course, perhaps the most important factor is the destination. Pack in accordance with the weather, and remember that the weather forecast can change.


Therefore, it's always a good idea to be prepared with warm, comfortable clothing and shoes. Bringing comfortable bedding will provide peace of mind, so don't hesitate to pack your favorite blanket or pillow. Just be sure to pay special attention to avoid losing them.
