Weekend Getaway Ideas

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2014) - The need to rejuvenate is not always in sync with available vacation time. Weekend getaways offer a much-needed break to those who cannot spare more than a couple of days. No matter what the season, top weekend destinations await the weary, and Marriott's new weekend getaways infographic offers terrific ideas that are perfect for a weekend vacation.

Spring is a great time to head to New Orleans, Louisiana for a weekend vacation. The exuberant crowds of Mardi Gras have passed, and the steamy summer is weeks away. Visitors can catch a jazz performance, sample the cuisine and visit the museums without dodging endless tourists.

Summer weekend getaways shouldn't be limited to beach destinations. Rapid City, South Dakota and Rexburg, Idaho lure visitors interested in visiting the great outdoors. Mount Rushmore and the majestic Black Hills are the main attraction in South Dakota, while the otherworldly Craters of the Moon National Monument is near Rexburg. 

Napa Valley, California is a classic autumn destination with more to offer than enjoying the fruits of the plentiful wineries. Relaxing activities include watching hot air balloons peacefully float over the rolling hills and gallery-hopping to catch up-and-coming artists.

For those who favor winter's charm, skiers and snowboarders needing a break choose Vail, Colorado. Key West, Florida, on the other hand, lures those who need a break from winter itself.

Weekend getaways offer relaxation throughout the year. For those who need a break on short notice, great deals are often available.
