Weekend Getaways for a Break From Routine

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - Sometimes you need a break from the routine, but there's not enough time for a proper vacation. Our answer? Weekend getaways.

For a winter weekend getaway, you can embrace the benefits of winter snow or escape the cold for a warm and sunny beach. Vail, Colorado is a top weekend destination for those who enjoy winter sports, while Key West, Florida offers the best in sunny relaxation.

Let it Snow!

Vail in winter: just the idea makes winter sports enthusiasts' hearts beat faster. From its famous powder to warm, inviting accommodations, Vail is the perfect spot for a quick fix of world-class skiing or snowboarding. Most weekend visitors get to the resort by flying into the local airport, then making the 30-minute drive up the mountain via rental car, taxi, or van service.
