Perfect Weekend Getaway

I am sure that we all think of it during our work week.  Where can we run off to and spend a great weekend.  A place where can we go to get away from it all, the daily grind the hustle the demands.  Here are two of my top picks.

If you live in the Midwest like I do, there are some wonderful places that are a short car ride away.  There is Indianapolis, Indiana, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Dells or the small cities with wineries in Southern Michigan.  You could also do a staycation in your own backyard.  Living in Chicago, it is easy to book a rom in the downtown area or in one of the suburbs that has a lot of things going on.


The point is that there are endless options.  It is up to you to choose which option is best for you and your budget.  For ultimate relaxation, there is nothing like a trip to the winery, the tasting of the various varieties of the wine and then going to have a good meal is a great way to relax for the weekend.  If you go to the Michigan area, there are casinos and shopping nearby that can add to the weekend relaxation.  What is a weekend getaway without a little retail therapy?

If you want to go a little farther, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, has great bed and breakfasts and hotel resorts.  There are little shops, quaint restaurants, lake front activities and many other activities that can promote your relaxation. This town is great for horseback riding and they have excellent spas.


You can also do an at home staycation.  Put your favorite movies in your Netflix queue.  Grab your favorite snacks.  Relax on the couch with your favorite snack and blanket and binge watch all of the movies you love or those who you have been waiting to see.  Light some candles around the bathtub and take your latest leisurely reading with you.  Cook breakfast in bed for yourself and just enjoy being in your own space.

I believe that everyone needs not only mental health days but some time to recharge and recalibrate from the daily demands of adulating and real life.  These are some suggestions for those in the Midwest.  For those who live in other areas, do a little research on what areas provide the best weekend getaways for you. Take some time for yourself and do not forget to Relax, Release, Rest!!!

Stay Fabulous and Stay Blessed!
