Vacations are fun, I think we can all agree. Sometimes they don’t always go according to our plan, but sometimes that makes them better.
The last couple of years I’ve gone on a week-long vacation to Aruba at the beginning of December. It’s a lovely island and you can do as much or as little as you want – there are plenty of things to do. And everyone is super friendly! (I definitely recommend you go at least once!)
However, with a wedding coming up next year, I’m trying to be more financially conscious/responsible and don’t want to spend too much on a vacation this year. I obviously deserve the time off and want to (and need to, for my sanity!).
So I’ve thought about doing long weekends instead of a full week. Though I’m not opposed to closer, cheaper vacations. Does anyone have any ideas for long weekend vacations (more specifically on the east coast of the US)?
Just a little while ago I saw a commercial for Hershey, PA and I’ve never been, so I thought that might be a good one to do. (I may or may not have seen that commercial on the Disney Channel while watching Monsters, Inc. by myself…) And I’d love to do a weekend in Washington, D.C. (another place I’ve never been) and definitely NYC (and now that I’m into sewing, I want to go to Mood!). But if anyone has any out-of-the-box suggestions, I’d love to hear them, so put them in the comments!
