With the hustle and bustle of our day to day lives, planning a vacation can seem like some far off fantasy. That’s why I’m a huge fan of the “weekend getaway”! It’s not so long that you have to cash in tons of vacation days and spend big bucks… but it’s plenty of time to help you come back recharged and refreshed.
Here are some tips to get you started!
1. Make a plan
It may be a short and sweet trip, but doing just a little prep work will pay off big time. Decide on a location, then make dinner reservations or book a spa treatment in town. Anything you can plan in advance will save you stress and precious vacation time once you reach your destination.
2. Bring a travel buddy
A solo trip definitely has its benefits, but a weekend getaway is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your partner or a few close friends, especially if you are “always” tied up during the week. Traveling with someone you care about can make for more lasting memories!
3. Choose a destination with everything you’ll need in one place
Hilton Garden Inn is a perfect choice for this. It’s all about maximizing your time! With a host of amenities and resources, Hilton Garden Inn empowers its guests to make good choices and live by five bright ideas: sleep well; work smart; eat well; stay fit and treat yourself.

In fact, you can start the weekend right, by unwinding with a glass of wine or a cocktail in the Pavilion Lounge as you curl up beside a crackling fireplace.

4. Extend your stay!
