When you need to get away for a bit, why not pack a bag and head out to a locale that’s not too far away – but not too close either. Here are some of the best places to enjoy a weekend getaway when all you need to forget about everything is just a couple of days.
If music is your thing, Nashville will never disappoint on your weekend getaway. The Music City Walk of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center – it’s all here! And if you want to get a feel for what the music life is really like in this city, check out any one of the many, many clubs and bars dotted throughout Nashville. If you’re a nature lover, Centennial Park is also located here; and if it’s history you’re seeking, take a tour of The Hermitage – the home of President Andrew Jackson.

If you need to get back to being one with nature, spend your days hiking among rock formations, or just taking in beautiful scenery, Tucson is where you need to be. This city is one of the most relaxing places on earth, but among all those mountains and hilltops, you’ll also find a great city life and atmosphere too – and tons of attractions to take in while you’re there. The Rialto Theater, the Reid Park Zoo, and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum are just a few of them that you’ll find.

You could spend an entire weekend just touring the home of The King, Elvis Presley. And you could spend another just checking out all of his airplanes! Even the biggest Elvis fans will learn something new on this guided tour, and have the chance to see authentic memorabilia that belonged to the legend himself. Remember that Graceland is only open during regular business hours so be sure to pack lots of other things into your Memphis stay too, including visiting B.B. King’s club, and walking famous Beale Street.

Charleston, South Carolina
Take a step back in time when you visit Charleston, South Carolina. In this city, it’s all about the history – and the people are ranked as the friendliest in the entire country, too. Take a tour of a plantation, visit an oyster roast, or just visit one of the local restaurants for shrimp and grits the only way it should be eaten; these are all just a few of the local treats Charleston has to offer. Explore the cobblestone streets either on foot or, for a truly historic touch, by buggy and carriage!
