Sometimes life calls for a weekend getaway to de-stress, see something new, and have a bit of fun. However, choosing which destination to travel to can be hard when you are only going to have a few days to stay there. The following is a list of a few perfect spots for a weekend trip you will love. New York City You can get to New York City by train, plane or automobile, so weekend getaways are a breeze. In addition, ample tourist attractions indoors ( including museums and Broadway shows) and outdoors (like Central Park and the High Line) make unpredictable weather a non-issue. History enthusiasts can head to Ellis Island by way of ferry to see the first stop of many immigrants in days past or climb to the top of the famous Statue of Liberty. San Francisco There is much to love about San Francisco: the iconic cable cars you can ride through downtown streets, the colorful hilly neighborhoods, the dazzling Golden Gate Bridge, and of course the lovely weather. Baseball has never been as picturesque as in San Francisco; go to a game at AT&T Park and check out the gorgeous views of the stunning San Francisco Bay. Washington, D.C. The lovely U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. has many major attractions that are very easy to visit, as many are free of charge and located within walking distance of each other: the imposing Lincoln Memorial, the awe-inspiring Washington Monument, and many more. When you are visiting, don't miss out on the trendy weekend brunch scene â€“ just don't forget to make reservations in advance. New Orleans Everyone can find something to love about New Orleans, with its huge range of things to do and see. If you are from a cold-weather place and just for more passport want to enjoy some fresh air, head over to City Park for some outdoor activities; history lovers can check out The National WWII Museum. Anyone spending time in New Orleans has to set aside some time to walk around the iconic French Quarter (preferably in the evening) and save some appetite for the tasty traditional beignets. Nashville, NC If you want a weekend of refreshing mountain air and sunshine followed by delicious artisanal hand-crafted beer from a local brewery, Nashville, NC is the perfect weekend getaway.
