3 Day Getaways
If you have never done so, taking a 3-Day Weekend Getaway is almost like taking a mini-vacation. It
is just enough time to feel as if you have been gone a week.
It needn't take a special occasion to get away. However, should you wish to make it a romantic getaway, your choice of
destinations may be somewhat different than if you just wanted a break.
What if just you girls want to get away? See Getaways for 'Girls Only'.

How About a Getaway by Motorcycle?
Whether it is by yourself, with a passenger, or with another cyclist, it affords a much different sense of
freedom than when doing the same trip in a car. Is it the challenge of driving 2-wheels or perhaps the beauty and
remoteness of two-lane roads that makes the difference? How do you prepare for this unique weekend getaway? See
