Here’s How to Plan the Perfect Weekend Getaway

You and your friends have decided it's time for a weekend away together, but where do you start with the planning? We've got you. Check out our tips for planning the perfect weekender.

Step 1: Create Your Itinerary

  • Decide where you want to go. Don’t forget to check the weather to make sure it won't interfere with your plans! (Dark Sky is a great place to check)
  • Come up with a budget–if you need help with this, check out our guide to making a travel budget. Nail down the max amount of money you want to spend, and book based on that.

Step 2: Make A Plan

  • Start a group chat to involve everyone in the planning process.
  • Make an activity list, and let everyone add ideas.
  • Star the activities you're prioritizing, in case you don’t have time for everything.
  • Search online discounts to help stay within budget.

Step 3: Pack Accordingly

  • Create a packing list. Things to consider: what kind of activities you’ll be doing, and if you’ll need multiple outfit changes in a day.
  • Use a Toiletry Bag to keep all your day-to-day essentials in one place.

Step 4: Don’t Overplan—Have FUN!

  • Keep your itinerary loose enough for “in the moment” activities.
  • Having too strict of a schedule can cause unnecessary stress and doesn't allow you to be spontaneous.

Step 5: Ease Back into the Work Week

  • Come Monday, don’t try to tackle all your work all at once—take time to catch up.
  • Create a to-do list and prioritize your action items.
  • Embrace your post-vacation blues. Don’t feel sad that your vacation is over—get inspired to book the next one!
