Quirky Ideas for a Creative Weekend

When you finally get to take off time from work for a long-overdue weekend getaway, you’ll want to savor every last minute of it. But there are so many factors to consider, mainly destination and affordability.

Sure, you can opt for the tried-and-true like a beach resort or ski trip in the mountains—but why book a flight to a touristy hotspot when you can try one of these off-the-beaten path weekend getaways? It’s a great opportunity to try something new for next weekend escape—plus, your friends and family might be impressed with your creativity.

We’ve rounded up plenty of ideas whether you’re traveling with your significant other, the whole family (plus the kids), or a group of friends. Plus, there’s diversity in the price ranges, from the cheapest vacation ideas to more luxe options. If you’re getting a big group together, rent a house for the weekend and make yourselves at home.

Or, if it’s just you and your significant other, venture on a cruise to nowhere—those are short one- or two-night stays with no ports of call so you can explore and enjoy all the amenities on the ship.

Another idea for just the adults is heading to a casino resort near you, and don’t worry, it’s not just about gambling, you and your friends can enjoy restaurants and spa treatments.

And if you’re looking for a cheap vacation idea, you can always enjoy a staycation and be a tourist in your own town—you can use the money you saved on flights and book a hotel room at the nicest hotel nearby. Whatever you choose, these getaway ideas will make for a memorable weekend.

Rent a House

It has all the comforts of home but provides the excitement of something new. Plus, if you’re looking for some of the cheapest vacation ideas, this one is for you. Renting a house for a weekend getaway gives you plenty of freedom—cook, watch movies, take naps on the couch, play board games…the possibilities are endless.

Cruise to Nowhere

A cruise is always a great vacation option, but a weeklong affair is a big commitment. Try a cruise to nowhere—a quick one- or two-night weekend getaway on a cruise ship that goes, literally, nowhere.

Camp Out

A weekend in the woods communing with nature is the perfect antidote for your hectic daily life. First, decide how much you want to rough it: You can stay in a rustic cabin, book a site with room for your car

Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

Want an easy escape without going too far? Check into that quaint bed-and-breakfast or fancy hotel that you’ve always been curious about in your very own (or a neighboring) town. Let someone else cook breakfast, then explore the quirky sights and stores that you’ve passed by millions of times without stopping for a second look.
