Happy Humpday! I hope you are having a great week! Since I am gainfully employed….don’t get me wrong I am not complaining but working Monday-Friday doesn’t allow for many weeklong vacations. With that said Mark and I try to get away for as many long weekends as we can. Living in Florida we can’t jet to California for the weekend but Wine Country is definitely on my list!
Our absolute favorite place to go is Chicago. Granted every time we have gone it is for our birthday’s 4th of July weekend aka it’s warm. Ahhhhh this summer will be the big 30! We have a tradition the minute we get off the plane to drop our stuff off and head to Gibson’s for a fancy lunch.
Going to the top of the Signature Room for a drink while having the best views of the city is one of my most fondest birthday memories.
Between the shopping, walking, eating, beer brewery touring and all the holiday festivities it definitely ranks as one of the favorites. Had to get some Barre in with all those Crumbs cupcakes!
Another top place that usually makes it in one to two times a year is New Orleans. Due to the fact with the hour flight and time change you land the same time you take off…..well technically. Shopping, food and amazing culture.
This year we made the drive over to Baton Rouge for the Gator/LSU game. Even though the Gators lost (I mean that is all they did last year) the fans and city were so welcoming!
Boston my hometown for Redsox games and staying at the Liberty hotel. It is so amazing how it was originally a jail. All the bars and restaurants have names like “Clink” and other various prison lingo. Whenever we travel we try to go on a brewery tour. Sam Adams of course! (My mother wasn’t happy when I told her we took the Orange line out there Boston peeps reference).
Since my sister lives in the “Dirty Jerz” (her words not mine) we make up to the New Jersey/New York area a lot. Of course it is held very near to my heart with family and now engagement stories.
There are other fun weekends away but these are some of the favorites. If you are hitting up any of these places soon email me for recommendations you know I have researched all of them! So my question after this trip down memory lane. Where is your favorite place to get away for a long weekend? Tell me your favorite things about that city! Charleston is on my radar. Let me know I am in need for a quick getaway! xoxoxo
