Long weekend season is upon us, and my favourite thing to do is head out of town! We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and weekends should be enjoyed with a combination of relaxation and outdoor exploration.
Here are my top 5 weekend escapes and what I look for when choosing that perfect long weekend destination:
This can include family-friendly hiking, swimming pools or hot springs, sandy beaches for playing on, or seasonal activities such as wakeboarding or mountain biking.
My husband is a history buff and if there’s an opportunity to sneak some educational opportunities into our trip for the kids I’ll do that too. Anacortes is an example of a city where you can explore a boutique town that has great historical sites and features wound through the streets.
