Friday is such a celebrated day. And although today is feeling much like a Tuesday, the fact remains: the weekend is here! We daydream about exotic getaways during the week but when those are less tangible ideas, what else can you do to enjoy your weekend to its fullest? We have a few ideas that you might want to bookmark.
1) Be a Tourist in a New City
Try doing a search on Yelp.com for just about anything you fancy and you’ll see that you can find about a hundred different locales offering the same thing. So instead of heading out to the same breakfast cafe or coffee shop, take a drive to a nearby city or town and see what options they have to offer. You might find a hole-in-the-wall gem you’ll be raving about to all of your friends.
2) Stay at a Bed ‘n Breakfast Inn
The daily alarm clock is generally our enemy as it wakes us up from our peaceful slumber. Weekends can be our only chance to sleep in and remain enamored in our bed sheets, so if that’s your priority for the weekend, indulge in some slumber and peace at a nearby bed ‘n breakfast inn. Typically resembling cottages, these inns offer at-your-service amenities like home-cooked meals, themed food receptions, spa packages and romantic settings for couples.
3) Pretend You’re a Food Blogger
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but in all honesty, who doesn’t like a good meal? Grab a few of your favorite people and try food specials from different hot spots. Take pictures, share via social media or just discuss and indulge in the flavors with your friends. You may have to do an extra workout session at the gym but the experience: delicious!
4) Pamper Yourself
When was the last time you did something special for yourself? Take a weekend out of the month to schedule appointments for relaxing pampering sessions. There are a few spa locations that allow for all-day access to pools, hot springs, mud baths and the jacuzzi; added massage or body treatments may be charged at an extra cost.
Make an attempt to visit your local museums or art galleries. They are not only budget-friendly, but they offer student discounts or even free admission. You can educate yourself on historical information or even discover a new artist. Pondering on a painting for an entire minute can even alleviate some stress!
6) Enjoy the Outdoors
Don’t you hate it when your friends post images of themselves at the beach, the park, on a hike or any place that doesn’t involve the office during YOUR working hours? So instead of locking yourself indoors for the weekend, hang out with nature. In today’s internet-driven generation, we really do forget to stop and smell the roses.
So whether you decide to stay in for the weekend or conquer any of these to-do adventures, we hope you have an amazing weekend!
