Your guide to the best weekend getaway

When you don’t have time for a full-fledged vacation, a weekend getaway is a vacation-savvy alternative!

With everyone back to school and work, it can be tough to get away for a week. But you can still live it up with a weekend getaway. Read on to figure out what to do and where to go for your next quick trip.

Tips for Success

A long weekend getaway gives you a few days to step out of your regular life. But it’s just that: a few days. So, you’ll want to maximize your time and soak up every minute.

  1. We know it’s tempting, but don’t go too far away. Choose a destination that won’t take too long to get to. You don’t want to waste your weekend getaway in transit.
  2. Carry-ons only! Minimize hassle and avoid fees by not checking a bag. That way, once you’re on the ground, you can get right to relaxing.
  3. Plan well. With limited time, you want to make sure you know what’s going to happen each day. Don’t spend your morning figuring out what to do. Here are some websites to help you plan your itineraries.
  4. Remember, you only have a few days, so only include what’s most important to you in your agenda. And don’t forget to plan relaxation.

Now, where do you want to go? The best destinations for a weekend getaway allow you to get there fast, are open late, and have lots to do. Check out some of our best suggestions.

New Orleans, LA

The Big Easy is a perfect weekend getaway. Of course, Bourbon Street offers music, drinks, and late nights. Or, consider quieter Frenchmen Street for a less touristy, more authentic experience. Spend a lazy morning with beignets at Café Du Monde and then hop on St. Charles Streetcar (the nation’s only moving historic landmark) to take in the Garden District and a cemetery tour. The National World War II Museum is another popular spot filled with dynamic exhibits. At night, you can look forward to staying in one of the French Quarters’ romantic hotels. Of course, it may be morning by the time you’re ready for bed!

Asheville, NC

For a romantic, low-key weekend getaway, you can’t beat Asheville, NC. This mountain town is home to America’s largest home, The Biltmore. The 8,000-acre estate includes the 250-room home plus spectacular gardens. We highly recommend a tour. You’ll also find restaurants and a winery to complete your experience. Asheville boasts a thriving arts community, too. So you can immerse yourself in the River Arts District popping with eclectic galleries and shops. When you get hungry, savor tapas at Curate or brunch at the local favorite Tupelo Honey Café.

Chicago, IL

The Windy City has a lot to offer—even in just a few days. Don’t miss the Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise. Sip a cocktail while learning all about the town’s amazing architecture. Then hit up Millennium Park to experience Cloudgate, the sculpture locals lovingly refer to as the Bean. Museums like the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry are fantastic ways to spend the afternoon. Or check out history of another kind at historic Wrigley Field. Make sure to get your Chicago-style hot dog with the works, and that means no ketchup! If the hot dog isn’t enough, you’ll have no shortage of restaurants to choose from. Whether you’re looking for Michigan stars at Alinea or pizza from Lou Malnati’s, you won’t leave hungry!

Martha’s Vineyard, MA

Countless adorable weekend getaway spots in New England abound. We think Martha’s Vineyard offers a little bit of everything. Stay at the beachfront Winnetu Oceanside Resort and experience the advantages of the beach (and a life-size chess board) or enjoy one of the countless B&B’s scattered everywhere. Explore the island’s five lighthouses for a glimpse into the past. Nature lovers can indulge in the many beaches and the Aquinnah Cliffs or delve into the beauty of the Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary. You have your choice of so many landscapes plus quintessential New England towns like Edgartown and Oak Bluffs. And did we mention the seafood?

Sonoma, CA

We know Napa Valley gets most of the California winery fanfare, but Sonoma holds its own without the crowds. On a weekend getaway, you can’t get to all the wineries, so you’ll have to narrow down your list. But one way to do that is to consider a wine bike tour! Wine Country Bikes in Healdsburg supplies everything you need—including a picnic lunch and wine holders for your bike! Sonoma stretches all the way to the coast, so take in the sights at Sonoma Coast State Park. When you’re thoroughly dazzled go grab dinner from one of the arrays of memorable restaurants…and maybe another bottle of wine.

Relieve Yourself of the Unwanted Timeshare Burden

Your information is 100% secure and encrypted. We will never sell or share your information with anyone.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
