Fortunately, there is not a whole lot of planning that needs to go into a weekend getaway.
This is because a weekend getaway is more like an escape than a traditional vacation. A traditional vacation involves a lot of planning around sightseeing, activities, and tours. It also involves quite a bit of packing and paperwork, telephone conversations with travel agents or airlines and hotels.
With a weekend getaway, you have the option to do as little or as much as you desire.
