Summer is around the bend, and Memorial Day Weekend is even closer. So we thought we would pause, and suggest a few getaways that are still possible to plan with a just week to think about it.
Who best to turn to than Conde Nast Traveler for getaway ideas? So whether you are on the east side or the west side of this great big country, we’ve culled some thoughts on getting out of town with Sole Serum in your bag, style on your bod, and the ease of a long weekend in your heart.
When #WestCoasters think about a quick trip for the weekend, “Wine Country” inevitably ends up on our lips. During May, take advantage of lower hotel prices and less crowded locales. Book a last-minute flight to Northern California, take one look at the line-free tasting rooms, and you'll soon be a sipping the nectar too. Tip: To ensure you get a bottle you love so much, you'll even pack it in your suitcase, don't be afraid to ask for a different wine if you're not a fan of your first pour.
Come on, there’s a reason that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, it’s always some kind of adventure. With wallet-friendly round-trip airfares, and some 25 percent off hotel rates to be found, there's never been a better time to sample all Sin City has to offer—gambling and pool parties, sure, but also incredible eateries and the world's largest collection of neon signs. For an aerial view of the glittering city, and its desert beyond, go 550 feet above the ground in The High Roller, the tallest ferris wheel in the world. Viva, Las Vegas is right...and high heels are always proper attire (winky face #SoleSurvivors!).
If wine country is a California #GoTo, then Miami, and neighboring Fort Lauderdale are some of Memorial Day's most popular East Coast destinations. And for good reason: Airfare prices are down 32 and 25 percent to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International and Miami International, respectively. An added bonus? The masses diminish the closer the state gets to hurricane season, which means reservations at Michael's Genuine will be easier to come by—and you'll be able to carve out more sand for yourself on South Beach, too.
Our neighbor to the north, Canada has come into its own of late as a favorable exchange rate and bargains north of the border emerge. To mark the long weekend on foreign soil, head to the capital of British Columbia, which is a veritable, picturesque mix of Victorian architecture, sprawling gardens, and quiet fishing hamlets. Bonus: Victoria Day, a major national holiday that always falls the Monday before May 25, will have just passed, meaning you'll be capitalizing on the low rates that follow holiday travel, and less competition for everything tourism. :)
Essentially, we want you to enjoy, #SoleSurviors, so whether your travel style includes towering heels at the blackjack table, or Converse on your bike ride through country roads in Sonoma County, don’t forget to make us part of your long weekend. Cuz, if you know us, you know we love to soothe your soles wherever you are, and whatever you are wearing.
