10 Ways to Have a Weekend Getaway Without Actually Going Anywhere

  I was thinking with the upcoming long weekend for Memorial Day how I regret not booking a vacation or making bigger and better plans to seek out some ultra-fulfilling activity or adventure. Then I had a moment. Why can’t you still have a weekend getaway without actually going anywhere?
