Are you taking advantage of those last minute deals at your favorite hotels? O.K., maybe it does send a lot more junk to your mailbox, but it could be worth it! My husband just kidnapped me last minute for a downtown get-a-way at the Magnolia Hotel in Denver. It’s a quaint boutique hotel and many of these hotels will include breakfast. This one also included “Happy Hour and Appetizers” and “Hot Cookies and Milk” before bed (this was the best).
My husband was sent a last minute deal on Wednesday and we left on Friday. The pluses….the T.V. goes off, conversation begins, new sights are seen and there’s a fun empty nester adventure to tell our kids about. Keep it simple. Pack one bag for the two of you (I have to admit, this is still hard for me to do but I’m working on it). It doesn’t have to be expensive. In this economy, unfortunately, so many places are doing anything they can to lure in business.
On this one bag weekend we also tagged on leaf peeping in the Rocky Mountains since the colors are changing for fall. So, check the deals, pack your one bag and head out the door for a weekend adventure.
In the Reply Box below tell us about your own one bag weekend adventure, whatever part of the country you are in. Maybe you have tips for us or even questions.
