Winter weekend getaways are perfect for this weather especially since it’s been extremely cold and there are reports that it’s going to snow this weekend, which also happens to be a long weekend celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. So, you’re most likely going to be indoors maybe with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book or Netflix. This is a good time to take a weekend trip or plan the perfect weekend getaways to fill up the rest of winter. If you live in NYC then you have lots of options to choose from depending on what type of fun you have a knack for. Are you into well deserved and over due massages? Looking to snug by a fire place with your lover? Or maybe take a dip in the hot tub? Who knows maybe you’re adventurous and would rather be out in the mountains skiing or zip lining. Whatever you’re in the mood for these places got you covered.
