The Perfect 3-Day Getaway Itineraries
The average American gets just 10 days of paid time off per year. Though researchers say that 8 days is the ideal vacation length, you shouldn’t wait months to take a vacation. It’s kind of like binge sleeping or binge eating – it’s actually not that restorative or fulfilling.
Researchers also say that taking just one Friday or Monday off of work can be just as beneficial for your mental health as taking an entire week off. Take several short vacations to feel more restored all year round. Three-day vacations are less stressful to plan, easier to find the time for, and aren’t such a big expense as spending on one or two week long vacations a year. Plus, you have more vacations to look forward to.
We maximized our paid vacation time and long holiday weekends for years when we worked at our traditional jobs. We’d compare our companies’ calendars for paid holidays (hello, free vacation days!) and plan three-day getaways for nearly all the long weekends we got off. So grab those calendars and start planning. Where should you go on a short getaway? It should ideally be somewhere you can get to in just a couple of hours so that not all of your time is spent traveling to and from your destination.
Our The Perfect 3-Day Getaway itineraries are designed to help you see the best sights, eat at the must-visit restaurants and stay at the best centrally located hotels to make the most of a long weekend away.

You work hard all year. Don’t let those vacation days go to waste, especially if you’re among the lucky Americans that actually receive the benefit of paid time off.
According to research published in the Journal of Happiness Studies, eight days is the ideal length for a vacation. You have time to get to more far-flung destinations, unpack, unwind, and get settled in to a more relaxed routine than that of your normal work week. The study found travelers have increased feelings of happiness over the first couple of days, but those vibes plateau after the eighth day.
