Is it that time of year again? You're probably thinking that it's about time for a much-needed weekend getaway (or longer), and we don't blame you.
When you're feeling a little more wiped out after work than usual or the dreary cold weather is bringing you down, a mini-vacation might be exactly what you need.
Here are a few perfect places where you can go to escape and refresh anytime you want:
1. Las Vegas, Nevada
If your idea of a relaxing time includes casinos and hundreds of entertainment options to choose from, Las Vegas makes a great little getaway.
Since Vegas is located in the Mojave Desert, even if you don't like gambling you can still enjoy the gorgeous weather by the pool and out on the Strip.
2. San Diego, California
If gorgeous weather is what you're yearning for, why not give sunny San Diego a try? Set alongside the Pacific Ocean, San Diego is a city with great beaches and plenty of other attractions to check out.
For instance, there's the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and a variety of museums, golf courses, and parks that you can explore.
3. Dominican Republic, Caribbean
Want to go somewhere with great weather that's a little more exotic? The Dominican Republic is always a picturesque option with plenty of beaches, resorts, and golf.
The Dominican Republic is great for people who want to kick back and relax, but if you're feeling adventurous there are a lot of cool landmarks you can check out, like gothic Catedral Primada de America and the Caribbean's tallest mountain, Pico Duarte.
