It is nice to take a quick break after a long week. Personally, I love weekend trips. They aren’t long enough, but I fully appreciate them and what they do to my mental health.

Choosing a weekend getaway destination, however, can be difficult when you only have a weekend to spare. Especially with finances as well. To determine which cities offer the best weekend getaways, U.S. News considered factors like accessibility, affordability, and entertainment options, as well as reader votes. These cities are located all around the world.

On their list of 15-weekend getaways, a North Carolina city made the list. Check out U.S. News full list ranked from 10 to number one below. You can see the full list of weekend getaways here.
