Aside from the one week-long vacation we take every summer, most of my trips are overnights or long weekends. I’ve found that those shorter trips require a little more strategic planning than the longer ones because there’s no wiggle room to allow for missed opportunities.
The good news is, it’s easy to do a little simple planning ahead to produce a fun whirlwind overnight getaway. These five tips have worked well for me!
1. Pack a versatile wardrobe.

4. Choose one or two must-do things.
5. Decide on a spending budget and stick to it.
