There’s so much we love about living in a big, metropolitan city like Los Angeles. There’s constant access to amazing food, art, fashion, music, culture, and more. You never get bored, that’s for sure. But it also means that the occasional weekend getaway isn’t just a luxury; it’s a serious necessity. Every so often we find ourselves itching to get away from the hustle and bustle of L.A. And the only fix is a relaxing weekend away.

No matter where you live—even if it is a smaller city than L.A.—spending a little leisure time exploring a new place can be a revitalizing experience. It’s a great way to recharge, reward yourself for working hard, and even get your creative juices flowing again. And sometimes all you really need is a couple days away to feel like a whole new person—which also means that you don’t have to worry about taking a bunch of time off work. So whenever the vacation itch hits, we start making a wish list of all the places we’d love to travel to next. So with that in mind, we decided to put together a list of 10 locales that we are dying to visit for an upcoming weekend trip.

We can really tell it’s time for another getaway because lately we’ve been spending a little too much time at work browsing HomeAway.com for vacation rentals. HomeAway has the most beautiful listings, so it’s all too easy to go down that rabbit hole! Vacation rentals are the way to go in our opinion, since you get twice the space at half the price of a hotel room—making them perfect for family trips or big group getaways with a bunch of friends. And unlike most other vacation rental websites we’ve encountered, HomeAway listings consist of secondary vacation homes over people’s primary residences—so you won’t find the owner’s old food in the fridge or a closet full of clothes.

So without further ado, here are our dream HomeAway vacation rentals. They’re all just a short drive from a major city or a big airport, making them perfect spots for a quick weekend trip. So pack your bags…
