  1. This is a great list. We loved DC and we’re heading to San Diego next month for a few days. I’d also add that Chicago also makes a great weekend trip or extended vacation. #weekendwanderlust

  2. We do many of our trips as weekends to condense vacation days and work around holidays. Great list. Looking forward to a weekend trip to San Diego to visit family this spring.

  3. I have only visited one of those cities. I need to get a move on!

    You forgot to add your lovely New Orleans to the list though! That is one of my favorite places to visit 🙂

  4. Nice list! We have a goal to explore San Francisco in 2018. We’re always looking for places that will make a fun 2-3 day trip.

  5. Love this list, plan on visiting many of these places! I live like 3 hrs from New York City! But i really would like to go to SanFran for the architecture

  6. I’ve taken many of the ones you listed as weekend trips and couldn’t agree more – they are all perfect. I haven’t been to San Diego, but definitely want to go there soon too. Great ideas!

  7. I have always wanted to go to New York and to San Francisco but living in Europe it takes longer to reach, so a weekend won’t really be enough. These are all great travel suggestions in the States though! 🙂
