A North Dakota Romantic Weekend Getaway right under your nose?
If you live in or near a North Dakota major metropolitan area like Minot,
Grand Forks, Bismark or Fargo, there are many great deals and weekend
getaway opportunities at your own back door. Off season times are
great opportunities to stay at world class resorts close to home
for much less than you might expect. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and
explore the pampering they offer. Although you aren't going far
from home, the right resort or hotel can make you feel as if you
are another world away.
North Dakota Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see Fairview Bridge and Cartwright Tunnel or Killdeer Mountains Four Bears Scenic Byway or attend Band Day Festival in Williston in May
or Arts Dakota - New Bohemia in Mayville in April. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great North Dakota events like Killdeer Mountain Roundup Rodeo in July or University of North Dakota Indian Association Wacipi Powwow in March.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of North Dakota,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Minot, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Stanley resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Minot."
