    As of Monday morning around 9:00 AM, I would say New Orleans-good weather time to visit, we have had 2 trips planned but ended up cancelling over the last few years, and I haven't been in at least a decade.

    This is all subject to change at any minute though- :)

    For just a weekend, I'd probably want to go to Sedona. I've never been and it looks beautiful:

    Sedonaimage from prx.orgThere are oodles of other places on my list, but for a short weekend trip I think this would be perfect. A nice mix of getting out of a big city, nature, gorgeous views, and desert landscape, which I love. :)

    For a great weekend escape I don't want to fly anywhere and waste one day just going through the airport security and all that hassle associated.

    To escape city life I would simply mount my kayak on a truck and went to one of the great campgrounds around to enjoy kayaking, fishing and staring at night into campfire with coyotes howling in the background and beer in my hand. :-)

    A whim could take me anywhere... but, at the moment, I'd fly to Oaxaca to eat some mole, peruse the Mercado 20 de Noviembre and the Mercado Benito Juárez, and then head off to Monte Alban for a hike. If time allowed, I'd go to Tlacolula de Matamoros to visit friends and buy some new carpets in Teotitlan del Valle.Monte Albanimage from cityknown.com

    I would love to visit Colorado Springs if it is a surprise weekend trip. I like the coloured mountain and lovely ways to spend the weekend with my loved ones. I always book my tickets from http://www.asaptickets.com/as I only find this platform very reliable when it comes to last minute booking. It would be total fun weekend.

    Right now, living in New England where it doesn't seem to want to warm up? I'm dreaming of sunshine - someplace close enough that you could actually enjoy the weekend without spending the whole time in transit - Tulum, The Bahamas, San Juan, Key West.....I'll take anyplace warm!

    I love the beach. For a surprise weekend getaway, we could go to Crystal Cove State Beach near Newport, Ca. We would stay in a restored cottage right on the beach. The other two possibilities are Catalina Island or The Big Island, Hawaii. Love to swim with the sea turtles and bask on the black sand beach.

    My knee jerk reaction is Paris, but I would need longer than a weekend to explore the city.

    So right now I'd say Pagosa Springs, Colorado because a good soak in a hot springs pool at The Springs Resort & Spa sounds amazing.

    Saint Petersburg (Russia). I bet the cold would make it quite romantic, but mainly, its a place I have wanted to go in a long time. From the UK it could easily be done in a long weekend, and anyone that books me a trip there knows me really well.

    Well, isn't that a lovely scenario to imagine! For me, it's Antigua Guatemala, a place that has a white-knuckle grip on my heart and my husband's, too. It's a short flight from the U.S., no jet lag to deal with, and it's just one of the most drop-dead beautiful small cities in the world. It's perfect for strolling, relaxing in a cafe or hotel courtyard, sitting in the Parque Central or, my preferred activity, disappearing beneath stacks of beautiful textiles.

    I agree with rasto. For just a weekend wouldn't want to deal with airport security. I would head up to Northern California to Big Sur and Monterey Bay. They have the biggest aquarium in the california also Good hikes and the weather is beautiful. Good place to get out of the city/ suburbs and get back to nature.
