Looking for last minute plans for the long weekend? Here are four fantastic destinations that Team LT can’t stop dreaming about!
Luke L, Product: If you’ve never been to Tahoe then let me tell you something….you’re missing out. And if you haven’t been up to Tahoe in both the winter AND summer, then you’re missing out too. Growing up in the East Bay, the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area have become somewhat of a second home at any time of the year. When we get good snowfall like we did this last winter, the terrain on snowboard/skis/snowmobiles is phenomenal. Once that all melts and the summer months warm up it’s also just as nice to hang out lakeside or on a boat, if you can get lucky. As a California tourist or a new resident add this to your list of weekend getaways as soon as you can get up there. You’re sure to have some awesome experiences and as a cherry on top — Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America — so it’s worth dipping your toes in.
Tessa G, Accessory Buyer: My favorite summer weekend escape is Fire Island. Just a hop, skip and a jump (or a train and a ferry ride) from Manhattan, Fire Island is a barrier island located off the south shore of Long Island and filled with amazing restaurants, bars and incredible beaches. It also has zero paved roads, so no cars allowed. Whether you’re taking oyster shooters at Sand Castles restaurant in Cherry Grove, or walking the Sunken Forest, a rare ecological oasis, this beach getaway is sure not to disappoint.
Cindy H, Talent Acquisition: If you’re looking for a casual-cool California Coastal destination look no further than Point Reyes National Seashore in Western Marin. Often overlooked due to its more glamorous neighbors to the east (Sonoma, Napa, et. all), Western Marin has cozy charm that sizzles in the bask of the sun. Indulging in some oysters al fresco at Hog Island Oyster co is highly recommended. Or you can opt for the baked version at The Marshall Store down the road. Regardless of where you go to indulge, don’t forget to spend some time driving around the wide open spaces with the top down and you’ll forget you’re just 50 miles north of the City! This is an easy day trip for those who can’t get away for too long, but also a great setting for a quiet weekend getaway. Stay at a cozy inn in Inverness and remember to forget your phone behind. This trip is all about enjoying the simple pleasures in life!
Nikki H, Office Manager: If you find yourself dreaming for fresh lobster and the sound of the ocean, Cape Cod is a weekend getaway must. Since everyone in the North East is kind of thinking the same thing, there will be a touch of traffic on your way in. However, it is all worth it for the beachy charm that awaits you. Walk around Hyannis (grab a light bite at Common Ground) and Provincetown (pop into shops, boutiques, cafes and bars and also get some rays at the beach). You must eat Sundae School (the best ice-cream ever) and a meal overlooking the ocean at Ocean House and finish off the wonderful weekend with cocktails at Wequassett or Chatham Bars Inn.
