Each year we usher out the old and welcome in the new by making New Year’s resolutions. It’s a long-established tradition to make them, yet they are rarely long-lasting! From losing weight and getting fit, to spending less and saving more, getting organized or rekindling the romance, these resolutions rarely stick. We’ve taken on some of those challenges and offered practical (and enjoyable) solutions.
Resolve to: Get Healthy and Fit
Instead of heading to the gym, why not head outdoors? Get out and get going while on vacation. Find challenging hiking trails in Juneau, AK when you book a stay at Pearson’s Pond Luxury Inn and Adventure Spa (the scenery and opportunity to observe wildlife are unparalleled!), white water raft at Hartzell House Bed and Breakfast in Addison, PA, or ski downhill or cross country at some of the top inns to chill out after hitting the slopes.
Resolve to: Spend Less and Save More
Special packages to the rescue! While weekend warriors are always welcome, there is value to be found mid-week and offseason. Fall at the beach offers fewer crowds and waters that have been warming up all summer when you check in to Bayfront Marin House in Saint Augustine, FL. Enjoy a last minute getaway and take advantage of the 20% discount when you book a room the day before or the day of check-in at L’Auberge Provencale Bed and Breakfast in White Post, VA Extend your stay and receive a discount at Greenlake Guest House in Seattle, WA when you book for five or more nights. For the best deals use the link to the inn’s own website and always book direct!
Resolve to: Rekindle the Romance
Swoon-worthy getaways await. Relationships, much like travel, bring a great amount of excitement, adventure, and thrill. Why not book a romantic staycation to discover your home city together in a new way, or jet off to The Big Island of Hawaii and swim under a waterfall when you stay at the Holualoa Inn in Holualoa, HI, or wake up overlooking the Shenandoah Valley in a glass tree house cabin at Iris Inn Bed & Breakfast.
Resolve to: Tap into your Creative Side
Let your inner self-emerge! Get creative and take a class. For example, you can experience a unique artistic adventure with an established artist, Karen Rinaldo, at The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth, MA with their Exploring Watercolor One-on-One package. Chef Monica offers Moroccan cooking classes at the Chestnut Street Inn In Sheffield, IL. Your choices are endless so there is no excuse to put off tapping into your creative side.
Resolve to: Splurge a Little
Treat yourself! You deserve it. When you stay at a bed & breakfast not only is your stay included but often a full gourmet breakfast such as the one served at Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast in Newberg, OR. Savor Pacific Ocean views on the veranda or in the privacy of your room at Stanford Inn by the Sea in Mendocino, CA. You can even live large at a B&B mansion boasting both glamour and charm!
