You’re out having drinks with your friends, having a great time, and somebody yells out that you should all take a weekend getaway together. That sounds fantastic, and you quickly volunteer to set it up.
The next day, with a clearer head, you start to question what you got yourself into. Planning a weekend getaway for a group is challenging. Here are some tips to help you get started:
- Be upfront with your motivations for travel. If somebody wants an active vacation, and somebody else is looking for rest & relaxation…you need to know that before you commit to traveling together.
- Make sure everyone is prepared to compromise. All it takes is one person who refuses to compromise to throw a monkey wrench in the planning.
- Be sympathetic to everyone’s budget limitations. Be nice.
With those tips in mind, here are some getaways that our writers have tagged as good for groups. If your group includes kids, our kid-friendly getaways might be more helpful instead.
