Never underestimate the power of pressing pause and getting away, even if just for a few days. With more than 55 Hilton Grand Vacations resorts, we have a travel destination perfect for every occasion, and long-weekend getaway destinations are worthy of their own category. 

Here are eight weekend getaway destinations to add to your calendar today. 

Las Vegas, Nevada

Let loose and escape the 9-to-5 grind in Vegas, baby— even if you only have three days to spare. There's no shortage of ways to pack your precious time, but if you've been there, done that, consider adding these Vegas attractions to your itinerary to take you beyond the casinos and crowds:

  • If you haven't had your fill of bright lights, take in the sights of The Neon Museum.
  • Adventure off The Strip and enjoy a hike or mountain bike in Red Rock Canyon.
  • Make the most of your time away and visit two states at once. Stand on the Arizona/Nevada state line at the Hoover Dam.

Where to stay in Vegas: Make yourself at home on The Strip at one of Hilton Grand Vacations' Las Vegas timeshare resorts.

Washington, D.C.

Looking for a cost-effective mini-vacation? Look no further than the nation's capital. You won't need a car during your 3-day weekend in D.C., thanks to the endless amount of things to do in Washington, D.C., all of which are walkable or just a hop and skip away by Lyft, taxi or train.

Fill your time exploring the museums and monuments, most of which are free, and save your hard-earned dollars for:

  • Quenching your thirst with a round or two of craft cocktails in the jazz clubs on U Street.
  • Going undercover at the Operation Spy exhibit at the International Spy Museum.
  • Enjoying a night of the arts for a night out at the Kennedy Center.

Where to stay in D.C.: With a prime spot in the heart of the nation's capital, The District by Hilton Cluboffers the perfect ways to plug into the historic wonders and modern marvels of Washington, D.C.
