If the rat race is beginning to catch up with you, you don't have to drop thousands on a vacation. Just hopping in a car and going for a weekend drive is enough to recharge.
Enterprise Rent-a-Car is making it easy and cheap to take a road trip with weekend rates as low as $12.99 per day. The offer is good through May 22, 2018, and valid for rentals of economy- or compact-class cars that begin on a Friday and end on the following Monday.
Here are a few trips to consider for your weekend drive:
San Francisco to Big Sur
If you are based in San Francisco, enjoy a drive along the coast. Travel from the city to Big Sur and you will feel a world away.
Driving along Highway 1 south from the city is one of the most iconic road trips in the world. Half Moon Bay's stunning beaches are a must-stop as is a stroll along Santa Cruz's legendary boardwalk. Then travel to Monterey Bay, stopping to see its historic Cannery Row and aquarium.
Finish up in Big Sur but not before taking in the breathtaking views along the coast as well as an obligatory pause at the Bixby Bridge for a photo.
New York City to the Catskills
If the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple are dragging on your psyche, take a break with a drive to the Catskills. Traveling along the wooded Palisades and Taconic parkways are sure to ease the worries of city life.
Stop to stroll through charming Hudson Valley villages such as Poughkeepsie and Rhinebeck, hit up the eclectic artist town of Woodstock, swing by the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site or get your shop on at the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets on your way home.
Adventure-lovers can pack their hiking boots or load up mountain bikes for a stop at Overlook Mountain Wild Forest.
Phoenix to Williams, Arizona
If you find yourself in Phoenix, Arizona, it's just a short jaunt to Williams and the Grand Canyon. Travel on the famous Route 66 for part of the journey and leave your car behind, swapping it out for a historic ride on the Grand Canyon Railway to the South Rim of the national park.
On the way back, take a Pink Jeep Tour through the red rock desert in spiritual Sedona.
Miami to the Florida Keys
The Florida Keys are just a short drive away from the busy beaches of Miami and a stop in at a roadside seafood shack or a glimpse of one of the many souvenir shops is enough to make road trippers feel they are miles away from real life.
Take a break in Key Largo, scuba dive in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, check-in to the Jules Undersea Lodge or visit the Dolphin Research Center along the way.
