3 Reasons to Take a Midweek Vacation
1. Take Advantage of Lower Rates
Because many travelers wait until the weekend to go on trips, hotels and B&B’s usually have more availability during the week. As a result, rates on accommodations and travel expenses are lower during the middle of the week. Take advantage of midweek rates and save your money for our specials and packages that cater to individual interests and help personalize your vacation.
2. Enjoy Even Fewer Crowds
Visiting Arlington midweek gives you the chance to enjoy the peace and privacy you desire. While our quiet village is a tranquil destination, no matter what day it is, you’ll feel even more remote during the week. Unplug and reconnect with nature, enjoying shopping and dining in an intimate setting, or simply unwind in the comfort of your guest room.
3. Use up All of Your PTO
Did you know that 55% of all U.S. workers neglect to use their paid time off? Research shows that going on a vacation is actually good for your health, your relationships, and your career. Taking a getaway eliminates stress while improving productivity and your overall sense of well-being. You worked hard to earn those vacation days, so why let them go to waste?
