Provence has something for just about everyone.
One thing that we frequently hear from readers, friends and family members is amazement that we’re able to travel as much as we do. It may seem like we’re always going somewhere…and usually we are. One way we’re able to travel so much is through strategic use of our very limited vacation time. Like most Americans, we have a limited 2-3 weeks (10-15 days) per year. That means we need to be really smart in how we use our time.
One way we’re able to make the most of our limited vacation time is through weekend getaways. These two- to four-day breaks give us the chance to see the “best of” a destination in a short amount of time. The articles in our weekend getaway section are the best of these experiences. This is how we make the most out of a limited amount of vacation time and still see the world.

Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has the feeling of a small town wrapped in a big city. Once known for its industries like tobacco and textiles, Winston-Salem has broadened its appeal as a center of art, culture, and food while still paying homage to its past.
Mount Airy, North Carolina–affectionately known as Mayberry–was Andy Griffith’s hometown and the inspiration for the setting of The Andy Griffith Show. This charming town offers good eats, excitement in the great outdoors, and unexpected history lessons, with a bit of moonshine thrown in.
