Jazz Up Your Winter With a Theme-Weekend Getaway

Work weeks are long. By the time the weekend rolls around, no one would blame you for wanting to spend your time couch surfing while watching reruns of your favorite TV shows. But, if you’re looking to break out of the old routines, try packing up your bags and hitting the road for a tailor-made Theme Weekend getaway.

Theme weekends at a bed and breakfast will give you a chance to unwind the way you want, whether that means investigating in full detective gear for a murder mystery weekend, wearing comfy pajamas while eating chocolate-dipped strawberries on a girlfriend’s getaway, showcasing period costumes to commemorate the Civil War or throwing on an apron before crafting a mouth-watering epicurean menu. And don’t worry; the cozy sofas and flat-screen TVs at the inns will guarantee your couch surfing days can continue.

Murder Mystery Weekends
WindowA fellow guest at the inn you’re staying at is found dead as a door nail. Whodunit? Maybe it was you, your partner or the person staying in the suite next to yours (better check those locks). Gather with the other surviving guests for a night of playing detective to catch the killer! Everyone is a suspect this weekend.
