Not everyone has the time or money for an extended vacation, but most of us can manage several days or a long weekend away. Throw in some relaxation and a little pampering and a short getaway can feel like a real break — especially when that getaway focuses on your favorite hobby or interest.
Themed vacations are a hot travel trend this year and a number of inns and bed & breakfasts around New England are adding new riffs on standard stays — experiential adventures such as cooking classes, beer making, lobster fishing and even axe throwing.
That’s right, axe throwing.
“At New England Inns & Resorts we’ve found that themed travel packages continue to grow in popularity with travelers,” says Beth Steucek, CEO, New England Inns & Resorts Association. “Not only do they tend to offer added-value, but they also generally offer a unique experience beyond spa and golf.”
Packages run the gamut of interesting activities.
