Future Plan with Us: Benefits of an Extended Stay Hotel for Your Next Getaway
As you start dreaming of your next holiday, you may find yourself looking for travel inspiration. Do you want to spend a week in the Rocky Mountains, or does your ideal vacation involve exploring the many statues and monuments of Washington, D.C? There are hundreds of 1-week holiday ideas available, many of them close to major centers and affordable extended stay hotels.
Below are our favorite one-week vacation ideas for the USA. All are popular destinations with a range of activities for both kids and adults.
Denver, Colorado: The Mile-High City
Denver sits below the towering Rocky Mountains and offers all kinds of one-week vacation ideas. USA national parks such as the Arapaho National Forest are less than an hour’s drive from Denver and provide plentiful opportunities for camping, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. Be sure to check out Dinosaur Ridge, one of the world’s most famous fossil locations.
If you’re enjoy street art, stroll RiNo and the Santa Fe Arts District, where every alley and underpass is its own art galley. Golfers can tee off at Harvard Gulch, the city’s beautiful nine-hole course .
Chicago, Illinois: Jazz, Art, and Fireworks
Chicago is filled with some of the best one-week vacation ideas in the USA. Art deco skyscrapers soar above modern art installations, like Cloud Gate, a reflective sculpture known affectionately as “the Bean” to locals.
Explore the history of Chicago’s distinct building styles at the Chicago Architecture Center, or take the kids to see the aardvarks, monkeys, and rare pygmy hippopotamuses that call Lincoln Park Zoo home.
Looking for some romantic travel inspiration? Take a dinner cruise on Lake Michigan and watch the city lights reflected in the water. You’ll want to take your time exploring Chicago, so why not book into an extended stay hotel in one of the city’s quieter suburbs or neighboring towns?
Explore Washington, D.C.
When you’re looking for travel inspiration in the United States, especially for 1-week holiday ideas, Washington, D.C. should be at the top of the list. Actually, you might want a two-week vacation here: one week will only whet your appetite for the capital’s many attractions.
Climb the steps to the Lincoln Memorial and look out over the National Mall or take a day to kayak up the Potomac. Enjoy the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden or catch a glimpse of history at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
Staying in D.C. itself is expensive. Instead, book a week-long stay in an extended stay hotel in one of the towns surrounding the capital, and take day-trips to the attractions you want to see.
Take Advantage of Extended Stay Hotel Rates
1-week holiday ideas require seven days of hotel accommodations as well as meals. If you stay at a traditional hotel, food and accommodation costs can quickly mount up. Instead, book a stay at a WoodSpring Suites hotel, and take advantage of our weekly rate deal. You’ll get a suite capable of sleeping one to four guests comfortable, with an in-suite kitchen to help you prepare your own meals. We make your travel dreams more affordable. And as most of our hotels have pet-friendly policies, you can even bring your furry family member along for the holiday!
