7 Steps to the Ultimate Weekend Getaway

7 Steps to the Ultimate Weekend Getaway

Reclaim your weekends for adventure. We curated a getaway guide fit for adventurers, weekend warriors, and everyone in between.

1. Pick a destination.

Close your eyes and put your finger on the map. This summer, we’re headed to Ojai, California for the ultimate weekend getaway. Nestled near the coast in Ventura County, Ojai is known for its scenic hike and bike trails, wineries, and kayaking at Lake Casitas. At Caravan Outpost, visitors can stay in one of 11 carefully curated Airstreams that reflect the beauty and culture of the California coast.

2. Kick up your feet.

Grab a good book or your adventure journal and find a spot to clear your mind. Unpack your Kammok Roo hammock, suspend yourself with Python Straps, and kick back under the open sky or night stars. This hammock is lightweight and portable – the perfect travel companion for any adventure anywhere.

3. Stay cool.

Stay cool with the only cooler that keeps ice chilly wherever you are.  Whether on the beach or the open road, bring a YETI Hopper Two packed with your favorite beverages and snacks. Ours will be packed with dried mangos and lots of water.

4. Pack light.

One bag is all you need to grab-n-go. Fill your weekender with apparel that’s breathable and packable. We’re packing Outdoor Voices. This apparel company inspires us with incredibly soft fabric and lots of layers to do the things we love. This summer, opt for their new Mirage collection. To keep out of the sun, throw in a pair of shades from Zeal Optics. Every pair has polarized, plant-based lenses. Our favorite style? 6th Street.

5. Choose your adventure.

Connect with others as you get outside through The Outbound Collective. Join one of their meet-ups wherever you go, coast to coast.  Once you’ve got your crew, find the perfect spot to drop in with your Oru Kayak. Its folding capability means Oru goes where you go.

6. Fuel your fun.

You’ve got your gear, you’ve got your crew – you’re almost set!  When on vacation, let someone else figure out dinner. Sun Basket delivers organic meals to your door wherever you are. We’re fans of their vegetarian options. Cook up shakshuka in your campfire skillet.

7. Crank some tunes.

Lastly! What’s a weekend adventure without an epic soundtrack? Don’t forget to pack a portable speaker. The Beoplay A1 Bluetooth Speaker from B&O PLAY is our pick. Splash and dust resistant, it’s equipped for any adventure.
