North America has hundreds of weekend hotspots. Depending on which state or province you live in, in United States or Canada, you would certainly have your personal favorites. The likes of New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or Chicago in the United States and numerous places in Alberta, the likes of Toronto, Vancouver and others in Canada or the tropical destinations in Mexico are certainly a favorite among millions. But most of these places are not typically weekend destinations because you cannot possibly explore everything in just two days or over an extended weekend. Besides, a weekend destination should ideally be idyllic, serene and calm while not letting go on adventure and excitement factors.
Here are 5 North American hotspots worth getting away to for the weekend.
San Juan Islands

A quick ferry ride from Seattle or you can take the sea plane and you will be amidst lush green islands which cannot be described in words. San Juan Islands is also a haven for kayakers, cyclers and ideal for families. From the Whale Museum to the Moran State Park, there is a lot to explore in San Juan Islands that would keep you satiated.
