Welcome to Jim Flynn's BEST WEEKENDS

Thanks for visiting our site. We are two weeks away from launching our new and very exciting new website. We apologize for any inconvenience. In the meantime, if you have any specific questions, please email Founder/Editor Jim Flynn at jflynn@bestweekends.com.

We can't wait to show you our new design which will include the ability to search for weekend trips by geography, type (city, seaside, country), features, nearby activities and more!

What Makes BEST WEEKENDS so Unique?

Our destination profiles include all of the following details. This experience based information is unlike information you'd find in any guidebook and will make your trip memorrable and enjoyable.

Destination Overview

  • Getting There
  • When to Go
  • Getting Around
  • General Accommodation & Dining Information
  • General Information on Things to Do

Where to Stay:

The top hotels, inns and B&Bs. We seek out the places that are a cut above the norm and award them an Excellent, Special Occasion or Hall of Fame designation. These are special places that will enhance your romantic weekend getaway and maybe provide some memories that won't soon be forgotten.

Where to Dine:

The best restaurants. These are not ordinary restaurants, they are in fact, extraordinary in their own way.

Things to Do:

The best things to do, where to do them and with whom to do them.

So often people go somewhere and stumble around trying to determine what there is to do and where to do it. We tell you precisely what you need to know so you don't waste any time. We visit the sights and take the tours. If you like to bike we tell you where to rent one and the best routes. We'll tell you the best two or three museums or tours, the best golf course, where to rent a boat, who to call for a fishing charter, where the best shopping is and so much more. You'll know what you want to do and where to do it before you ever get there.

Good To Know:

Highlights the "best" of each destination.

To really get the most out of your weekend getaway, you need to experience the destination like a local."Good to Know, Good to Go" answers the burning questions of our time...where to get the best burger, the best breakfast, the best martini, where to go after dinner, best place to watch the sunrise or sunset, best place to while away a rainy day, best outdoors dining, best lunch spot with a view, where to go to get pampered and much more.

Special Things:

Little known romantic activities.

This BestWeekends Exclusive uncovers special things to see, do or experience on your weekend getaway that you won't find in any guide book; a special place to enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sun rise, a romantic cove for a private picnic, a torch lit sleigh ride through the meadows to a secluded restaurant, a dinner train ride reminiscent of the Orient Express and more based on the special things we find in each individual location.
