South Dakota Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!

Hop a Flight

Hop a flight to see Mobridge & Lake Oahe or Timber Lake or attend Mobridge Area Art Show in April or Spring Fine Arts and Crafts Show in Aberdeen in March. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider checking out some of the great South Dakota events like Boss Cowman Rodeo and Celebration in Lemmon in July or Hats Off to the Artists Show in Faulkton in March. A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of South Dakota, but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Buffalo, and then enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful Newell resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another. The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say "Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Buffalo."
