"TripAdvisor.com is targeting road-trippers with new, one-stop weekend travel planners spotlighting destinations within a few hours' drive. Feeding travelers' appetite for 'fresh ideas of what to do and deals that are close to home' inspired the new Weekend Getaway Guides, says TripAdvisor CEO Steve Kaufer. 'Unfortunately, given the way the travel industry is going, it's timely.' Visitors to the site can peruse select weekend trips within driving distance. They'll find hotel deals, lists of attractions, articles, driving directions even a weekend weather forecast.
