Escape for a Long Weekend Getaway

It’s that time of year again! The sun is hot, kids are out of school and everyone is looking for a little escape from the mundane. Whether you are canoeing on one of the 100+ lakes at Itasca State Park or relaxing with a new book on a beach in Cancun, Mexico, protecting your skin is critical. BREVENA’S Daily Hydration Moisturizer provides a lightweight barrier against the free radicals your skin faces every day. After applying our lightweight moisturizer, layer your choice of SPF on top to provide your skin with the protection it needs. You can even mix the two together (ensure you use a high SPF as mixing will dilute the strength). Now that your skin is protected, here are a few places to enjoy a carefree long weekend getaway:

Our Top Picks

Duluth, MN- Known as the “San Francisco of the North”, this city has local breweries, shopping and spectacular views. Drive along skyline parkway, stopping at Enger Tower to take in a view of the city at sunset. If you are looking for a bit of history on the area you can take a stroll along Bob Dylan Way or visit the hauntingly beautiful Glensheen Mansion. For a picnic lunch, head to Northern Waters Smokehaus where they have the best smoked lake trout spread!

New Orleans, LA- Take a ferry boat to Algiers and explore the French Quarter, taking in the rich history and heritage of this beautiful city. Stroll through New Orleans City Park appreciating the scents and sights the beautiful flowers and gardens offer. Hop a ride on one of the country’s oldest antique wooden carousels and after fill your belly with New Orleans gumbo from the award winning Gumbo Shop restaurant.

Denver, CO-You will feel so close to the sky when you arrive!  If you brought the kids (or if you are a kid at heart), visit the Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park and enjoy a multitude of rides and slides. Nature lovers won’t want to miss Denver’s Botanical Gardens or the many National Parks that are a quick drive away. With affordable airfare, make Denver your next stop!

Remember to take BREVENA on your next adventure. Whether you’re hitting the mountains or the beach, we have products for everyone!
