why-1With Valentine’s Day around the corner, what’s a Traveling Diva to do?  Restaurants will be packed full with obnoxious couples pawing at each other and for the single gal, Vday only shows the ugly side of commercialism and Disney-ized fantasies which you can read up on, on your own time. It’s enough to drive you to hibernate until summer.


Luckily, you have options.  Internet savvy divas can always find that little hole in the wall that offers comfort and space, that off the beaten path experience that’s a quick respite from Vday crazyness.

One place to try out is, an LA-based start-up that offers a new way to book close-to-home getaways, a travel site completely focused on the 2-4 day escape and the spontaneous weekend trip.

While catering to the short-term, weekend and last-minute traveler, this site uses propriety algorithms combined with original editorial content, provided by locals (my favorite part.) Recommended itineraries are based on user-selected criteria including destination, budget and the type of experience they’d like to have (romantic, family time, bargains etc).
