Long weekend getaways can be some of the best types of travel. Three and four day trips can often be the perfect amount of time to explore and have fun. Yes, you can even take these shorter trips to places like Puerto Rico and Europe.
No matter how long a trip is I always carry on my luggage (yes even for a two week long Disney World trip plus cruise).
Carrying on saves time and possibly money — depending on the airline.

Last year, when I went to Disney World to attend Disney Dreamers Academy, I was able to pack quickly and not long before my flight, since it was only a 4 day trip (from Thursday-Sunday).
I made sure to bring cute and comfy shoes (Tieks), sneakers, fun graphic tees, a few outfits I could mix and match, and of course I could never forget my denim jacket. That is a staple item in my wardrobe and I never travel, even if it’s only locally to visit Philly, without it.
