Any recs for a semi-affordable, last minute get away? I’m still 100% remote, I’m burned out & I need a change of scenery for a few days. I’d plan to go for a long weekend & then work remotely for part & take part completely off.

St. Croix, USVI is very easy because it’s still domestic and has good cell and WiFi service. Curaçao is also a very affordable and incredibly gorgeous destination.

The OP said he’s only going for a few days. Though I think Hawaii, Costa Rica, and the VI are fine ideas, it is a little far! I’d could think Miami, but if you’re from Denver, why not Vegas and get a great room at the Wynn. The food at their steakhouse is fantastic, by the way, and hang out by the pool and see a show. Or gamble, if that’s your thing.

If that’s the case then perhaps, but social distancing is sort of impossible unless you want to go camping )not my thing). But if the OP is vaccinated… but one cool thing to do in Vegas is to take a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon to see the sunset, land, spend some time in the canyon, then go back to Vegas’s private airport and seeing the city at night. Not as expensive as you’d think. I did it once with a friend I was there with whose wife doesn’t like helicopters. I had a blast.

Oh man your options are endless…Maui is beautiful right now. Hot during mid day so you won’t feel bad about working with the AC on, but unbeatable in the mornings and afternoon. Also believe they are offering incentives because they need tourists to keep their economy afloat.

Look in to Hawaii airline. When I went a few months ago they were offering a free round trip if you signed up for their card—no minimum purchase amount required. Seemed like a no brainer travel hack.

Where are you?

Take a train ride to another State. You’ll have nothing to do (unless you take a personal hotspot) because the internet on trains is hit or miss and you can unwind and let your mind have some still time. Then, you visit the destination and hop back on the train and go home. I just did this and it was really nice to check out and unplug.

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
