Get the gang together, it’s time for a weekend getaway to LivCo!
Summer shines its brightest when you kick back and relax, trading busy mornings and frantic afternoons for lounging in the sun and living life in the slow lane.
Renting a lake house, glamp site, or ranch house is one of the best ways to enjoy summer, gathering friends or family together for a long weekend under the same roof. Head outside in the morning, read a novel in the shade at noon, and fit in an afternoon nap before firing up the grill for dinner. Leave your emails unread and get together around the table for meals that last hours, games that get everyone laughing, and memories you’ll look back on fondly for years to come. Here's our roundup of destinations for every type of traveler this summer:
