Mini breaks can be a great way to have a holiday with friends or family without having to spend thousands. Holiday prices have started to rise again and with many people restricted to school holidays, there often is simply not the funds to allow all the family to get away abroad for a week or two year after year.
Mini breaks are a fantastic way to give you that boost you need from a holiday without breaking the bank. There is a huge array of mini breaks you can take and there really is something for everyone. If you want to go somewhere where you can explore local attractions in the day and party or dine out in the evening, then cities are often a great place to visit. Many cities are inundated with historical locations and amazing sight seeing opportunities and plenty of bars and restaurants to visit in the evening.
If you are looking for something a little quieter then why not opt for a country retreat or even a spa break away in a hotel. Some parts of Scotland are fantastic for family breaks. If you enjoy walking then you will not be disappointed with a trip to the lochs of Scotland and if travelling with children, Loch Ness is a must. There is a fantastic museum right near the Loch Ness which talks about the history of the loch and the monster that is said to lurk in the waters.
