Weekend escapes: Granbury is second

June 4, 2014

In a USA Today poll, Granbury placed second the for Best Summer Weekend Escape.

Topping the list is the beach getaway of Saugatuck, Mich.

Weekend trippers to Saugatuck, Mich., on the coast of Lake Michigan, come for its artistic community, local dining, numerous B&Bs and plentiful outdoor options, including relaxing on the beaches of the lake or conquering the area sand dunes. While the downtown streets are known for cute shops and galleries, the sugar-sand beaches are the main draw to Saugatuck.

In second place, Granbury is referred to as “a charming town” making frequent appearances on “best small town” lists. It offers visitors an historic square, excellent shopping and plenty of appealing mom ‘n’ pop restaurants.

Third place winner Sedona, located at the heart of Arizona’s stunning Red Rock Country, lies 116 miles north of Phoenix. Cooler summer temperatures certainly add to Sedona’s appeal, but its majestic rock formations, artistic scene and blissful spas make for a fantastic weekend, no matter the temperature.

Twenty nominees were selected by USA Today, and online voters named the top 10.
