I've always been a fan of hitting the road with my girlfriends for a weekend getaway. Fortunately, in Colorado, we have so many beautiful places around us, we don't have to go too far to 'get away from it all.'

When getting out of town, I am, of course, always looking for budget-friendly accommodations, and hey, I love vintage charm. The roadside lodge with neon lights is kind of my thing. (My college boyfriend and I road tripped through Oregon once, and our room had a swan mural painted on the wood-paneled wall. You just can't get that in a Holiday Inn.)

And then check out the Amigo Motor Lodge on Instagram and try to not book a trip there.
