  • It’s not often you hear the words “cowboy,” “wellness,” and “chocolate” in the same sentence. But at Travaasa Austin — a new eco/adventure retreat in Austin celebrating all things Texas —  cowboys, wellness and chocolate are a common combination. Choose from several activity themes including: adventure (horseback riding), culinary (cooking classes), culture (ecology lessons), fitness (yoga), and spa (massage). All meals and onsite activities are included in the per night fee, which starts at $480 per person. Book anytime between now and May 31, 2011 and receive a 30% discount for travel anytime between now and December 31, 2011. (Via Travel+Leisure)
  • You must visit Portsmouth, New Hampshire to understand why the coastal town is considered among America’s prettiest. Portsmouth also happens to be one of the nation’s oldest towns (the third oldest by some accounts), so every nook and cranny tells an age-old story. For affordable accommodations, check out the Homewood Suites. The rooms are comfortable living spaces comprising bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms. Book by May 30, 2011 for travel between now and June 17 and pay only $99 per night. While two weekends in May (May 20-21, 27-30) are not included in this deal, all other weekends are eligible. (Via Travelzoo)
