It’s easy to get restless in the city. Venture to an incredible weekend destination such as a charming village at the base of a mountain or a bustling city with a lot of options for thrilling quests and a bustling cultural scene.[slideshow:103963]

Sometimes it takes a new perspective to get the creative juices flowing, and it only stands to reason that the higher that vantage point the loftier the thoughts. Mountain towns may be just what you need to get ready for a new week of chaos at work.

On the other hand, salt air stimulates the senses while the rhythmic sound of the waves invites meditation, making the beach the perfect spot for a contemplative stroll.

You may want to consider the Central California coastline which is equal parts rugged, romantic and refined – the perfect tinder to spark that creative flame.

Last but not least, while coastal and mountain settings are a “natural” choice for an inspiring walk, there’s plenty to be said for the stimulation of an urban stroll, particularly along streets steeped in history.
