weekend breaks to various parts of the country. Individuals and couples,
young and old, have started to travel more frequently through various media

to a weekend in Rome or Madrid, since they are in Blackpool or Cornwall.
However, as a weekend break locations have evolved, they also have more
vision, a growing number of people are taking mini-cruise breaks, weekend
golf breaks, and even theme park weekend breaks.
