Mumbai serves you with every kind of attraction you can ask for. From the ever-reliable Marine Drive to the always-abuzz Chowpatty Beach, the city of dreams has got quite a few dream corners for people of all age groups to hang out and exchange love notes. But if a weekend getaway is what you need, then some of its elite neighbors are sure to make your head nod in approval.
Here take a glance:

i. Goa: Goa is one of those Utopian destinations, where everything seems in order and life is more like a fairy-tale. Amongst its myriad beaches, churches and wildlife parks, you are definitely going to forget the mundane world you come from. Goa leads several lists for weekend getaways from Mumbai, giving you an exquisite option to have the time of your life, and to live one more day.

ii. Shirdi: Shirdi is not your runaway romantic destination but a little bit of spiritualism is not going to do any damage to your kidneys, right? So, take a weekend off from your messed up city life and detoxify your soul before the reverent Sai Baba by paying him homage in his obituary and exploring the many religious and natural attractions of his home town. Shirdi surely is a coveted getaway.

iii. Pune: Though there are several places to visit in Mumbai for couple, a Pune trip can be quite refreshing because of the amalgamation of history and nature which the city pours on your platter. It has some formidable forts, a few appeasing temples and some of the most pocket-friendly restaurants and resorts.

iv. Khandala: For the typically Mumbai magic, you can head to Khandala which has all the ingredients of the local metro but still has a unique flavor to it. Khandala is for the family, for friends, for kids and also for the young lovers as Aamir Khan so wisely told us all in ‘Ghulam’. As a hill station and a hiking destination too, Khandala is a safe bet. Its battery of natural attractions will melt your heart and compel you to revisit the place in the future.

v. Alibag: At 93 km away, Alibag is one of the most coveted weekend getaways from Mumbai. It is a beach destination and has a heady list of temples and forts in its kitty. Quiet and laidback, Alibag makes for a brilliant 2-day trip. Its chief attractions are the Alibag Beach, Devasthan Temple and Kolaba Fort.
