Human Interest

It’s summer, which means it’s time to take a vacation!

Not to sure where you want to go, but know you need a break? Not to fret, Pack Up + Go will decide your location for you. The self-proclaimed “surprise travel agency” will completely plan a three-day weekend getaway for you.

For those who are open to a random adventure, this company will decide the destination for you. To plan a trip, all you have to do is submit a budget for each traveler, your vacation dates, as well as your destination preferences. Travelers will also be asked their hobbies and interests so the company can best plan your vacation.

A week before you’re set to leave, the company will send you an email including: “The weather forecast for your mystery destination, recommended items to pack, any luggage size restrictions, where to go and when.”

Travelers will only know their destination a few days before they depart. In the mail, you will receive a letter with the details of your trip. However, you are still not allowed to open the information! It is only when you are at your designated departure location that you are allowed to open the letter.

In the important piece of mail, travelers will be alerted as to where they are going, their accommodation, as well a city guide. The company also states that they send a “curated list of recommendations from everything from cafes to nightlife to rainy day activities.” Some vacations people have been sent on are Phoenix, Milwaukee, Savannah, Philadelphia, and more!

For a three-day weekend vacation, it will cost you a minimum of $650 per person. However, if you are looking to do a road trip with some of your best friends, that will cost you a little less at $400 per person.

This spontaneous adventure might allow you to find a new favorite city in the U.S. Not to mention, it will also give you memories that will last forever.
