The Perfect Escape for Student Residents of ROSS’ Apartments

September 9, 2015

The start of a new semester brings new school supplies, new schedules and new course work. Although college students may not like to admit it, we can tell they’re way beyond ready for classes to start back up again!

Before classes start taking over and the residents of ROSS’ college student apartments for rent find themselves turning down weekend plans because they’re tied to a desk, hurriedly finishing a term paper due on Monday, we think all students should spend their free weekends (while they last) doing something that lets them escape from even the very thought of schoolwork.

There’s no better way to set yourself free –at least for a little while – than going on a weekend getaway. Thrillist released a great article that lists “The 9 Best Weekend Trips Within Driving Distance of DC.” Below, we have categorized the most compatible personalities for our five favorite getaways!

The Crab Lover – St. Michael’s, Maryland

  • Drive Time: 1.5 hours
  • Why: “The entry point to Maryland’s Eastern Shore is full of personality and crabs.”

The Beach Bum – Lewes/Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

  • Drive Time: Approximately 2.5 hours
  • Why: “A sandy beach to help with your tan, plus lively nightlife and restaurants on the rise.”

The Mountain Men and Women – Sperryville, Virginia

  • Drive Time: Approximately 1.5 hours
  • Why: “Prime access to Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park meets small-town charm.”

The Wine Enthusiast – Charlottesville, Virginia

  • Drive Time: Approximately 2.5 hours
  • Why: “This cozy town is part-historic and part-hospitality, because it serves as a launch point to check out some of Virginia’s best wineries. Its college-town status means top cheap eats too.”

The Foodie – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Drive Time: Approximately 3 hours
  • Why: “A food-centric city with a let’s-party attitude served alongside history and quirky sights.”

As you can see, the coolest thing about each of these trips is that they provide a large variety of entertainment within two hours of your bastion of higher learning; meaning, you can leave after your last class on Friday and be back before the professor clears her throat Monday morning!

You can also see that the coolest thing about ROSS’ college student apartments is that they deliver apartment living that’s in a class by itself, conveniently located near – or with easy access to – the University of Maryland, George Washington University, Catholic University of America, Gallaudet, Howard University and Marymount.
