5 Best Vacation Destinations for Busy Lawyers

By George Khoury, Esq. | Last updated on

Being a lawyer can be stressful. And while the work can be fiscally, mentally, and spiritually rewarding, it is also rather taxing.

Taking regular vacations is a good way to ensure that the work doesn't grind you down. Below are five of the best vacation destinations for busy lawyers.

5. Just Go Home

Seriously. If you're really busy and can't find time to spend with your family at home, or enjoy all that worldly splendor you've been working for and amassing, then what's the point? If taking a few days off to stay home just doesn't sit well with you, then consider taking every Friday off for a month over the summer.

4. CLE Conferences

If you like killing birds with stones, a CLE-vacation can take out two or three or even four. Not only will you earn those annoying CLE credits, but you'll also squeeze out a vacation for yourself, and one where you'll probably be able to bill a few hours and network too. Lastly, if you must, or actually want to, you can bring the family along too.

3. The Nearest Major City

Time is always of the essence for some practitioners, so spending a day getting to and from your destination may be too inefficient. Fortunately, every major city in the country, and even some minor ones, have plenty to do, see, and eat. Even if you live in or within a few miles of that major city, committing to spend a few days enjoying it as a tourist can make all the difference.

2. Anywhere With Wifi

If you are too busy to really vacation, then a working vacation is better than no vacation at all. Grab your laptop, smartphone, headset, portable printer, and whatever other gadget you need, and get out there. Just confirm your hotel has wifi, and that the wifi works near the pool, beach, or other feature that will make working on vacation more bearable.

1. Get Off the Grid

While you might struggle to find time to unplug, doing so can pay off in dividends. Trying to "get back to nature," or just connecting with friends and family, or yourself, is one of the best ways to "recharge your batteries."
