Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Still looking to get away this weekend? You don’t have to spend a fortune to book a last-minute getaway. These five deals, from a luxury resort in the Pacific Northwest to a dude ranch in the Southwest, will let you enjoy your last bit of summer.

Pronghorn, an Auberge Resort, OR

Set in the high plains of central Oregon, Pronghorn is the latest addition to Auberge Resort’s luxurious properties. Its two award-winning golf courses and access to some of the country’s best hiking, biking, fishing, and rafting makes it an incredible all-season destination and a top choice for outdoor enthusiasts.

The Deal: Pronghorn Adventures Package
The package includes three nights in a Junior Suite, complimentary transportation to/from the airport, and a choice of any two outdoor adventures (for two people), including golf on the award-winning Nicklaus Course, rafting on the Deschutes River, a microbrew and craft beer tour, a guided half-day mountain biking tour, a spelunking lava cave tour, a Brews & Views canoe tour, or standup paddleboarding on the Deschutes River. Doubles from $199 per night.

Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, Rancho Mirage, CA

This newly re-imagined 444-room resort’s new offerings include stylish new guest rooms, the signature bluEmber restaurant, the R Bar lounge, and Splashtopia, an exciting water playground complete with water slides, lazy river, and a sandy beach. The resort also features a 20,000-square-foot spa, a 27-hole Ted Robinson–designed golf course, a 25-court Peter Burwash International tennis center, and four pools.

The Deal: The Family Summer Getaway
Good through September 3, the package includes accommodations, a Summer Passport with more than $500 in extra value, two Splashtopia inner tubes (which you can keep), a $50 breakfast credit to bluEmber or Palms Café, and a $28 daily resort charge. An added Labor Day perk includes the all-new “Picnic & Movie on the Fairway” program, with dinners for four from the Palms Café and a golf cart rental to catch a movie on the green, drive-in style. Rates from $179 per night.

Viceroy Palm Springs, Palm Springs, CA

Designed as an ode to Palm Springs in its Golden Age, when celebrities like Humphrey Bogart visited, this Hollywood Regency-style hotel underwent a full renovation in 2003. The 67 guest rooms are decorated in black, white, and yellow, and include Italian designer linens and bath products by Aromatherapy Associates. There are varied services available at Estrella Spa and three outdoor heated pools. As a fun perk, the hotel provides bicycles with attached mobile phones that connect directly to the concierge.

The Deal: The Twilight Romance Package
In addition to accommodations, this romantic package includes a 30-minute spa service for couples under the stars in a private al fresco spa cabana between 9 p.m. and midnight and a complimentary bottle of Moet Ice, followed by breakfast for two. Doubles from $200 per night.

Tanque Verde Ranch, Tucson, AZ

This is a great family getaway before the kids go back to school. The surrounding Sonoran Desert landscape, strewn with saguaro and prickly pear cacti, is a world away from your typical Rocky Mountain ranch, but horseback riding reigns equally supreme. Other activities include guided mountain bike and hiking tours, nature walks, fishing lessons, and cookouts under the stars. Children ages 4–12 can enjoy horse grooming, riding lessons, and arts and crafts.

The Deal: All-Inclusive Stays
Over Labor Day weekend, get 30 percent off regular all-inclusive rates, which include accommodations, three daily meals, and free access to the entire list of ranch activities listed above, including the kids program. Resort rates from $175 per person, per night.

Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Kiawah Island, SC

Located on a beautiful barrier island just a few miles from historic Charleston, these 500 vacation villas share the same amenities as the Sanctuary Hotel. During the day, take part in a variety of activities including kayaking, nature tours, and bicycling. At night, enjoy the outstanding dining options.

The Deal: Labor Day Weekend Beach and Breakfast Package
From August 28 to September 3, book this deal and get daily breakfast for two and a one-bedroom deluxe villa, just a short walk from the beach with full kitchen and screened-in porch. Doubles from $175 per night (two-night minimum), plus tax and resort fee.

Berlin's Quirky (and Affordable) Huettenpalast Hotel

Huettenpalast Hotel, Berlin

Sometimes when you live checking in and out of hotel rooms, it can all become a blur, so when you stumble upon one that not only offers something innovative and fun, but also stays with you long after you leave, you take note. During a recent backpacking trip through Europe I checked into a quirky Berlin stay called Huettenpalast Hotel (Hobrechtstrasse 66; 49-030/3730-5806; from $59 per night). Those looking for something completely different and charming will definitely find it here as the place can only be described as an indoor campsite. Six wooden cabins and vintage caravans just large enough to fit a double bed are scattered inside an old vacuum cleaner factory for a "room within a room" experience. The sunny campsite contains various seating options, shared bathrooms and showers (don't worry, they're incredibly clean), and a center dining area where little baggies of croissants, apples, and drinks are hung on a painted tree for breakfast each morning.

If you’re lucky enough to live in New York City—or happen to be visiting between July 16 and August 10, 2012—there’s an extra reason to dine around town: NYC Restaurant Week. Those who want to experience some of Gotham’s most popular restaurants at deeply discounted prices ($24 lunch; $35 dinner) have an opportunity to save even more on fondue and gougère at Artisanal Fromagerie, smoked brisket at Hill Country, and Harold Dieterle’s Thai creations at Kin Shop.

In celebration of 20 delicious years of Restaurant Week (which has actually grown to three weeks), American Express is working with the City of New York and social media phenom Foursquare to make dining out even more attractive. (As if we needed an excuse!) When you sync your American Express card with Foursquare and check into participating restaurants, you will automatically get an additional $5 off the bill of $24 or more. For details and to register, go to sync.americanexpress.com/foursquare. Bon appetite!

NYC Rings in 2012 Gay Pride with Fab Hotel Deals

201206-b-w-hotel-pride-dealsjpg

It’s June and that means it’s LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Pride Month. Parades have been marching every weekend in cities and towns across the country. (For those who aren’t familiar: June was the chosen month as a nod to the Stonewall riots, regarded by most as the start of the Gay Rights movement.) This upcoming Sunday, the streets of NYC’s West Village will be lined with thousands of supporters, many from outside the city…and they’re going to need a place to crash. Lucky for them, lots of hotels are offering up great deals to show their support.
