T+L's Sarah Spagnolo presents easy weekend getaways from New York City on the Weather Channel's Wake Up and Go.

1. Litchfield County, Connecticut
This posh enclave is where many of Manhattan’s boldfaced names go to escape the bustle of the city. WHERE TO STAY Falls Village Inn for bright interiors by designer Bunny Williams. Ask for the Green Room: it’s the only guestroom with a bathtub. PRICE $199 a night. BOOK NOW

2. Hawley, Pennsylvania
For an indulgent spa escape near New York City and Philadelphia, head to this serene, wooded destination 2.5-hours northwest of Manhattan. WHERE TO STAY The Lodge at Woodloch was just ranked as one of the top destination spas by Travel + Leisure readers in the annual World’s Best Awards survey. Don’t miss the Rosemary Awakening treatment, complete with a seaweed wrap. PRICE From $289 per person. BOOK NOW

3. Block Island, Rhode Island
This island escape is the furthest afield—travelers from New York take an Amtrak train to a scenic ferry ride—but it's worth it for the casual, off-the-grid vibe. Leave the cars behind: biking is the mode of transportation here. WHERE TO STAY The Victorian-style Hotel Manisses, with 17 rooms furnished with canopy beds. Order the lobster mashed potatoes at the on-site restaurant. PRICE $195 a night. BOOK NOW

And coming up! T+L’s second-annual Global Bazaar, in New York City on September 28-30, 2012. For tickets and details, click here.
