Weekend and Getaway are two of the most favourite words of Mumbaikars. Mumbai, being the heart of this country, has great choices to offer when it comes to weekend-ing. Aye Captain, you can unwind yourself on a sailing trip into the vast sea and go to Alibaug to beach it out. If you're the playful kind, then the outskirts of Mumbai have some of the most excellent adventure parks like Essel World, Della Adventures and Imagica, which add thrill to the weekend. 

This city has some green cover too, which offers a fantastic retreat for nature enthusiasts. Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Maharashtra Nature Park, and Aarey forest are some of the sites that will take you to nature's paradise amidst the concrete jungle. 

If you are looking for a getaway that involves peace and spiritual enlightenment, then Global Vipassana Pagoda is the perfect retreat for you. Mumbai has a lot of forts that are open to exploring. However, they are in ruins now, but they ought to be the coolest sites to dig into Mumbai's varied and rich history. Families can have a full day picnic from Gateway of India to the Elephanta Islands which beholds the spectacular caves that are a UNESCO world heritage site.
