Luxurious Weekend Getaways

On the Road with the Mercedes-Maybach S600

Every time you step into the cabin of the new Mercedes-Maybach S600, it’s as relaxing as a mini-vacation to an exclusive place that only a select few can visit. And when you have a few days to escape the city, enjoy a longer ride in this exceptional new vehicle that makes travel delightful and turns heads at every corner.

Arrive in the All-New 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600

Whether behind the wheel or relaxing in the refined rear cabin, a Mercedes-Maybach S600 owner will experience the epitome of comfort, safety and exclusivity. Debuting this spring, this top-of-the-line luxury vehicle is distinguished by its:

  • Spaciousness: Rear legroom is 8 inches longer than in a standard Mercedes-Benz S-Class
  • Opulence: High-end design includes hand-stitched Nappa leather seats and individualized style options such as a refrigerator box, folding tables and champagne flutes
  • Acoustic brilliance: Burmester® high-end 3D surround sound system
  • Peacefulness: The Mercedes-Maybach S600 is world's quietest sedan in production.

New York City to the Hamptons

Instead of helicoptering to the tip of Long Island, head for the Hamptons in true comfort and commanding style. New hotels, boutiques and restaurants have emerged to give long-time residents and visiting VIPs fresh opportunities to see and be seen. With events that include the Southampton Antique Fair, the Midsummer Party at the Parrish Art Museum, the Hampton Classic Horse Show and the Hamptons International Film Festival, it’s going to be a memorable season.

Washington, DC to Virginia

Oenophiles can lean back and sip chilled Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc while their driver traverses Virginia’s wine country (cooled cup holders are optional in the Mercedes-Maybach S600). There are more than 250 wineries in the commonwealth’s rolling hills and in addition to hosting tasting facilities, a number welcome guests at elegant inns. History lovers who venture further south to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello can hire a private guide there to receive the ultimate insider’s experience: a tour specifically tailored to your interests.

Miami to Key West

One of America’s most scenic roadways, the Overseas Highway stretches 127.5 miles from Key Largo to Key West. Also known as US Route 1, it consists of 42 bridges over turquoise waters that connect the islands that comprise the archipelago. It’s not uncommon to spot dolphins at play and manatees in shallow water as you motor past. At land’s end, top resorts combine Old World elegance with Key West’s Dionysian vibe. Unwind at the spa or swimming pool or venture to the beach and warm waters for world-class deep-sea fishing, scuba diving and parasailing.

Chicago to Wisconsin

It’s fewer than 150 miles from the Windy City on I-94 and lakeshore-hugging

I-43 to the Midwest’s most luxurious resort and spa. An hour north of Milwaukee, Destination Kohler is home to The American Club resort, Kohler Waters Spa and top-rated Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits PGA golf courses. Nearby River Wildlife is an 800-acre refuge with hiking trails and a seven-mile stretch of the Sheboygan River that may entice you to grab a paddle, climb into a canoe and luxuriate in the fresh air and natural beauty.

Denver to Vail

A hundred miles west along I-70 and nearly 3,000 feet loftier, Vail has become a year-round mountain retreat for those who live the good life. Ski season over, the golfing crowd tees off at challenging courses with stunning views. In spa sanctuaries, massages target and soothe specific areas. Visitors also unwind by shopping in Vail Village, where stores offer private fittings. And don’t be surprised if parking valets at top restaurants in this tony town display your car in a prominent spot to impress other customers.

Los Angeles to Palm Springs

A straight shot east on I-10, Palm Springs provides Angelenos with sunshine and serenity. This desert oasis appeals to travelers who revel in sun, swimming, spa treatments and shopping. Named one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations for its wealth of Mid-Century Modern Architecture, Palm Springs’ unique Desert Modernism aesthetic reveals itself on a mapped driving tour. Although several new hotels have opened recently, choose one that maintains its Old Hollywood glamour, schedule a massage and then sidle into a private cabana beside a sparkling pool.
