Home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford has always been renowned as an intellectual and sophisticated city. Oxford is blanketed in history, but the student population gives it a youthful energy that makes for especially exciting weekends. Stroll down cobbled streets in the city center to find a variety of pubs, teeming with friendly young people escaping the rigors of higher education.

Stop in at Thirsty Meeples, where the food and drink are great but the real draw is the selection of over 2,000 board games to play while you’re there. Or, visit the Radcliffe Camera, a circular library belonging to Oxford University that stands as a symbol of the city itself. For a breath of fresh air, stroll the paths of Oxford University’s Botanic Gardens, where some of the world’s greatest intellectuals have wandered in order to clear their heads.
