    We live for the weekend. So, we're sharing the epic destinations that fill up our 48 hours of uninterrupted freedom in this new series, On The Loose. Get inspired, and then show us your own #Epic48 weekend snaps on Instagram.

    New York may be the best city in the world, but even the most hardcore urbanite needs an escape once in a while. Though we may have the beauty of the Chrysler Building and the glitz of Broadway, we also have tons of slow-walking tourists who haven’t figured out the whole “left side is for people in a hurry who have to get to freaking work right now” thing. The solution to crowd fatigue? Get out of town — preferably to a place that doesn't just offer peace and quiet but also crazy-fun adventures and experiences.

    And, we’ve got just the place — nine, in fact! Thanks to Secret’s Scent Expressions and Destinations Collection, we’re bringing you nine of the prettiest, coolest hideaways you haven’t heard of — all on the outskirts of our lovely Gotham City. Plan your getaway now before the crowds follow.
