A trip to the urban metropolis of Mumbai, the focal point of Indian financial and industrial enterprise, remains incomplete without a stopover at the nearby picturesque places. There are several Mumbai getaways that are swarming with tourists all through the year. Most of the popular Mumbai getaways can be reached within the span of a day. Blessed in terms of topographical diversity Maharashtra is home to several mesmerizing hill stations and towns.

In order to break out of the humdrum of every day life and introduce a splash of excitement, tourists can go for a short trip to Pune, an idyllic blend of urban life and charming scenery. One of the most popular Mumbai getaways Pune houses the The Lal Devai synagogue, pretty as a picture, Bund Gardens, the Osho International Commune and the ornate and majestic Aga Khan Palace. Pune is also home to several stately university buildings and innumerable cavernous caves, cascading waterfalls, well manicured gardens and sylvan lakes.

Apart from Pune, the quixotic, picturesque hill station, Mahabaleswar is an ideal weekend retreat for nature lovers. It is one of the famous getaways from Mumbai. Nestled among jungle-clad hills and laced by the rippling cascades of beautiful waterfalls sightseers opt for Mahabaleswer as a quick weekend getaway from Mumbai. Aficionados of the charming hill resort keep returning to the Arthur's Seat, the Krishnabai Temple, Connaught Peak, Kate's Point, Venna Lake, Pratapgad Fort and the Lingmala, Chinaman and Dhobi Waterfalls.

The exquisite twin hill stations of Lonavla and Khandala, widely popularized by Bollywood films are also a rage among tourists. Apart from the panorama of the hills sprawling over the Deccan Plateau and adorning the Konkan coastline, the Rajmachi Point, Tungarli and Lonavla Lake, Valvan Dam, Duke's Nose, Tiger's Leap, Lohagad Fort and Bhushi Dam are also popular sightseeing destinations around Lonavla and Khandala.

The cherry on the cake is that Mumbai shares great road and rail connectivity to all the above mentioned destinations. Lonavala and Khandala are situated at a distance of about 70 - 80 kms, Mahabaleshwar 220kms and Pune 180 kms. Buses ply on a daily basis from Mumbai and are the most preferred medium of traveling.
