Everyone needs to get-away now and again. Sure, it’s great spending days at home with the kids…but there are times when you simply need a break, to relax and devote uninterrupted moments to your partner. The following are five ideas for romantic, fun, and inexpensive weekend trips for couples.
Take a Road-trip:
Time spent on the road is the perfect way to reconnect and return to simpler days. Set aside your cell phones and computers and experience the beauty of nature together. Choose a weekend retreat within a few hours of your home, play some tunes, sing, and talk about the things that matter most. Plan a mule ride along a canyon trail, or hike to a campground where you can cuddle up in your tent at night. If your trip is limited to a single day, stop at a winery, pack a picnic, or take a day hike. The possibilities are limitless, and the goal is to enjoy!
Head out to the closest casino. With bright gambling lights surrounding the globe, most couples can head out to a resort without having to travel far. The games and accommodations will differ, depending on the location, but the objective is all about pleasure… and possibly striking it rich! Find some slots and roulette games to play, dress up for a night on the town, enjoy a couple’s message, or recline in your luxurious hotel suite.
Take a Weekend Cruise:
Another great way to enjoy gambling, as well as fine dining, dancing, and the spa life, is to set out on a weekend cruise. Cruising is an awesome way to relax, enjoy great entertainment, shop, swim, and spend valuable hours together. You may find that you love cruising so much that you’ll decide to take the kids along the next time… there are few family adventures as incredible as a Disney Cruise!
Rent a Cabin or a House:
Renting a cabin, apartment, or house for the weekend is a great way to take off and experience the creature comforts of home. Look for a house rental in a great location… a wilderness area, or close to the seashore. Enjoy the morning preparing your own breakfast, curl up by the fireplace at night, watch some DVDs without interruptions, and simply hang out together. You could even find a rental with a Jacuzzi, barbeque pit, and/or a boathouse with a kayak!
Be a Tourist in Your Own Town:
If all this sounds like a little more than you had in mind, why not become a tourist in your own town. Most cities have amazing boutique hotels as well as quant bed-and-breakfasts. In a very short time, you’ll be packed up and checked in. Explore the shops and galleries where you’ve always wanted to linger. Order room service, lounge poolside, and sip cocktails in the lounge. There’s so little stress, and local specials are available. Drink hot cappuccinos at a sidewalk café, browse the bookstores, and enjoy romance away from, yet close to, home.
With so many awesome weekend trips for couples, it’s simply a matter of choosing the get-away that’s right for both you and your sweetheart!
