Taking a trip with your significant other can be one of the best ways to spend some one-on-one time with your honey and get some rest and relaxation while you’re at it. If you’ve never created a romantic itinerary before, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Here are some easy ways to get started.
Consider a Package
You’re likely to save some bucks—and possibly get some pretty sweet extras—by purchasing a special couple’s bundle. Most hotels and resorts have at least one option that combines accommodations, meals, and romantic touches like spa treatments, cocktails, or even tickets to music or theater performances.
Think Outside of the Box
While rose petals on the bed and bottles of champagne are all lovely, don’t be afraid to get creative with your ideas when it comes to destinations and activities. If you’re an adventurous couple, consider booking an excursion like rock climbing, scuba diving, or a hot air balloon ride. Or, instead of a traditional beach vacation, what about a fun, spontaneous road trip focused around a theme like parks, diners, or roadside attractions?
Integrating at least one element that incorporates one of your partner’s interests, a shared inside joke, or a fond memory you associate with your relationship, like a song, can go a long way toward making a trip especially memorable. From ordering their favorite dessert ahead of time at a restaurant or surprising them with tickets to a concert by their favorite band, it’s truly the thought that counts.
You Don’t Have to Go Far Away
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to fly across the world to have a wonderful time with your sweetie. Why not take an overnight or weekend trip to a quaint B&B or resort in a nearby town that you’ve been wanting to explore? You won’t be as exhausted by all of the stress of air travel and will have more time in your destination to kick back and relax.
