Ask any relationship counselor, and they’ll tell you spending time together is a vital part of any relationship. But finding that time in can be incredibly difficult when you’re juggling work, social and family obligations. If your once-a-month date night just isn’t cutting it anymore, then it’s time to shirk a few responsibilities and really spend some time together. That load of dirty laundry and the electric bill will still be waiting for you when you get back, but at least you’ll feel fresh and re-energized!
If you and your lover are thinking about a romantic get-away, here are a few places you’re both sure to love!
1. The Beach
Nothing says romantic get-away like the beach. It’s even more special if you pick a quiet time of the year, like late fall or early spring when it’s less crowded. You can still enjoy the beautiful views, and the cooler nights just give you a reason to cuddle closer with your sweetheart. If the ocean’s a little too cold for swimming, just make sure your hotel has a heated pool or a nice hot tub! Besides, your romantic getaway is about spending time together. And if it goes really well, you might not make it out of your hotel room!
2. The Mountains
If you don’t live near the beach, then the mountains make a great substitute. There are few things more romantic than sitting in front of a roaring fire while watching snow fall outside. Even if it’s not snowing, you can spend the day enjoying the outdoors together. If you’re both feeling adventurous, you might even discover a secluded meadow along the way that’s perfect for an afternoon tryst!
3. A Romantic Bed & Breakfast
Why spend lots of time and effort planning a romantic weekend, when you have everything done for you? There are tons of beds and breakfasts out there with special “romantic weekend” packages designed for couples. These packages could include everything from champagne and flowers to breakfast in bed as well as all other kinds of fun activities. While the small, intimate scale of a B&B adds to the romantic allure, there are plenty of large hotels that offer similar packages as well.
4. The Big City
If you’re looking to add some adventure to your romantic weekend, try planning a visit to a large city nearby. Large cities like New York, Chicago and L.A. offer all kinds of activities that you can’t find back at home. You could take a romantic carriage ride through Central Park, a late-night spin on the Centennial Wheel at Navy Pier, or even a hot air balloon ride over the Hollywood Sign. These cities have a special mystique and energy to them, especially if it’s your first visit. And that energy translates to the bedroom to make your romantic get-away even more fun!
5. Stay At Home
If you don’t the time or money for a trip, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a romantic day or two without leaving home. Just make sure that you don’t have any of the usual distractions. That means packing up the kids and sending them to a relative’s or a friend’s house. It means doing all the typical household chores and paying the bills ahead of time. And it means turning your phones off and ignoring anyone knocking on your doorbell so you can focus on each other instead of the typical laundry list of problems and concerns.
