Romantic Weekend Getaways

Romantic weekend getaways can mean a second honeymoon or a first vacation together. You don't always have the time or money for a long trip, but you can try one of the following ideas this weekend.

Relax Together

Time at a nice hotel is the most obvious and common romantic getaway, and with good reason. It's wonderful to be waited on and to relax in a hot tub together. Find a hotel with a pool, a hot tub (preferably in the room) and even a lounge where you can go dancing.

If you live in or near Michigan, this could be the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. This is where they filmed the romantic Christopher Reed movie, "Somewhere In Time." You'll take the ferry to get there, and there are no cars, so you'll have see the island together by horse carriage.

Outdoor Romantic Weekend Getaways

If you enjoy getting outside, consider a camping weekend. You can really rough it, and put on the backpacks, or just rent an RV and find a beautiful park to visit. It's a great way to have some quality time together. Wherever you may live, there are at least several great outdoor destinations within a couple hours.

An example is the Hot Well Dunes Recreation Area, near Safford Arizona. There are two hot spring pools to soak in, and millions of acres of desert to explore. When my wife and I were there, we loved collecting beautiful rocks during desert hikes, and sitting around the fire with fellow campers each night. The hotsprings were great too.

Doing New Things Together

Isn't it romantic to share new experiences together? Even if things don't go as planned, you're creating common memories that bring you closer together. The occasional minor disaster will be something you laugh about later - a story to tell your friends. Why not try something new this weekend?

Your new thing could be mountain biking in Moab, Utah. If you live near Seattle, you might consider a guided climb up Mount Ranier together, or a hike around the mountain. If you're near the coasts or the Great Lakes, take a charter sailing or fishing trip together. Finally, Amtrak has some great scenic routes you could travel in a weekend.

Can romantic weekend getaways be expensive? Of course, but the only real requirement is that they are romantic. You can find a way to get away no matter what your budget is, so why not start planning now?
