It can be tough to keep the love aflame in the oh-so busy world of today. After arriving home dead tired from a hard day’s work, you and your beloved would want nothing more than to sit down on the couch and cuddle while watching whatever’s on the TV before finally crashing to bed. Luckily, that’s why we have the weekend, the time where you can finally give each other the attention you both deserve and blow off some steam. And what better way to spend a romantic weekend than to go on a nice, relaxing trip with your honey? If you’re in need of an inspiration of some perfect couple’s weekend getaway ideas, you are in luck.
Here are some attractive and unique weekend destinations for couples that will completely win you over.
1) New Orleans, LA – There is a reason why New Orleans is called The Big Easy – the entire city lives at a stroller’s pace and that is just what the two of you need. This bohemian city oozes with a relaxing atmosphere that will soothe the soul and rest the mind, which is exactly why it’s so romantic and the perfect getaway for every free spirited couple. Take long, relaxing walks in this exotic paradise, take a cruise down the Mississippi river, enjoy a romantic carriage ride for two around town, have a candlelight dinner with a bottle of their finest wine, and to conclude the night, go to a spicy jazz concert that will bring your bodies closer and your passions aflame.
2) Aspen, CO – The mountains, the snow, the cabins, the fireplace crackling… Can you imagine a scene more romantic than this? Aspen is the perfect retreat from everyday life and will charge your batteries while dazzling you with its beauties. If you’re going in the summer, you can take mild hikes or bike rides and enjoy the nature alone or you can stroll around town and have a romantic lunch. For winter activities, you can finally go and take up on skiing for an exciting bonding experience.
3) Niagara Falls, NY – Stand together mere feet from one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the entire region and watch as the water droplets explode into a million colors when reflected from the sun – if that doesn’t shout romance, then I don’t know what does. Niagara Falls offer everything a couple would desire – the peace and serenity to devote to each other, the breathtaking nature scenery you can take in together, and tons of activities you can do for an exhilirating time together. Whether you just want to take moonlight strolls beside the falls or take on adrenaline-inducing rafting rides, Niagara is the place to go.
4) Monterey, CA – As you’re walking barefoot down the beach hand in hand, the Pacific Ocean sings its song and you feel like you’re never been closer. What’s best about Monterey is that it’s full of beautiful, deserted beaches you can enjoy all for yourselves when looking for that sweet solace. There is no price one can pay for that. When you’re not enjoying the peace and quiet of the sea, you can take horseback rides with your beloved or have a romantic picnic at Marina Dunes Natural Preserve while watching the beautiful sunset, which is romance in itself.
If you feel that these destinations are too far for you to go for just the three days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), you can take a long weekend for this trip. Pack your bags, take each other’s hands and give yourselves the nice romantic treat you both deserve.
