How to Plan the Most Romantic Weekend Getaway

How to Plan the Most Romantic Weekend Getaway

There’s nothing like taking some time to get away for a weekend with the love of your life where you can take a deep breath away from your daily routine and focus solely on the two of you.

However, there are ways to make your romantic getaway even more romantic—here’s how!

Couple Kissing by the WaterStay away from the crowds

Planning your getaway to a tourist-heavy area where you constantly bump elbows with other guests and have to push through crowds doesn’t sound very romantic.

Instead, choose a cozy destination that affords you plenty of privacy and one-on-one time. If traveling in a popular area, find attractions to visit at obscure times or plan a trip to a destination off the beaten path and avoid run-ins with overcrowded spots.

Plan a non-tropical getaway

Yes, tropical getaways can be very romantic, but going somewhere with colder weather offers plenty of opportunity for romance. Picture yourself snuggling up under a blanket with your sweetheart in a comfortable room for two.

The heat often pushes us away from each other, while the cold pulls us together for warmth. Going somewhere with varied weather also gives you the opportunity to try out different types of seasonal activities.

Book an intimate space

Back away from the popular hotel rooms and opt instead for a comfy bed and breakfast where privacy and romance meet. There is nothing like having a room all to yourself where you can’t hear other guests and do not have to fight for parking every day.

Bed and breakfasts provide relaxing, homey spaces where you can unwind and relax with your love instead of feeling stressed out by overcrowded hotels. These cozy places often include special features like Jacuzzis and include decorations to make them feel more like home, creating a comfortable and tranquil vibe.
