Top 10 Ideas for a Great Romantic Getaway


Ready for something really romantic? Here are 10 great ideas to create a getaway with your special person that's extra special.

1. Explore! Go Some Place You've Always Dreamed of Seeing

Is there a place you've always wanted to visit? Instead of heading for the same old destination on your next getaway, go where your dreams lead. Learn more about that place and what awaits you there.

2. Splurge! Book a Top-of-the-Line Hotel

There's a reason the same hotels perennially crop up on best lists: They are better. Their rooms are bigger, prettier, cleaner. Their food is fresher and more carefully prepared. Their staff is friendlier and more helpful; they truly want you to enjoy your visit. Even if you can only go for a night, experience what it's like to love in the lap of luxury.

3. Sail Away! Treat Yourselves to a Cruise

It only takes one cruise to get hooked on the thrill of sailing: The fresh sea air, the diverse ports and activities, the all-inclusive price, the cornucopeia of food, the pleasure of having your own cabin steward to clean your room twice a day. Need I go on? Find out more about what you will love about cruising.

4. Say "I Do" Again! Celebrate a Vow Renewal

If you loved your spouse enough to get and stay married, perhaps it's time to let the world know you'd do it all over again. Many wonderful resorts host vow renewal ceremonies, and staff can help you make the event as personal and formal or informal as you like.

5. Gambol! (and Gamble) on a Las Vegas Getaway

There's no city in the USA that's more fun in Las Vegas. A couple of nights here will revive you, even if you find Vegas so stimulating that you don't sleep a wink!

6. No Kids Allowed! Take a Childfree Vacation

Robert Benchley said it best: "In America, there are two classes of travel: First class, and with children." Go first class.

7. Take it Off! Bare it All at a Nude Beach

From California to St. Martin in the Caribbean to Cap d'Agde in France, couples are taking it off. If you've always wanted to vacation clothesfree, or at least do some nude bathing, plan your romantic getaway around some naked frolicking.

8. Savor a Short One! Enjoy a Weekend Getaway

Go away. But don't go away far. That way, you'll spend less time traveling and more time enjoying yourselves. And you'll be part of a nationwide trend of people who take shorter but more frequent vacations. Find out what they know.

9. Let the Spirit Move You! Go on a Couples Vacation Retreat

Quiet, please, we're on vacation. At a place that's serene and truly peaceful. No ringing phones, no screaming kids, no distracting activities. To nurture mind, body, and spirit, spend your next vacation at a bucolic mountain, desert or island retreat.

10. Show Good Taste! Dine Out in a Fine Restaurant

Feed the fires of desire with an aphrodisiacal meal before an evening of l'amour.
