Romantic Getaways

That first year or two after marriage is a lot of fun, but let’s face it, it is also a lot of work. Between setting up the home, getting into a different routine, and just getting used to living with someone you are not used to living with, marriage can be an adjustment. If you are like most couples, taking advantage of romantic getaways is a great way to relax and reignite the love! Whether you interpret romantic getaways as a few hour drive, or a short flight a few states away, we have some tips on how to travel.

Affordable Romantic Getaways

Finding the perfect vacation spot for you and your spouse will depend on a few things. It may seem like a fun idea to just go somewhere without budgeting or planning, but if you plan to go somewhere far or somewhere that costs a good deal of money, your relaxing vacation will very quickly turn into a stressful nightmare as soon as you get back. If you must go on a whim (which, let’s face it, is really fun), then do something nearby. Using services like Groupon, allows vacationers to find fun activities and romantic restaurants and hotels for less expensive prices.

However, if you need airline tickets and can plan a few months ahead of time, you are more likely to save a good deal of dough. Maybe you are anticipating a stressful month of work. Having ideas for romantic getaways will be the perfect incentive to be on your game: you can see a light at the end of the tunnel. Luckily, each flight through airlines such as Southwest, offer different seats, including a “Wanna Get Away” deal, where prices are less expensive than other options.
