Life can get really hectic, between keeping on top of your job, making sure the laundry is done, trying to drink enough water every day, getting a workout in every once in a while, and trying to see your friends, things really can get very crazy.
Sometimes, you might be living with your partner and feel like you haven’t seen them in weeks. When that starts to happen, it’s the perfect time for a romantic getaway. Here are the perfect spots to head to for a weekend for just the two of you.
Havana is a beautiful city that truly feels like it’s been tucked away in a time capsule. This colorful and vibrant city has so much to offer with its streets full of musicians, performers, and dancing. Make sure to try the “guarapo” sugarcane juice and take a spin around town in a vintage taxi to feel like you’ve traveled back in time. You can even head to the beach for a perfect weekend away together.
Catalina Island, California
Speaking of beaches, it’s really hard to compete with California. A short hour ride away from Long Beach and Orange County, Catalina Island is a beautiful area to get away to. Go for a glass-bottom boat ride, go zip lining if you’re adventurous, or relax with a drink at Descanso beach.
Vancouver, British Columbia
Vancouver is truly a cosmopolitan city that has got it all, plus some. If you love spending time in cities but also love being outdoors, this is the destination for you. Rent bikes and cruise down the Stanley Park seawall, walk across the Capilano suspension bridge for breathtaking sights, and enjoy the delicious culinary offerings from all of the different ethnicities represented in this beautiful city.
There’s a wonderful reason why Austin’s motto is “Keep Austin Weird.” This quirky city has so many fun features ranging from classic movie theaters to off-beat boutiques. Best of all, Austin is a food lover’s paradise, with a huge variety of offerings and some of the best BBQ around, of course. There are also plenty of options for outdoor activities including kayaking, paddle-boarding, or swimming in the local natural pools like Barton Springs Pool.
Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston is often overlooked, and it’s a huge shame. If you’ve ever wanted to feel like you’ve walked right into the pages of a Nicholas Sparks novel, Charleston is it. Take romantic strolls through the beautiful neighborhoods with the picturesque homes lined with cobblestone streets. Make to enjoy some of the famous southern food and hospitality South Carolina is known for, like chicken and waffles, delicious sweet tea, and southern brunch.
