Top Tips For Planning The Ultimate Romantic Weekend

It may not be possible to travel as much as we’d like at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend quality time with loved ones. If you’re eager to get away without straying too far, and you want to plan a romantic weekend, here are some top tips to plan a getaway to remember.

Choosing the right location

There are several factors to consider when choosing a location for a weekend away. Consider how you want to spend your time, what you want to see and do, how far you want to travel and how much you want to spend. If you’re limited in terms of time, it’s best to avoid going too far and opt for a location that is easy to reach. Use your interests to narrow down the options. If you love to be adventurous and explore the great outdoors as a couple, you could look into places to stay in the mountains, go skiing or camp out under the stars close to a national park, for example. Use the Internet to research destinations, find out more about activities and attractions and get some quotes for transport and accommodation. 


Exploring accommodation options

If you’re planning a romantic weekend, it’s natural to want to find a special place to stay. Whether you are celebrating tying the knot, or you want to treat your partner because you’ve not had much time together recently, there is a huge range of options to consider. From luxury honeymoon suites in Indiana and 5-star hotels in Miami or New York to quirky places to stay such as ranches, log cabins, treehouses and spa resorts tucked away in secluded coves, you can find a host of places online. Use social media and travel blogs and articles to gather ideas, check prices and look for something that your partner will love. Some people would love to go all-out and indulge in the finer things in life in the heart of a big city, while others may prefer to get away from it all and enjoy views of mountains, lakes, forests or rolling ocean waves. 


Getting from A to B in style

Traveling around can be stressful, especially if you’re in the city or you’re trying to reach a far-flung destination. If you’re planning the ultimate romantic break for your partner, it’s an excellent idea to plan how you’re going to get from A to B. This will help to eliminate stress and it can also elevate your experience. You could book taxis in advance, hire a sports car, organize private transfers or even plan a helicopter or hot air balloon tour. 


Extra touches

If you want to go above and beyond to make your weekend memorable, there are lots of little extras and personal touches you can add to spoil your partner and make the most of your time. From spa treatments and chocolates and rose petals in the bedroom for your arrival to private dining with a view, it’s an excellent idea to contact the hotel or resort where you’re staying in advance to see how you can make the trip extra special.
