How To Plan A Romantic Getaway For Your Anniversary

Remember when you were planning your wedding and your honeymoon? At that time, you probably didn't realize how busy your lives would become after the newness of being married kicked in. Whether you have been married a year or many years, you are probably very ready to plan a romantic getaway for your anniversary. If so, here are some ideas that might help you to plan something memorable and enjoyable.

Set A Date For Your Getaway - Of course, planning your honeymoon re-do right for the day of your anniversary would be ideal. However, real life doesn't always cooperate, does it? Rather than being stressed out by focusing on the actual date, focus on a time when you can leave business, school meetings and other obligations behind. Have a meeting where both of you can agree on a date and then actually write it down on your calendar. In fact, it won't hurt a bit to have each of you initial the scheduled getaway so that later on one of you won't claim that it just isn't a good time to leave your home grounds.

Combine Fun With Relaxation - After you have determined the dates you can be away from home, plan where you'll go. Of course, endless hours and endless money would allow you to take a world cruise or to take a picture-taking safari in Africa. However, if the reality dictates that you have to simplify, remember that there are wonderful opportunities for fun and relaxation right in the United States.

  • Have you ever been to a Texas beach? Those are a well-kept secret that offer swimming, shell collecting, shopping and visiting places like The Texas Aquarium in Corpus Christi.
  • Going to a desert resort would offer things like horse back riding, tennis, and massages. You haven't seen nature at its most dramatic way until you have seen the desert sunsets and sunrises. Seeing The Mystery Castle will totally fascinate you.
  • Have you ever heard of the River's Edge Suite in Ohio? If you go there you'll feel like you've stepped back in time. The rooms are charming and are a great place to read and relax. Then, when you're ready for some adventure, you can go into town to shop in quaint stores, visit museums, and eat in great restaurants.
