Millions of families take summer vacations together each year. Travel with the entire family can be a wonderful experience, but there are times when you and your partner need some time alone. A romantic getaway may be just what you need and, fortunately, there are several options to choose from.
The first thing to consider when selecting a romantic summer getaway is what romance means to you. Some feel as if certain activities or settings ruin “the mood.” For this reason, think about what it is you need and what you want to get out of the vacation.
If a beautiful tropical climate is what you are looking for, you might want to examine Barbados more closely. Barbados is an eastern Caribbean island in the Atlantic Ocean and is well-known for its fantastic coastal vacations which are ideal for romantic getaways. Barbados also offers an array of unique shops, entertainment venues and restaurants.
Tahiti is also another possibility. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it is referred to as the “most beautiful island in the world.” This amazing island offers romantic summer vacations unlike any other. With so many romantic resorts from which to choose, restaurants and activities for couples, you will surely have the romantic getaway you need in Tahiti.
The Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania is another popular getaway for couples. Pocono resorts are known for their wintertime activities, but the resorts are open all year. During the off-season, the temperature may not be tropical, but they do offer privacy and a great place to escape to when you need to get away from the daily routines and activities.
Similar to the Pocono resorts, Paris France is not a tropical location but it is considered one of the most romantic places in the world. You will notice the romance as soon as you arrive in the city. In addition to the romantic hotels, you will find many amazing attractions. Many couples reaffirm their love and reconnect at The Eiffel Tower, one of the most popular attractions in the area if not the most popular.
Another option is to go on a romantic cruise. Several popular cruise lines offer ships specifically for couples, and the length of the getaway can vary anywhere from three to ten days, sometimes longer. Onboard, you are likely to find many relaxing, romantic and exciting activities you and your partner can enjoy.
Additionally, cruise ships often dock at several ports and a ship with a romantic theme is more likely to stop at ports with romantic settings. Though it varies by cruise ship, you are often permitted several hours or an entire day to explore the port area. Many couples find this exploration to feel like a separate holiday experience.
