Best Couple Trips to Book In 2019
Having a built-in travel buddy is one of the best parts of being married! Not always a cinch to get away from kids, bills, and work, however it can make a significant difference in your relationship. Helpful to reconnect, decompress and enjoy each other. Vacationing together can remind you of the glorious time you had with your partner pre poopy diapers, sleepless nights and gray hair.
Here are some of the best couple trips for 2019!
Road trippin on a budget:
Lake Charles, Louisiana – 4.5 hour drive from Austin, Lake Charles features casinos, pools, spas, concerts and golfing. With so many activities at the resorts you could spend most of your time there, or you could check out the adventurous swamp tours in the nearby areas.
La Cantera Hill Country Resort: San Antonio, Texas – this 550-acre estate completed a multi-million dollar renovation which includes a luxurious pool with cabanas [by reservation], golf and nine dining options on the property. Breathtaking views of the Hill Country and less than 30 minutes from the River Walk & Alamo, you will get a taste of both the country and city!
Get out your passport:
Punta Mita, Mexico – a luxury golf, spa and resort area within Mexico. Many of these resorts have private beaches so you can enjoy your peace and quiet at your cabana. Known for being a fishing town, chartered fishing boats are a fun excursion to check out. Punta Mita is known for fine dining restaurants, high end spas, and luxurious hotels. A personal favorite is the St. Regis Resort which includes butler service, outdoor showers and a bungalow style room, full relaxation mode begins immediately.
Lake Louise: Alberta, Canada – Whether you decide to visit in winter or summer, be prepared for natural and undisturbed beauty located within Banff National Park. Winter months provide opportunities for dogsledding, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing and horse drawn carriage rides. During the summer months you can enjoy fishing, hiking, horseback riding and canoeing on the turquoise picturesque lake. So many activities at this gorgeous destination.
Sunglasses and Sunshine:
Hawaiian Islands – who doesn’t love sunshine, fresh pineapple, mai tais and swimming in the warm ocean that surround the islands. With multiple islands to choose from, Maui is my suggestion for couples who are looking for gorgeous beaches and easy access to things like shopping, dining, water sports and hotels. Hawaii (The Big Island) for couples who are interested in exploring various terrains such as rock beaches, snorkeling and an emptier island. Kauai has lots of rain so be prepared, however the lush vegetation and hiking is unmatched.
Miami, Florida – looking for a vibrant city with tons of fabulous dining and a fun nightlife, Miami checks all the boxes. Spend the days with your partner relaxing on beaches, exploring the Art Deco district and making reservations at some of the best restaurants in the country. The people in this city are friendly and you can stroll the city streets as there is always some sort of fun gathering.
Park City, Utah – skiing the fresh powder slopes and enjoying a hot toddy cuddled by the fire together is magic! Nothing screams a more cozy and romantic day. Park City provides various ski resorts to explore, the cutest downtown for dining and great wildlife. Make sure to check out the Veuve Clicquot Apres Lounge located at The Montage for a unique experience of bubbles on the slope or the outdoor fire pits and smores located at St. Regis Deer Valley.
Jacksonhole, Wyoming – With the neighboring Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park and the National Elk Refuge, this is the destination for outdoorsy lovers. Jackson Hole Town Square is full of shops, galleries and dining.
Special Occasion Destinations:
Greece – Visit Athens as a way of exploring old ancient architecture, fly over to Santorini to see the beaches and volcanoes or take a boat over to Mykonos to relax on the beaches during the day and enjoy the crazy nightlife. The striking blue and white architecture provides photo ops at every turn. Enjoy the most authentic Greek salad and baklava with your mate!
Fiji – The people, the culture and the water make this 14-hour flight worth it! You truly are on island time here with no responsibilities, very little wifi and lots of time to reconnect with your spouse. I honeymooned here on a private island and it was glorious, perfect for a big anniversary or birthday with your babe!
Be present in the moment together, reconnect and remember the times before the chaos!
