10 Romantic Weekend Ideas
Unwind with these weekend activities.
1. Camping for two
Pick a local nature reserve and grab your tent for a romantic outdoor weekend. Forget your watch and rely on nature to set your internal clocks. Take frequent naps, watch the stars, and make a romantic fireside meal for a memorable escape.
3. Overnight boat trip
From the Mississippi River to coastal waters, book an overnight trip aboard a chartered boat. Enjoy the calm waters, candlelit dinners, and escape from the ordinary.
4. Drive-in movie date
With drive-in movie theaters reappearing around the country, an outdoor movie viewing is the perfect way to spend an evening. Make it a retro evening and visit a retro-themed diner before the movie. Be sure to make it home by curfew!
6. Spa vacation
Give one another the gift of relaxation and book a couple’s massage at your favorite spa. Book a flight to a famous oasis or indulge in one close to home.
Send the kids to Grandma’s house and book a staycation at your home. Unplug all electronic devices — no television, no radio, no computers, no alarm clocks, and definitely no cell phones. Sleep in, have breakfast in bed, do the crossword puzzle, and enjoy the luxury of having nothing to do.
9. Sunset picnic
Before the sun sets, pack a romantic dinner with wine, fresh fruit, cheese, and dessert. Head to the backyard or a local park for a magical evening to connect and enjoy nature.
