Most couples love to get away and spend some time together. Perhaps you want an escape from the kids for a weekend and long for a morning that you can sleep in together. Maybe you want to put some romance back into your relationship. Whatever your reason for wanting to get away, you are entitled to some quality time together. Many couples can’t seem to find the time or money to travel anyplace exotic. The fact of the matter is, you don’t have to travel far away in order to have some romantic time together.
Many times, a brief escape can be found within a hour of your home. There are lots of hotels, bed and breakfasts or inns that can easily aid in the romance department. Often times, these places will offer romantic packages which only help to spark the romance even more than you’re intending. Some romantic packages offer rooms that have jacuzzis or a more appealing view. Other romantic packages include wine in the rooms, flowers, breakfast in bed and even lavish candlelight dinners. Most of the time, the hotel can create a romantic package for you if you tell them what it is you are looking for. Depending on how much money you are willing to spend for a romantic escape, you can almost make whatever you want happen.
Right after my daughter was born, my husband and I decided that not only were we exhausted, but we missed each other. It had been months since we’d had anything resembling a date and we desperately needed a mini-escape. Even though we wanted and needed to escape, I didn’t want to leave my daughter for more than a few days. I just couldn’t imagine that. So, we found a lavish and fancy hotel about 45 minutes from our house, and inquired about romantic packages. Though rather pricey, the romantic packages were exactly what we were searching for. We reserved a room with a jacuzzi and king sized bed. The romantic package included a gift certificate for $50 towards dinner in the hotel’s very lavish restaurant, massages for each of us, roses and a bottle of champagne. I was incredibly excited about being able to get away, as was my husband.
Though we didn’t really have to leave our county to escape, we were far enough away from our home for a day and night that we could relax and reconnect again. I didn’t want to think about our credit card bill when we got home. I just wanted to relax and enjoy myself. Sometimes, you just have to treat yourself. Finding places that offer romantic packages is an amazing way to do that and reconnect with your loved one.
