Weekend Getaways for You and Your Husband

Find great ideas on where you can reconnect and relax for your next weekend away.

By: Leticia Barr

A date night out is good — a weekend getaway is even better.

A weekend away helps couples reconnect and rekindle the fire so often forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Long weekends — or even just an overnight stay — present endless possibilities depending on how far you want to travel and your budget, of course, but there are opportunities to see beautiful, amazing things in just two days.

Here are some great places that could be your next getaway.

The Northeast

Bethel, Maine
Home to Sunday River, Bethel is a charming and quaint New England town with great skiing in the winter and scenic vistas perfect for hiking, biking, zipline tours, geocaching adventures, golf, and more during the warm weather months.

New York
The city that never sleeps is a place where you can do as much or as little as you want. Score a hot ticket to one of Broadway’s most popular show or venture off Broadway to find a hidden gem of a performance. Go for a run in Central Park or take a romantic ride through it in a horse drawn carriage.

The Southeast

Orlando, Fla.
Orlando is the kind of place that is just as fun with kids as it is without. Ride junkies won’t have to worry about height restrictions on a weekend away as they enjoy high speed high thrill rides at any of the amusement parks around.

New Orleans
Full of Southern charm and walkable streets in the French Quarter that truly come alive after dark, New Orleans is a vibrant city full of life and home to fantastic food, fun air-boat adventures on the bayou and shopping.
