20 Dec Love is in the Air: The Best Winter Vacations for Couples
The Best Winter Vacations for Couples of Every Kind
Romance doesn’t go cold just because the weather does. What better way to celebrate love this winter than to take your special someone somewhere special? Of course, where you want to go depends on what type of couple you are. We know every couple is unique, but these categories give you a good place to start your vacation planning, whether you’re planning your honeymoon or just looking to spend some quality time together. Below are the following best winter vacations for couples (in our opinion!):
The Chic Couple
Most of the destinations on our list are romantic winter getaways that take couples far from the cold. However, we believe the dazzling lights of New York City are perfect for the couple looking for stylish and elegant romance this winter. Sip hot chocolate and walk hand in hand through Times Square, or go skating together in Central Park. See a show on Broadway, or for more seductive—and slightly scandalous—entertainment, head to the Slipper Room for an acrobatic burlesque performance. For a romantic dinner, head to One if by Land, Two if by Sea for a truly decadent experience, or Amelie, for less expensive but still very romantic fare.
The Cool Couple
Nashville’s temperatures stay mostly in the 40s and 50s this time of year, making it comfortably cool but not cold enough for a winter coat. Nicknamed Music City, Nashville is an excellent destination for the hip couple who likes to spend time in the music scene. Whether you prefer well-known artists, up-and-coming undiscovered bands, or a mix of both, you and your partner are sure to find something to listen to together. Also be sure to check out the First Saturday Art Crawl if you can, which is when the art galleries in the city open for the first Saturday of each month from 6-9pm to showcase multitudes of local, contemporary artwork. Wine and light snacks are provided for you and your significant other to enjoy while you exchange thoughts on the eclectic visuals around you. Nashville is one of the best winter vacations for couples because there’s no shortage of new sounds and visuals to keep you occupied and give you something to talk about.
The Laid Back Couple
There’s no better place for a laid back couple than the beach, where you can simply lay beneath the sun in each other’s company or hold hands on a seaside walk. Cabo San Lucas offers perfect romantic winter getaways for the easy-going couple looking for beachside bliss. Unlike many tropical locations this time of year, Cabo San Lucas is not undergoing its rainy season. For the best margaritas in Cabo San Lucas, take a trip to the 5-star Monkey Business Bar, or enjoy beachfront dining at Hacienda at Medano Beach. Cabo San Lucas is also home to The Spa at Esperanza. In addition to being ranked as the best spa in Latin America, The Spa at Esperanza offers many couples’ treatments. Thus, Cabo San Lucas stands out as a great destination for any couple to kick back and relax, as well as one of the best winter honeymoon destinations.
The Adventurous Couple
There’s nothing like the excitement of stepping out of your comfort zone, except doing so with someone you love. Whether you’re looking for the best winter honeymoon destinations for an intense couple like yourselves or just a casual week of thrills together, Sydney, Australia, is a great choice for you. The weather is comfortable, with highs in the high 70s to low 8-s and lows in the 60s, and much less rain than at other times of the year. Nowhere else will you find the oldest open cave system in the world—Jenolan Caves. Descend into the shadowed crevices of this geological wonder with your sweetheart and admire the eerie beauty of its stalactites and stalagmites. If you’re looking to conquer your fear of heights or you and your partner are simply fearless, head to North Wollongong Beach for some serious skydiving. This incredible skydiving location even makes it possible to see migrating whales and other marine life from the air! It’s an unforgettable experience for a couple to share.
Don’t Let Resort Prices Kill the Romance
On first glance, it can seem like you have three options when it comes to where you stay on vacation—an expensive, luxurious resort, an average hotel at an okay price, or a cheap hostel. However, there’s a fourth option. Educating yourself about Resort Rentals makes it possible to rent high-quality resort accommodations at a low, affordable price to fit any budget.
