12 Sep Top 3 Destinations for Kid-Free Vacations
Kid-Free is Occasionally the Way to Be
We love our kids. There is no denying that, even for a second. But sometimes, adult-only time is very much needed, and very much important to our sanity. And now that the kids are back in school and you have a minute to breathe, it’s time to start thinking about kid-free vacations to enjoy some well deserved rest and relaxation with your significant other.
Some travel destinations tend to be more overrun with kids than others, so we’ve narrowed down the top three destinations for kid-free vacations that offer plenty of fun things for you to do while you get a much needed break!
Big Sur, California
If you’re interested in a beach vacation without all the screaming toddlers and crowds of teenagers, you should consider Big Sur. The area is home to a number of adult-friendly beaches such as Pfeiffer Beach. It’s considered one of the most amazing beaches in the world. However the high winds and narrow roads usually keep families from bringing the little ones.
The Big Sur is also a great spot for relaxation and indulging, with its many spas and wineries. Be sure to spend an afternoon sampling vino and enjoying breathtaking views at Mesa del Sol, Hahn Estates, or Paraiso Vineyards. Then treat you and your spouse to a high-end couples massage at Spa Alila.
If you’re looking for a great place to dine, The Sur House is the place to go. You won’t find children running around with the chic atmosphere and sophisticated menu. Not to mention it’s located right inside an adults-only Ventana.
If you and your spouse are the adventurous type, spend an afternoon doing the 5-mile long Tanbark Trail. This scenic route takes you through forests of redwoods and provides stunning coastal views. At the end of there is an abandoned tin house that you can go in and explore.
This quaint, southern town is the perfect adults-only escape. History buffs will love walking around and checking out the architecture and various museums without kids saying, “I’m bored!” However if you want to bring your fur baby along, Milledgeville is a great outdoorsy town that is great for dogs as well as dog lovers.
Speaking of dogs, you’ll love dining outdoors at Gringo’s Taqueria. This little tacoria has incredible Mexican food that you can eat on the patio with your furry friend. For a more upscale option for a dinner out, visit The Back Burner. This quieter venue offers an impressive menu with favorites like steaks, lobsters, fish, and lamb.
While you may think of Hawaii as all things “family-friendly,” there are many areas of these gorgeous islands where adults can enjoy a tropical paradise in peace—Wailea being one of the best on the island of Maui. This calm and laid-back atmosphere give adults just what they need to unwind in peace.
Discover private beaches, beautiful forests, and great shops and restaurants to experience. If you and your significant other like sushi, visiting Koiso Sushi Bar in Kihei is a must. Known for having some of the area’s best sushi, their fish is simply light, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth good. You can also check out The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea for locally sourced island-to-table food, This restaurant offers treehouse dining for a secluded and romantic atmosphere.
Hawaii is also known for its outdoor adventures. Rent a kayak to take out on the ocean or take an evening lava hike on La Perouse Bay. There’s also snorkeling excursions to be had and sunset cruises to enjoy.
