Fun Weekend Getaways for Couples!

1.Napa Valley,  California

Of course, we had to include Napa on our list! While you could easily spend weeks here traveling to all the various wineries, it is also a great weekend destination.

If you and your partner love wine and want to have a fun weekend tasting some of the world’s best wine, Napa is the perfect destination for you. In addition to the wine, you are sure to also love the gorgeous scenery there. Napa Valley is beautiful!

If you aren’t a major wine fan we don’t recommend coming here, however, if you don’t want to taste wine the entire time, there are other things to do! In addition to the great wine there are also fantastic restaurants to sample some delicious food.

If you are looking to be a little more active, you can go golfing at one of their many golf courses. There are also tons of spas in Napa if you want to focus on relaxation, or if you are looking for something totally unique, why not take a hot air balloon ride?

Eagles Vines Vineyards & Golf Club,

We recommend spending a long weekend in Napa staying at a hotel or resort that is close to various wineries. There are plenty of winery tours you can sign up for that will pick you up from your hotel and take you around to various wineries.

This is probably the best, and safest way to do Napa if you want to go wine tasting (no drinking and driving!). If you schedule a long day of wine testing, we recommend you don’t schedule yourself for an early flight home the next morning! Thank us later!

2. South Beach, Florida

For a fun, flirty weekend destination, why not go to South Beach? Known for their beautiful people and beautiful beaches, South Beach is an excellent destination for couples to get away and have fun.

What is great about South Beach is that there is a perfect balance of city and beach – because why choose just one? This also makes it a perfect weekend destination – spend one day out on the beach, and another in the city! This gives you a perfect balance of activities and makes for a perfect vacation.

We recommend picking a nice hotel (there are so many to choose from) in South Beach that is right on the water – who doesn’t want to wake up to an ocean view?

Ocean Drive,

Ocean Drive is the top spot, and as the name suggests, right on the ocean! Enjoy the nice amenities of the hotel and enjoy the beach that is just steps away. The next day- get dressed up and head to Lincoln Road!

Lincoln Road is one of the most famous streets in all of Miami (and even in all of the US). It is closed to traffic, making it a pleasant, walkable strip of stores and restaurants that can easily keep you occupied all day (and all night!) long.

Lincoln Road,

With such a variety of stores and restaurants, you’ll easily be able to find something you love. Be sure to take advantage of happy hours, sit outside, enjoy a nice drink, and people watch!

3. New York City, New York

If you and your partner enjoy the city, what better place is there to go than the city that never sleeps? New York City is an iconic destination that is perfect for a weekend getaway. With so much to do, you can be guaranteed you won’t get bored. You might even decide you have to stay for longer than a weekend!

While in New York City, you have to take in all the major tourist attractions. Head to Times Square and take in all the lights- it really is an unforgettable experience!

Central Park is a beautiful destination that can’t be missed, and of course, you need to hit up major destinations like the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and of course, see a show on Broadway!

In addition to all the sites to see, there is also tons of amazing food in New York City. No matter what style of cuisine you enjoy, you can find some of the best restaurants in the world for it here. Of course, before you leave, you have to try authentic New York style pizza!

Central Park,

New York City is definitely one of the more exciting, busy destinations on this list. If you are looking for a more relaxing getaway, this probably isn’t the destination for you.

However, if you are looking to have fun and stay busy and don’t mind the hustle and bustle, you are sure to have an absolute blast with your partner!

4. Savannah, Georgia

Looking to slow things down a little? One of our favorite places when it comes to fun weekend getaways for couples is definitely Savannah. A gorgeous city with plenty of intriguing architecture, tons of statues, and beautiful trees and greenery, there is something on every corner to look at!

For a more relaxed day, we recommend heading to Forsyth Park and enjoying some time outside. Take in the gorgeous trees, the green grass, and shop local vendors that love to set up stalls around the park. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee or have a relaxed brunch.

Looking to liven things up a bit? Of course, you have to head down to River Street! Right on the river, this strip of restaurants, bars, and stores is lively all day and all night long!

River Street,

Grab a quick drink or settle in for a delicious meal- Savannah has some excellent restaurants! Walk along the river or take a nice ferry boat ride to take in more of the sites.

Tybee Island,

If you want to head to the beach, you are in luck! Very close to Savannah is Tybee Island, a great destination for a relaxing beach day. Walk along the pier or simply lay out and soak up the sun or catch some waves in the water. Head back to Savannah whenever you want – it is only about 20 minutes away!


5. Palm Springs, California

Even all these years later, Palm Springs is still a top vacation destination and features plenty to do. With plenty of retro hotels, as well as numerous modern ones, you can decide which era you’d like to visit while heading on vacation!

You can also decide to go hiking, and if you don’t mind driving a bit, you can even visit the famous Joshua Tree National Park.
