getaways can be a second honeymoon or
your first vacation together. When you
don't have the time or money for a
long trip, try one of the following.
Spending time at a nice hotel is
the most obvious and common romantic
weekend getaway, and with good reason.
It is wonderful to be waited on and
relax in a hot tub together. The best
hotels for this will have a pool, a

are no cars, so you'll have see the
island together by horse carriage.
