5 Vacation Ideas for Your First Trip Together

Going on a trip with your partner can be a significant turning point in your relationship. It’s a great way to get to know someone better when they’re away from the office and the familiar comforts of home. 
It can be difficult to grow in your relationship with someone if you always have to attend to responsibilities around the house or at work. Try to get away for a bit, even if it’s just for a few days.
If you’re stuck figuring out where to go and what to do, check out the list below. There are plenty of places to travel to, both close to home and a few hours of air travel away. Wherever you choose to go, you’re sure to build memories to last a lifetime.

Go on a Road Trip for a Cheaper Option.

If you can’t afford plane tickets, consider going on a road trip. Hours in the car can give you lots of talking time, and road trips allow you the flexibility of stopping any time you see a beautiful view or a cute coffee shop. 
A lot of people can’t afford to fly far away, so they take a road trip. One writer drove to California and declared the time away was the best trip she had ever taken. A vacation doesn’t have to be far away to be fun. You can create lasting memories just a short drive away from home.
Whether you go to California or Maine, there are plenty of places that will offer beautiful drives. Pull up a map of your area and try to find a route you’ve never been on. You may be surprised by what you’ve missed out on that’s right around the corner.

Stay at America’s Castle. 

Would you like to travel to a castle, but can’t afford to go all the way to Europe? Go to America’s castle. Nestled in the mountains of North Carolina is the Biltmore Estate, complete with an Inn on the grounds where you can stay with your sweetheart.
An Asheville insider wrote on Explore Asheville about how you can stay on the Biltmore Estate, which is home to America’s largest house. On the estate are a few different options where you can enjoy beautiful mountain scenery, luxurious accommodations, and cozy romantic details such as a fireplace or jacuzzi in your room. 
There are plenty of beautiful mountain views to photograph, historic places to visit, and lots of quaint restaurants in downtown Asheville where you can linger over delicious local cuisine. 

Don’t Miss Out on This European Gem.

If you’re planning on going to Europe, make sure to schedule in time to hit Granada, Spain. While it’s not as well-known as places such as Paris or even nearby Barcelona, Granada is a lovely vacation area. 
If you haven’t been, you should definitely check it out while you’re in Spain. Travel + Leisure noted that one of the best places you can stay there is in the old palacio, which is where there is a combination of beautiful original detailing along with modern touches.

Have You Been to Maui?

According to U.S. News, Maui is perfect in size and temperament for a visit. It’s a lot smaller than the Big Island while still being larger than Lanai. It gives its visitors a beautiful mix of culture, history, and amazing wildlife.
Maui is one of those places that are just right, whether you’re wanting to sway next to hula dancers, snorkel with sea turtles, or golf along the beautiful coast. No matter your differences with your partner, you’re both sure to find things you’ll love about Maui.
The island is near the Big Island and is easy to miss as tourists spend most of their time in the larger, better-known area. Definitely take time to schedule Maui into your vacation schedule! All it has to offer makes it an excellent choice for your first vacation as a couple.

Go Big. Go to the Caribbean.

You’ll remember your first vacation together forever. Why not make it one well-worth remembering? The Caribbean is a place worthy of being your first couple vacation spot. The turquoise sea, white sand beaches, and balmy weather make it the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself.
Whether you want to swim with dolphins, snorkel with tropical fish, attend lively festivals, or watch gorgeous sunsets that paint the sky in a multitude of colors, you can do it all in the Caribbean. Try a couples all-inclusive, and avoid the families and children. There’s so much to do, see, and eat, you won’t want to come home.

The Options Are Endless

There is a lot to choose from. Whether you choose one of the five gorgeous places listed above or another lovely spot, it’s really about getting the time away together. After all, your first vacation with your partner only happens once in a lifetime.
