Tips for Your Romantic Escapade

  1. Don’t start your romantic escapade in the off-season.
  2. Choose activities that lead to romance. Take a dance class or try out a sport that neither of you has tackled. Zipline in Maui while staying in Kapalua.
  3. Splurge on extraordinary things, like V.I.P service, an upgraded room, or limo service. Take the horse and buggy ride around the French Quarter in New Orleans. Go hot air ballooning over Napa Valley.
  4. Be playful with your love. Try karaoke together for the first time or go to a comedy club and laugh out loud. Make snow angels, build a castle, or fly a kite on the beach.
  5. Don’t book a restaurant serving more than three courses per meal. There is nothing worse than sitting through an 11- course tasting menu. Because all you want to do is get cozy together.
