Oh, the places you will go.
Some of the best memories are those that are affordable, relaxed and simple. Think of places around your home that are staycation-esque. Whether you book a hotel a few miles or 50 miles away from your home, these adventures won’t hurt your budget and will be an experience to bond with the one you love.
Winery or Brewery Tour
Famous wineries include Napa, Temecula Valley and Santa Barbara in California. But what about beer? According to Forbes, the Ten Top American Breweries Worth a Visit include one close to Health Beauty Life headquarters. Our local brewery, Stone Brewing Company in Escondido is a real treat. Known for their famous “Arrogrant Bastard Ale” this restaurant and brewery is close to the ocean and not too far away for a “Day in San Diego”. Other noteable breweries include locations in Bend, Oregon and Brooklyn, New York.
Sometimes getting in the car and driving away from home with no plans attached can be exhilarating. Use apps for your iPhone or Android like Hotel Tonight and Groupon to see local deals along the way. Although gas prices are hefty on the bank account, don’t venture too far, a town nearby can be just as exciting with a new dinner spot or art gallery to check out.
Snowboarding or Skiing Adventure
If you are avid skier or snowboarder taking a trip to your local mountain can be a great way to get out for the day or night. This can add up when renting or purchasing new gear or equipment, so start planning ahead of time. If on a budget, buy food before you go, pack it in a ice chest or buy dry food and meats at the local market. Stocking up before can equate to a romantic dinner inside your hotel or cabin.
Wherever you reside, the beach, country or a small town, think of a spot that is tranquil and relaxing. A place where you can pack breakfast, lunch or wine. This is a great way to bond and get back to the little things, like just the two of you.
