title:Plan a Hometown Holiday
author:Paris Permenter & John Bigley
To travel or not to travel?
For many romantic travelers, that is the question.
The decision of whether to travel or not during these troubled times is a personal one, a choice only the two of you can make. But whether you choose to make an international or a domestic trip, you still can travel and enjoy all the romance and freedom that come with getting away from home.
Whether your reason is security, budget, or just a shortage of time, consider a vacation in your own hometown! Think about these options:
Rent an RV for a weekend rendezvous where the bed is never more than a few steps away!
Check into weekend specials at city hotels that primarily function as business hotels. Many offer special weekend leisure packages — you might get a romantic suite for the price of a standard room during the week.
Take off driving down local backroads. At each intersection, flip a coin to chart your course.
Act like tourists in your own hometown — down to the cameras and clothes. Be sure to ask people to take your picture at local landmarks.
Book a stay in a romantic bed and breakfast near your home.
Plan a day trip within a few hours of your hometown.
Schedule a day’s vacation in your own hometown. How many sites have you missed that you would have visited if you were a vacationer in your hometown?
