Every year we try to take a new vacation to somewhere we’ve never been before. Once year we sat down and made a list of the vacations we wanted to take before we had kids. Some places just aren’t the ideal locations for young children and some are far more romantic for just a couple. This is our list of the top 10 trips every young couple should take before having kids.
Hawaii is beautiful and it’s the perfect destination for a young couple. One day you can be lounging on a beach sipping a mai tai and the next be hiking up the side of a volcano. Delicious food and lots of activities make Hawaii one of the best spots to vacation for young couples.
The city of love is an absolute MUST for young couples without kids. You can explore the city, dine on some of the finest cuisine that France has to offer and see some of the most famous architecture and art in the world. If you love immersing yourself in the culture of a city, book the next flight to Paris.
8. Las Vegas
Some might say that Las Vegas is a destination suited more for a single-ton than a couple. We disagree. Couples can experience world class dining, luxurious couples spa treatments and the thrill of winning all in one spot. When day turns into night, you can dance the night away as you explore all that the Las Vegas nightlife has to offer.
We’ve done the Caribbean a couple of times, always on a cruise. It has always been a relaxing and romantic experience. When it’s time for a little R&R with your significant other, book a trip to one of the beautiful islands in the Caribbean. It will not disappoint.
Spain is one of the most diverse countries in the entire world. It has history, beaches, culture, shopping, nightlife and adventure. Every couple should explore all that Spain has to offer before having kids.
5. San Fransisco
San Fransisco is home to some of the most beautiful sunsets. Imagine walking across the Golden Gate Bridge at sun down and watching the sunset with your love. We promise it will be a memory that will last forever.
Thailand is stunning. The beaches are post card worth and the jungles look like something out of a movie. The food is so flavorful you will be craving it for years to come.
Mexico is a great place to visit especially when you’re on a budget. Cancun is full of all-inclusive resorts that include activities and food with your stay. In Mexico the water is always the perfect temperature so it’s great for a swim during the day. The nightlife is full of epic parties that you wouldn’t get to experience with kids.
2. Disney World
This is a trip that most people would take when they have kids right? So why put it on the list. It’s fun to just pretend to be a kid again. Let’s face it, adulting is hard. So take a break and remember what it’s like to be a kid by visiting Disney World at least once before having kids. Go on every roller coaster, eat at the best restaurants and say hello to Mickey and all of his friends.
1. Spontaneous Road Trip
This is number one on the list because it’s one of the easiest and cheapest to do. Turn off the phones and just enjoy being together. You can set out with no destination or pick one at random. Being trapped in a car with another person for hours on ends really teaches you a lot about that person. It’s the perfect trip for reconnecting and really learning about each other.
No matter where you go, or don’t go, you’ll always have the memories you made along the way. They’re what really matters in any relationship. Our hearts may grow older but our love only grows stronger.
