Staycations are the ideal way to spend important time together.
Couples who are short on time, but longing for time away, don’t have to travel far to reconnect and enjoy a romantic getaway. A stay at a local hotel or resort is the ideal staycation, offering opportunities to relax and to renew the relationship.
Staycations at a local hotel or resort offer something for every couple. Options can include cooking demonstrations and wine tastings for foodies, gallery visits for art enthusiasts and, for some, the time to simply relax and unwind in the room or at the spa.
After revisiting favorite memories, it’s time to make some new ones. Local museums offer a range of new experiences. Take painting lessons at the museum, or draw or take photos together.
Couples who crave adventure might prefer a hiking excursion, while those who enjoy sporting events might prefer a night out at the ball game.
Often, these staycation experiences leave a lasting impact. They may even present additional experiences to enjoy in the future.
Romantic Staycation Ideas for Couples
For couples who live near Omni Hotels & Resorts, a memorable staycation is close to home.
Omni Parker House in Boston is steps away from the Freedom Trail and surrounded by American history. The hotel itself dates back to 1855, and its on-site eatery Parker’s Restaurant is where the Boston Cream Pie was invented. The hotel offers a 24-hour fitness center, and guests can get more exercise by following the 2.5-mile-long Freedom Trail. The route leads to 16 historic sites including the Paul Revere House, Bunker Hill Monument and USS Constitution.
A weekend in the Big Easy is a foodies’ paradise when staying at Omni Royal Orleans. The hotel’s Rib Room restaurant, which serves prime rib, beef specialties, fowl and seafood prepared on giant French rotisseries and mesquite grills, is a favorite among tourists and locals. Throughout the French Quarter are countless culinary offerings: cooking classes at places such as the New Orleans School of Cooking, fine dining at GW Fins and Restaurant Rebirth, and beignets at the renowned Café Du Monde.
