Couple on winter vacation in NYC

City escape

Not every vacation has to be somewhere warm. Yes, that is ideal if you hate winter, but if you don’t mind bundling up and you’re craving some urban fun, grab your guy and hit the road! New York, Chicago, Portland — the possibilities are endless. Whether you take a weekend jaunt or a weeklong trip somewhere, pack your bag and get going. Stay at a boutique hotel (smaller but with lots of character) and check out the best of what your city of choice has to offer.

Resort romp

Sometimes all you want to do is kick back, relax and let someone else do all the work. Spending a week at an all-inclusive resort means all you need to worry about is what swim-up bar to go to for your next drink and if you feel like forgoing a tanning session in favor of beach volleyball (or some extra time spent between the sheets). Look for deals on sites like and Travelocity to find a deal or last-minute vacation package.

Off the beaten path

Depending on your travel partner and your sense of adventure, backpacking in a new place can be an exciting and positive experience. Where have you always wanted to go? Choose a few vacation destinations and decide based on where you can find a flight in your price range. Pre-book a hostel or budget hotel for the first few nights, and once you arrive, plan an itinerary depending on how long you’re staying. Use city guides to figure out what you want to see and do, museums to check out, art galleries and must-see neighborhoods.


Even more so than a resort, cruises are floating luxury hotels that are sure to make for an unforgettable vacation getaway. Everything you might want to do (from salsa dancing to rock climbing) is at your disposal. Visit a site like Cruise Deals to find a trip in your price range. Search by desired destination, number of nights and departure dates to get a personalized listing.

Bon voyage!
