There's something really special about romantic getaways in December. The weather is perfect for cuddling, but there are plenty of other activities you and your special someone can do together. Some say that when you're in love, everywhere feels like paradise. Sometimes the daily grind can wear away the enjoyment, as the stresses of regular life can mess with your romantic spark. With the right activities and the right vacation rental, you can put the fire back and then some, to say nothing of all the great memories you'll make together during your getaway.
The boardwalks are yours during this off-season. Just because it's a little chilly, the softies are long gone. But with your mittens in your sweetheart's mittens, you can watch Cape Neddick Lighthouse
get surrounded in snow from York Beach
. During the Christmas Prelude
, Santa Claus forsakes his sleigh for a lobster boat.
Some of the most romantic getaways in December happen on the beach. Belize comes with a huge number of beaches that you can walk to from your rental. By day, it's a great place to build a sand castle and play some volleyball together. By night, it's even better for laying back and listening to the waves crash against the shore.
This combination swanky little town and artists' village is a historic settlement near the Wabash
. Tour the dozens of galleries, take in a good meal at the Red Geranium
and enjoy the thin snow covering of southern Indiana in the winter time. The Chugach Mountains
give lovers the chance to get their hearts racing together in yet another way. Take a helicopter ride, and a few minutes later you'll be on slopes that may have never been skied before. If you've got a sense of adventure, take your sweetheart on the ride of a lifetime out of a helicopter and down the mountain.
This city has a huge number of museums to explore hand-in-hand, such as the Canadian Museum of Civilization
, the National Gallery of Canada
and the Canadian Museum of Nature
. On top of all that, you can go to all kinds of trendy shops like Zone
in the Byward Market area
Some of the coolest romantic getaways in December are also some of the warmest. Take your sweetheart out for crab and oysters at the Casablanca Fish Market
. The Cafe Hoy Como Ayer
is a great club to groove with your love, and you can sleep it off in the comfort of your rental.
Visit the Channel Islands National Park
, which allows you to go on all kinds of kayaking, sailing and hiking adventures with your sweetheart in nature as pure as your love for each other. You can even explore the nearby town of Avalon if you want to get a Mediterranean feeling.
There's more than just a canal here. December is just shy of high summer in this part of the world. The Amador Causeway
is a great place to dine and check out the entrance to the Canal.
The town of Antigua is a funky little place where the 16th century never quite ended. Your rental will have all the amenities, but you can't find the unique crafts sold at Chichicastenango
anywhere else. Take a long walk through the city's ancient architecture. Nothing affirms your love for one another more than seeing for yourself how long great things can last.
You can river raft together on the Martha Brae River
, or take in the beaches, open-air concert hall and reggae museum in the town of Ocho Rios
