Spring is a great time to plan for a romantic getaway. With the cold weather of the winter behind us, it is a perfect time to get out and explore and have some fun. If you and your significant other have been itching to get away and relax, then you have a great opportunity. 

And if you are not able to plan a week-long vacation, and only have the weekend to get away, then you have tons of great options at your disposal. The cool thing about spring is that you don't have to travel too far to enjoy yourself. There are very nice weekend trips that you can go on. Unlike the vacations that you might plan during the winter where you have to fly to a faraway beach, in the Spring, you can travel close to home. Here are a few ideas to consider.

Wine Tours

One of the most fun ideas for a weekend getaway is to go on a wine tasting tour. While some people might think that a wine tasting tour is going to necessitate you traveling to France or California, that's not necessarily true. You can also spend the weekend on a great wine tour located close to New York. You might want to look into a tour of the vineyards of Long Island. This is an easy trip that you can take if you live in Manhattan. There are buses that you can get and tour the wineries along the North Shore, as well as the ones in the Hampton's.

Bed and Breakfast

If you prefer a relaxing, quiet vacation, then you should look into a bed and breakfast trip. You can find quaint bed and breakfasts located in Upstate New York and take a nice trip to the country. You can find these bed and breakfasts online and read reviews of other people who have stayed there. You might want to even check out some of the old homes (such as Victorian homes) that will feel like you're transported back in time.

Lake Vacation

Instead of traveling to a Caribbean beach (which would be a long vacation) you can look to one of the lakes in New York. You can find one of the large public lakes located outside of the city and drive up or take the train and find a local hotel where you can stay for the day. Then you can go swimming or boating and enjoy the water.
