It’s far too easy for even fit couples to fall into a winter slump that involves the complacent routine of pizza, popcorn, and movies on the weekends. Trade the sofa for your best romantic trip yet! Invigorating workouts mixed with great food and relaxation makes for the perfect break in your relationship routine.
The U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina keeps fit couples active with so many versatile options that hotel details won’t matter, other than being close to USNWC. Obstacle courses, climbing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, mountain biking, trail running, and zip lining are all off-season options. Plus, Charlotte is home to SportPort Active, so maybe you will see some of the team getting their fitness on in their compression gear!
Ski, Spa, & Snowshoe
Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa in Vermont not only has an adorable name, but they offer an exceptional package deal if you book a midweek getaway. You get the best romantic place to stay with included spa services, as well as downhill skiing lift tickets, fireside hors d’oeuvres, tea and cookies, and easy access to Nordic ski and snowshoe trails. As if that weren’t enough to keep you and your spouse moving, they also have a pool, Jacuzzi, and wellness center.
Run & Fun
Find a warmer weather state with a silly 5K to plan your weekend around, like the Insane Inflatable 5K in Houston, Texas. You may not be going for a PR but you will certainly get some memory worthy laughs with your spouse and have plenty to rehash later when you explore downtown Houston.
Finely Dine & Toboggan
Maine is known for snow, so bundle up and embrace it like the Northern fit couples do. Camden Snow Bowl Toboggan Chute will get your heart racing so the freezing temps won’t even matter, especially when you have a gourmet meal to look forward to. Live From Timeout blogger, Katie Clark, shares a review of the Hartstone Inn: “Not only are the rooms luxurious and cozy, but the Sweetheart package includes a decadent five-course dinner and a breakfast the following morning, which will undoubtedly be the best tasting meal you’ve ever sampled.
Hike & Relax
As if you need any more reasons to visit Hawaii, but why not take the slump out of the season and go Big.
