Ideas for Romantic Birthday Getaways
Surprise your partner with a trip to somewhere she's always wanted to visit. (couple on the beach image by L. Shat from Fotolia.com)

Celebrate your partner's birthday by planning a romantic getaway for just the two of you. Wherever you take her should be somewhere she really enjoys or has always wanted to go. Include a few excursions, or plan to relax in a jacuzzi or in bed for the duration if she'd find that more pleasant. Consider the amount of time you can both take away, and arrange a mode of transportation you're both comfortable with.

The Beach

Take your partner to his favourite beach or a beach he's curious to visit if he enjoys water sports, walking along the sand or staying in a house or cottage with an ocean view. Many beaches offer bed-and-breakfasts or inns where you can lock yourselves in your room while still taking in a magnificent view. Consider a lakefront cabin or cottage if you want more privacy or have a limited amount of time and don't live near a beach. Enjoy a dinner on the water, a bonfire, a two-seat bicycle ride on the boardwalk or a stroll on the beach if he likes the fresh air. Extend your vacation to an exotic locale, such as the Caribbean, Hawaii or Fiji, if you're celebrating a milestone birthday.

The Mountains

Rent a cabin or resort in the mountains if your partner would enjoy the seclusion the trees would bring. Opt for a location that has an indoor hot tub large enough for two and a fireplace. Pack up your tent, sleeping bags and a picnic basket full of your partner's favourite foods if she's the adventurous type, and then go camping, hiking or rafting. The mountains are perfect if her idea of a romantic evening is the two of you sharing a sleeping bag under the stars.

The Countryside

Plan a trip to the countryside if your partner is laid-back. A train ride through wine country with wine-tasting stops is ideal if he's a wine connoisseur. Stay at a bed-and-breakfast, and visit a farmer's market or fair. Rejuvenate your youth and love by partaking in the things you did together when you first fell in love, such as walking through a carnival hand in hand.

The City

A trip to the city can be romantic if your partner loves being in urban places or has always wanted to see a particular city. For example, in Las Vegas, visit the features that re-create the famous destinations of Europe, such as a gondola ride at the Venetian hotel or dining in a restaurant overlooking the water show at the Bellagio. In New York, take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park or see a Broadway show. Nearly every bustling city has an attraction you can get lost in together while blocking out the crowd.

The Sea

If your partner dreams of the sea, book a cruise on either an all-inclusive ship or a private, chartered sailboat. Some cruises include stops at ports offering romantic restaurants or excursions, or you can engage a large suite on the ship and never leave your cabin. The destination and length of your cruise should reflect your available time and budget, as well as your experience. A shorter cruise is best if neither of you have much experience at sea. This could save you from a disastrous getaway if you find yourselves getting seasick.
