The Benefits of a Second Honeymoon

Do you remember your honeymoon? Was it a magical time, just you and your new life partner, enjoying your first days together and exploring new places as a team? Did you go somewhere exotic, or maybe tropical? Did you go to a big city to get lost and find new treasures? It’s an incredible experience that couples look fondly on and reminisce about for decades.

What if you could have another one and share another experience like that together? Allow us to explain the beauty of a second honeymoon and why you should take one.

Over time, some couples can feel their marriage has grown, well, not necessarily stale, but you’ve likely fallen into a number of routines (thereby forming one grand routine) and the initial spark and magic may not be as bright and energetic as they once were. And that’s okay! Life happens. You have jobs, you may have a family. You definitely have responsibilities. Challenges come up; that’s what marriage is all about.

However, couples forget that they need to take time to work on the relationship to continue building it. Going through rote rituals makes it easy to forget that the other person is the love of your life and that your love needs to be celebrated. A second honeymoon gives you the perfect environment to reignite that spark into a wildfire.

It (re)builds your connection
You’re getting back to the start, where love was at its strongest and purest. You escape from the monotony and explore new places as a team and get to fall in love all over again. It’s the excitement of your honeymoon with the age, wisdom, and connection forged over the years of marriage.

You put yourselves, not your lives, first
Work and all of your responsibilities are put on the back burner, shunned from your minds while you focus on yourself and each other. Go out for drinks and dancing; go on hikes and explore your surroundings; live the lives you want to lead and ignore responsibilities. Be a couple in love and enjoy it.

It puts things back into perspective
Once you reconnect on your second honeymoon, you realize that day-to-day life doesn’t need to be as bland as it was. You can find time for each other and prioritize your love; don’t let routine creep back in and let things mellow out again. You find out what’s really important: your marriage.

Follow the Road Less Traveled

Whenever people think of their next vacation, they’ll often think of doing all of the touristy things: seeing all the sights, paying whatever fees for whichever guided tours, eating at the famous restaurants (assuming you can get in, or just finding the nearest chain restaurant they like at home). While this is all well and good for a memorable vacation, it’s not the only way to travel.

You don’t necessarily need to stay in the fanciest hotels and eat at the hippest restaurants when you travel. You absolutely can, and our Denver travel agency will always be happy to help you book the most romantic, exciting, and luxurious vacation you want.

For those who want a different type of adventure or maybe don’t want to splurge on food and lodging, traveling to a destination hot spot and then exploring off the beaten path may be the ticket for you. But what activities include going off the beaten path? Isn’t that dangerous? Well, with everything, a bit of context matters.

Say you travel to New York City. The typical things to do would be to go to the Statue of Liberty, the World Trade Center Memorial, eat at a Michelin Star restaurant. You know, the big-ticket items. Maybe even check out a Broadway play, or take a guided tour through the city. If you wanted to go off the beaten path, you could look up other smaller museums and shows. You could find out where the locals eat and why. As a quick aside: haven’t you ever heard someone say the best food is in the smallest places tucked away? It’s often true, and it could save you money on your food budget.

Sometimes going off the beaten path is as simple as exploring the other side streets in your neighborhood. If you head to Rome, of course, you’ll want to see the Colosseum, maybe even the Vatican. But Trastavere, a small neighborhood of Rome, boasts a number of intimate, casual, or exciting dinner spots, and town squares boast street performers to entertain you. There’s always something to see if you keep your eyes open.

It may also save you money staying in a hotel off of the beaten path. Rather than choosing a resort, you can stay in a quiet little hotel and work your way through the city to see sights that are often overlooked. Each neighborhood just outside of a major city hub has art, food, history, and experience to offer if you just go looking for it.

You may even meet some interesting characters in your travels. Why be stuck having single-serving friends on the plane or that one guy you keep seeing around the resort, when you could make a genuine connection with someone and learn more about your area. The locals know the places to be; you should listen to them.

As far as danger is concerned, use your discretion and best judgment. Do a quick bit of research to see if there are any dangerous areas near where you’ll be staying, and then avoid them. Or, go with a larger group, since there is safety in numbers. It’s usually not advised to walk around your own neighborhood after midnight; try to apply that strategy wherever you end up traveling.
