An anniversary trip—regardless of how many years or decades have passed since you said, “I do”—is a perfect opportunity to energize any committed relationship. Whether you’re celebrating your wooden anniversary with a first-time visit to Amsterdam or reliving your honeymoon after 25 years, an anniversary vacation promises to combine all aspects of a devoted romance: namely intimacy and trust.
And for lovebirds approaching that milestone Ruby anniversary? A romantic getaway can infuse your marriage with much-needed excitement and surprise.
Unlike a honeymoon, where newlyweds are often just excited to relax (especially after months or years of wedding planning), a successful anniversary trip may require more strategic preparation.
After deciding on a destination, consider an itinerary well suited to your specific marital milestone. For example, a 45-year anniversary calls for something more leisurely—like canoeing in Santa Barbara wine country—while younger couples might try skiing in Colorado, or booking a bucket-list safari in Botswana.
Luckily, we’ve done most of that work for you. From daring expeditions to intimate one-on-one moments, these trips prove an anniversary is the perfect excuse to discover a new part of the world—and a new side of your relationship.
