One of the first questions that came up when reporting this piece: How far is too far for a weekend? The below destinations were decided upon with 36-, 48-, and 72-hour travel itineraries in mind. That way, even if you have a six-hour flight to your destination (and your bags are smartly packed), you can still get in a full 24 hours of enjoyment!

Next, where does an intrepid couple go for a couples weekend trip? Karen Magee, president of Valerie Wilson Travel, Chase Travel Group, recommends a few different spots for partners. “Napa Valley checks the boxes on nature, wellness (they have amazing spas), world-class food, active options, and of course, the wine,” says Magee, while Mexico is “easy to get to from either coast and has an energy that invites you to relax, unwind, enjoy a margarita, and leave your laptop at home.” Whether you’re looking for a relaxing spa or the best East Coast beaches, we’ve rounded up some of the best domestic and international weekend trips for couples.
