WeddingWire.com: 9 Anniversary Trip Ideas to Celebrate Any Milestone
Whether it's your first anniversary or your 50th, you may be thinking about hitting the road (or the skies!) for an epic anniversary trip to celebrate your nuptials. Not only do you deserve this romantic getaway, but it may be a first for you, at least in the last few years since the onset of the pandemic.
It’s true that, with mass vaccinations underway, and infection rates finally turning towards a decline, per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there’s no time like the present to research anniversary trip ideas and plan a special vacation. In fact, travel experts are already seeing major spikes in travel and tourism, and the numbers are projected to continue climbing through 2022. The number of visitors through the summer, which is usually the low season in Los Cabos, Mexico where Bonnie Chase, wedding planner and owner of Bliss Events, is based, were staggering. “Many people stayed home for a year or longer because of the pandemic, and now that travel advisories are lifted, people are feeling safer traveling, everyone is ready to jet off into the sunset,” she says. “Also, many people made more and spent less money during the first year of the pandemic that they had prior to that, and are now in a more financially comfortable financial position to travel, so we’re also seeing a trend of elevated event budgets.”
The good news: If you’re looking to travel in 2022, your chances of an unforgettable trip are pretty high. So many destinations are back up and running and are eager to satisfy travelers coming through—especially those looking to celebrate something special, like an anniversary. If you’re in the midst of planning a romantic vacation with your significant other, here are some of the top anniversary trip ideas and destinations to hit in 2022.
New York City
As the saying goes, “New York City is always a good idea,” and this is definitely true when it comes to celebrating your anniversary. One thing is for sure: There is no shortage of things to do and fun to be had in the Big Apple. On the list of romantic activities, you can catch a Broadway show, visit one of the city’s Michelin-star restaurants, check out one of the cool art galleries, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, take a day trip to the Long Island wineries, shop around SoHo and even kiss atop the Empire State Building. And when it comes to places to stay, the options are really endless. A central location and a romantic ambiance is a must for an anniversary trip. Consider the Loews Regency New York Hotel, situated right on New York’s Park Avenue and within walking distance to Central Park. With a fun and vibrant Art Deco feel, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city in most rooms and book yourselves a treatment at Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa located right below.
