Couples Getaway Close to Home

Travel does not have to be to some faraway land, require a flight on an airplane or hours in the car. Most of us I am sure could find a great place to getaway within an hour or so of our homes.  So when, I was invited by Staybridge Suites to spend a night in one of their hotels I decided to look for a place close to home. I also decided that my husband and I could really use a night away, just the two of us! Say what? That’s right a couples mini-vacation. Getting away just the two of us is a must! We sometimes need to remember what it is like to be just a couple.

Staybridge Suites Date Night Just The Two of Us



I searched online at Staybridge Suites and found two hotels less than 2 hours from my home. One was in the city and the other near the ocean. I asked my husband whether he preferred a night on the town or an afternoon on the water. We decided to go to the Staybridge Suites in Newport News-Yorktown because we knew there was a great little quiet beach where we could just relax and enjoy ourselves.

After our excursions for drinks and dinner, we returned to our hotel and took advantage of the hot tub. We had it all to ourselves.

Staybridge Suites King Size Bed

Our bed was a king size bed and it was very comfortable. We both got a great night sleep. It is so nice to wake up without an alarm clock (either digital or the human variety) and feel rested. We packed up and decided to spend a few hours on nearby Yorktown Beach.
