I live in the North East and I'm looking for an easy 4 day getaway with my honey. Her 30th birthday is coming up and I'd like to do something special and romantic. I don't mind flying but I don't want to go too far because of time restrictions. Got any ideas? Lover Luke
Dear Lover Luke
What a guy you are! I've got a couple of great suggestions for you. Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos is a short and direct flight. The resort is private, chic and quaint. It's also on a health kick. It's yoga centric and the food is natural and mostly low fat. Depending on your room choice, it can get expensive, but after one walk on those white sand beaches with clear turquoise waters, you'll agree it's worth every penny. Another terrific trip with an even shorter flight is Bermuda. It also has beautiful sand and water. Stay in Elbow Beach for the complete experience. Some other ideas that are less expensive (again, depending on where you stay) are visiting Charleston to do some antiquing or partying it up in South Beach, FL. All are memorable and fabulous!
