Romantic Vacation CoupleTraveling with your loved one is something that is special and should bring you closer. In a lot of cases, this is some of the only alone time a couple may have gotten in a long time. It seems there’s always work functions, friends in town, hectic schedules, and many other things that unexpectedly get in the way of any romantic vacation plans. Well, now is your time to get away from the everyday agenda and spend time with the one you love most with no interruptions.

In order to have to most amazing, memorable, and romantic vacation possible, some planning must take place. Whether you’ve planned a stay at the Camden Harbour Inn for a last-minute surprise getaway weekend or a long week in Maine’s quaint coastal paradise, keep in mind these tips.

1. Keep your head in the romantic vacation getaway mindset.
Make an agreement with your partner beforehand that you are going to have an amazing trip no matter what. Leave the drama at home. In order to have the best time possible on your vacation, you both need to confidently make every effort to make it a reality. Remember that it takes two! Be as loving and as accommodating to one another just as if it were your first time dating again. If you need to, write out your agreement and sign it like a contract. Not only will it assure you both that you will try your hardest, but it will also help get you in the romantic vacation mindset you should have throughout your entire stay.

2. Be active and plan out your daytime and nighttime activities.
Use your luxurious vacation time to take care of your body. Just because you’re taking a break from your normal daily routine back at home doesn’t mean you should stop taking care of your body. The Camden Harbour Inn is conveniently located within a short walk from the downtown Camden area, so there’s no excuse to not walk. Also available to our guests are our fitness, swimming, tennis and golf facilities. Feel free to use our facilities at your leisure to continue your regular workout routine. Even better, set some time aside to workout together. Not to mention, those who exercise regularly have a higher sex drive!

3. Make a packing list to make sure you don’t forget anything.
In order to thoroughly enjoy your trip, make sure that you have everything you need. Prepare for packing with a detailed list of everything you need to comfortably live outside your own home for however long you’re planning on vacationing. Passport? Credit cards? Medications? While many necessities are available for purchase in the town of Camden, things like these are irreplaceable and if you forget them it may cause you an unnecessary headache. Don’t let your forgetfulness or a last minute mistake ruin your whole trip.

4. Take lots of photos to reminisce on in the future.
What better way to remember your romantic vacation of a lifetime than with lots and lots of photos to remember each moment by? Don’t feel embarrassed that you want to document what a great time you’re having. The happiness you feel on your love-filled getaway is a wonderful keepsake and by looking at each of the photos you take later on in life you will get the same feelings you did while you were on this trip. Plus, what isn’t photo worthy of the beautiful state of Maine?

5. Remember to take a break from all the sightseeing.
While there are many recreational activities you can find in Camden, from hiking and touring some of Maine’s most beautiful state parks all the way to boat cruises in the harbor, it’s important to take a break from the tourist life. If you find that you’re filling your days with too many things to do, skip out on something and relax in your hotel room. Enjoy the fellow tourists and hotel guests along with the friendly locals you can find downtown. Find a place to grab some drinks and an appetizer and relax while taking in the real Camden local life. Allow you and your significant other to just be together for a while.
