The 4 Best Travel Destinations to Celebrate Your May-December Romance This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the per­fect time to rein­tro­duce some spark and siz­zle into your May-December rela­tion­ship. This year, it not only falls on a Sat­ur­day, but it falls on the Sat­ur­day before Pres­i­dents’ Day, which makes for the per­fect oppor­tu­nity to escape with your older man for a lit­tle long-weekend getaway.

Travel has been shown to improve the level of sat­is­fac­tion in a rela­tion­ship. It’s also been shown to lead to more romance and bet­ter sex after the vaca­tion is over. In one sur­vey, cou­ples who trav­eled together reported hav­ing a bet­ter sex life than cou­ples who didn’t travel. And 60% of the cou­ples polled said that get­ting away together had more of a pos­i­tive impact on their rela­tion­ship than exchang­ing gifts did. Need we say more?

If you’re won­der­ing where you and your older man should jet off to this Valentine’s Day to cel­e­brate your May-December rela­tion­ship, here are a few suggestions:

1. New York City: It doesn’t come as much of a sur­prise that this is one of the most sought-after travel hot spots for cou­ples, thanks to its ros­ter of fine din­ing expe­ri­ences and unbe­liev­able date night venues. This is also the per­fect travel des­ti­na­tion for sin­gle ladies, because accord­ing to a pop­u­lar dat­ing web site, New York is home to the largest per­cent­age of mil­lion­aire mem­bers reg­is­tered on the site.

2. Las Vegas: This is always a pop­u­lar travel pick for cou­ples because it’s got some­thing for every­one, espe­cially if you’re just going for the week­end. You may not have time to go to Italy, but you can ride the gon­do­las at the Venet­ian hotel, or if you’re feel­ing more like Paris, you can snap a PDA-packed pic­ture of you and your older man in front of the Eif­fel Tower at the Paris hotel. One of the best parts about Vegas is that noth­ing is off lim­its, so feel free to flaunt your May-December rela­tion­ship all you want.

3. Chicago: You might not think of the Windy City as a roman­tic travel des­ti­na­tion for your May-December rela­tion­ship, but there’s actu­ally a lot for you and your older man to do, like walk along the pier or enjoy a night out with din­ner and a show. If you’re not inter­ested in brav­ing the colder tem­per­a­tures, it’s the per­fect excuse to book a suite at a five-star hotel and spend some qual­ity time together indoors.

4. Que­bec City: It’s really only a two-hour flight from New York City and it’s the clos­est you can get to Europe with­out actu­ally going there. The cob­ble streets, Medieval-style archi­tec­ture, fine French cui­sine, and five-star hotels make this Cana­dian city the per­fect retreat for a roman­tic week­end away.
