If you’re planning a beach getaway, odds are, there is an excursion where you can ride horses along the beach. Make it even more romantic by scheduling your ride at sunset.

Swim with Dolphins or Stingrays

Swimming with dolphins is one of the most popular excursions for a reason. Dolphins are intelligent, gentle, majestic creatures. This excursion typically includes a ride on their fins – the closest you’ll ever get to being a mermaid! – feeding them, and performing tricks. Want something a little more raw and natural? Try swimming with stingrays! They’ll dance around your feet, tickling your ankles. You’ll be able to pet and feed them!

Cooking or Baking Class

What better way to start off your marriage than by cultivating a skill you can use together throughout your life? Learn to cook a delicious meal that you can make again for each anniversary or special occasion. More of a dessert person? Learn to decorate cookies or how to make the perfect souffle to impress your guests when hosting dinner. Not only will you have fun spending time with your new spouse, but you’ll walk away with new skills to perfect!

While a little adventure is fun and makes for great stories to tell when you get home, be sure to schedule some quiet, quality time to spend with your spouse, too. After all, this is your first trip as a married couple and you deserve some peace and relaxation after a hectic year of planning!
