Need couples vacation ideas

My husband and I will be celebrating our 15th anniversary in July. We are looking to take a trip with out the kiddos, and are in need of some ideas and suggestions. We have been to Disney several times by ourselves and are looking to do something different this time. Please tell me your ideas, suggestions or favorite places to go for a romantic couples trip. We live in Virginia Thanks in advance!

We celebrated our 30 year anniversary, on Kauai, Hawaii last month. Awesome place. Relaxing or as busy as you want it to be.

We went to NYC for a long weekend. It was nice. Took in a show & did some sight seeing.

Paris is so romantic, as is Barcelona. And they are both cooler than Italy in July.

How far are you willing to go and how much time do you want to spend? Is there a budget to consider?

For a long weekend, since you live in Newport News, VA, I would go to Colonial Williamsburg or Washington, DC so much to do in either place.

Just did a week down in Naples for a get away just the dh and myself. Talk about relaxing...beautiful area, great shops, tons of restaurants and outside cafes, beautiful beach, zoo, fishing, boats etc etc....not sure of your idea of a getaway or budget but the getaway for us was just what we needed after the holiday madness. We live NE so the warmth was so wonderful....
Wherever you choose have a wonderful time and HAPPY Anniversary in advance.

I really wanted to stay in the US, since my kids will be staying with family, although a cruise isn't out of the question either. I am thinking about 4-7 days gone and I would like to keep it under 3,000, so I can still budget a trip to Disney with the family at the end of the year too.

I lived in Williamsburg 2010-2011 and then moved to DC 2011-2012 until June. I loved both places but I've done a lot in both cities, not to mention that WMBG is about 15 minutes away, lol but those are great suggestions!!

Something like this would be wonderful but I don't think Im ready to take that leap yet while leaving my kids in family's care. My kids are 13 and 15 I know that I probably sound like a crazy over protective mom, but in 2007 we left them in the care of my mil while we went to WDW and they were involved in a car accident. Since then it has been very hard for me to shake the feeling of helpless of when I got that phone call. I know that is probably silly but I just dont feel like I can go that far right now, silly huh??

Personally I'd go to Europe, but within your parameters I'd say Bermuda.

Hawaii is on the list, It is definitely one of our pricier options (mainly due to the airfare) but I would love it!

This one is on the list as well, I priced out a 4 night trip with hotel and airfare it was around 1900, that just seems like a lot am I wrong?? I told dh so he said, NY is not too far, just price out the hotel only and we could drive, I took the airfare off, it was still 1400?? Any tips on how to save $$ at this destination?

Thanks for the well wishes. I would LOVE to go to Key West. I am from FL and I have been craving some time to just be at the beach. DH craves excitement (think Vegas) but I crave romance and relaxation. We both need to come to a happy medium, soon.

I thought Bermuda too, I looked at several cruises that sailed from Baltimore, however my crazy dd thinks if we go there we will fall into the Bermuda triangle and never return. My child is crazy, lol.
