Going on the same old dates can get, well, boring. It's true. If you've found yourself yawning over the idea of yet another Friday night dinner and a movie with your S/O, don't be alarmed. This doesn't mean that your relationship is faltering, it simply means it's time to mix it up a little.

Finding new and exciting date ideas isn't always easy though, especially if you're not exactly rolling in extra spending money - which is why you need to think a little bit outside of the box. Or in this case, outside of your box, that little square collection of rooms you call home. What am I rambling about? A weekend getaway of course. Thanks to AirBnB, you can skip dinner and movie and opt for a fun retreat to one of these romantic and affordable destinations, just a car ride away.

Please note: These prices may fluctuate depending on demand and season and may not reflect the exact price at the time of booking; there may be additional fees and service costs associated with the rental that are not included in the nightly rate.
