Chicago is a wonderful place to visit for a weekend trip. It is easily accessible from just about every airport and for many midwestern states, it is an easy driving distance. Chicago is around 4-5 hours from where we live. I was born just outside of Chicago, spent a summer in college working there and my husband went to undergraduate there, so we both know the city well and this made it an easy decision for us when we were trying to find a city for our one-year anniversary trip.

Playa Del Carmen along the coast of Mexico is a perfect honeymoon destination. A romantic beach location at an all-inclusive resort is on the top of the list for many newlyweds. Like many others, we chose the beach when it came time to plan our own dream honeymoon. There is something romantic about a beach destination and all inclusive is definitely the go-to choice for a carefree vacation. We picked Mexico for the direct flights, quality, and price.

Pack things you think you may need. Even if you don’t wind up using them, you won’t waste a second of your trip searching for antacids, toothpaste, or a band aide. In addition, the markup at the gift shop for those items will make you very angry once you realize you can buy the travel size at home for less than a dollar. Bonus Tip: Recently, my husband and I’s luggage was lost by the airline on our way to Europe. I will be carrying on as much as possible from now on, especially toiletries!
