Up until today, the looming Brexit vote was more or less an abstraction for American travelers. Many thought of it as a preoccupation for those across the pond, but not anything we here in the states would need to worry about. Fast forward to midnight today when it was finally determined that the people of Great Britain would leave the European Union, and suddenly, their vote hit home. How does the outcome of Brexit impact travel this summer? We at Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE) think that until the dust settles travelers might want to consider staying on this side of the pond. And when it comes to the sizzling summer getaway that is long overdue, there’s no better choice to escape all the political and economic turmoil created by a Presidential election coupled with Brexit, than a romantic getaway to one of the 12 Distinctive Inns of New England.
Three reasons to stay closer to home & choose DINE inns this summer
- DINE Vacations will add years to your life.
As we watch stock markets fluctuate, we can’t help but consider our own portfolios. Yet, travel is as necessary over the summer as food and water. According to John Tesh, pundit of Intelligence for Your Life, you can cut your chronic stress by 30-percent just by taking one three-day weekend a month. He tells readers, “One study found that workers who took just one Monday or Friday off a month reduced their anxiety-related health problems like headaches, muscle tension, and blood pressure. In fact, just one extra day off a month can improve your health enough to add 8 years to your life.” And when it comes to cutting the stress of travel, consider a drive-to getaway. The 12 Distinctive Inns of New England are within a one-tank getaway of nearly every state in New England. Forget the hassle and headaches of airline travel and long TSA lines, jump in the car and head to any of the 12 DINE inns and leave all the economic woes behind.

Between the impact of Brexit, terrorism, congressional sit-ins, and the sparring political candidates, Americans are besieged by news stories which individually are enough to send us over the edge. Add them all together, and it’s no wonder we just want to escape. From the moment you enter one of the 12 Distinctive Inns of New England a sense of “ahhhhh” sets in from head to toe. Within an hour, the din of worry is behind you and all that matters are rest, relaxation and romance. After all, aren’t these the ingredients in life that really matter?
- DINE getaways are filled with value
With Great Britain leaving the European Union, all eyes are on the impact it will have on global economies, most importantly our own. Overnight the value of the British pound has plummeted, and it will be weeks…perhaps months…before the stock market settles down. Travelers will be seeking value from their vacations this summer as vacation funds may grow dear. No getaway is more filled with value than one to an inn or B&B. With all the extras – from afternoon teas and refreshments to gourmet breakfasts and plenty of beverages and extras in-between, not to mention free parking, free wi-fi access and all that haute hospitality, DINE getaways offer huge value. In a story on this blog a few years ago, we revealed how a DINE getaway can save travelers well over $200 on a romantic escape.
