Living a healthy lifestyle, losing weight, becoming more active and being the best spouse you can be are all notable self-promises. Believe it or not, adding more visits to the 11 DINE inns can help you achieve all of those resolutions, plus more. In 2020, our advice to you is “Take the Trip”. It will help you fulfill all those resolutions plus enjoy a fabulous romantic getaway all in one!
Four ways a visit to a DINE inn will fulfill your news year’s resolution
Become more active
While the 11 Distinctive inns of New England are all about rest, relaxation and romance, they are also bastions for fabulous outdoor adventure. From soft adventure like oceanside strolls to more active fun like ziplining, hiking or biking through the hillsides, outdoor fun is a part of every DINE getaway. Many DINE inns specialize in outdoor fun from skiing and snowshoeing packages to sleighrides and beachside walks. If your resolution is to become more active, your first step will be to book a getaway to your favorite DINE inn. You’ll prove to yourself how much fun being active is; a great way to jumpstart your way to succeeding in your resolution.
Along the same lines, if your resolution is to become healthier, your first step will be to book a DINE getaway. Your DINE getaway starts each morning with a hearty homemade breakfast. Put aside the processed egg sandwich and the loaded bagels. You’ll enjoy freshly made eggs, cereals, and locally roasted coffees to start the day. Your DINE innkeepers incorporate the freshest of produce and locally-sourced ingredients into everything they serve. There’s always fresh fruit or juice to start the day too. No more processed, GMO-filled breakfasts for you. Since it’s the most important meal of the day (according to most Moms), it should be served with a smile and fresh from the kitchen. Take home a recipe or two from your favorite DINE inn, so you can replicate your DINE breakfast in your own kitchen.
Be the best spouse/person I can be
Want to be a romantic hero? DINE getaways top the list for those seeking to re-connect with their spouses and/or those they love. From snuggling in front of a flickering fire or under fabulous linens on comfy beds to quiet talks or hand-in-hand walks, there’s something about going away to a beautiful and distinctive inn that brings out the romance. At long last, you can relax and focus entirely on yourselves as the DINE innkeepers and their staff tend to everything you might ever need. Here’s your chance to enjoy one another with your undivided attention. That’s just hard to do at home, but when you travel, enrich yourself with the company of that person you care about most, and you’ll find love over and over again at each DINE inn.
Expand my horizons
If your resolution is to expand your horizons, then travel should take a priority. Whether you travel to one or more of the DINE inns, or to other places in the world, the best way to expand your knowledge of the world and its cultures is via travel. From a few miles away to half-way around the world, you’ll discover new ideas, people, adventures and fun if you travel. Take the trip; don’t wait. The new decade is upon you and 2020 should be the year to expand your horizons and travel the world.
