Plan a special destination 40th wedding anniversary for the two of you. Travel to a romantic spot and spend a long weekend (or a week). Regardless of when your anniversary is, you can schedule your getaway when the weather is right and the timing is good for you. Pick a spot with attractions appealing to both of you so you can spend your days and nights enjoying each other’s company.

Bar Harbor, Maine

Bar Harbor is a quaint resort town on Mount Desert Island, just east of Bangor, Maine. Surrounded by Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor clings to the rocky coast of Maine. Take a private carriage tour following the famous scenic carriage roads engineered by John D. Rockefeller in the park. Stop by Thunder Hole at high tide to hear the thunderous boom made by the surging water. At low tide, walk across the large sand bar to Bar Island and explore the nature trail and enjoy views from the summit. Window shop along the main thoroughfares. Stay in a romantic bed and breakfast inn. If you’re in town on the Fourth of July, don’t miss the parade.

La Jolla, California

La Jolla, California, is a jewel of a beach-side city, convenient to everything you'll need. You can walk to cafes, restaurants and the beach. To explore further, grab your car and head north to Torrey Pines Glider Port, where you can watch hang gliders run off the edge of the cliff, lifting off in the updrafts and soaring over the water before returning to earth. Turn south to tour the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. Stop for authentic Mexican food at one of 30 Mexican restaurants in the Old Town section of the city. There's plenty for the two of you to do or you can simply relax on the balcony of your hotel and enjoy the ocean breeze.

Enjoy the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas by staying on the Strip in the centrally located Mirage Resort. Meander the Strip at night and witness the Mirage’s volcano as it erupts, then walk down the street to the Bellagio for the beautifully orchestrated fountains, light and music shows. Enjoy the show from the Fontana Bar. Set aside time to play the slots, side by side.
