Inexpensive romantic weekend getaways aren't really about the destination but about being creative and spending quality time together with your partner.
Staying home may sound misleading, but consider this: You're already paying to live at your place, so why not make the most of it this weekend. The trick to making this a romantic getaway for you and your partner is making the appropriate transition. It will require a commitment to turn off the TV, unplug the phone and make a sacred vow to ignore the laundry, the dishes and the lawn.
If you can't disconnect while at home, the cheapest accommodations are typically without walls and usually involve a tent. If you're new to camping, it's a good idea to do a little pre-planning, like packing bug repellent and a flashlight. Camping options can be found in every state and vary considerably in cost and amenities.
Depending on where you live and where you might like to go during your next romantic getaway, trading or swapping homes with another person may be an option. A number of online services will pair you with a prospective trader, and you just have to pack your bags. Some preliminary interaction is required, and you may have to pay to use the matching service, so a last-minute trip might be unrealistic.
