Plan Your Activities
Lake Havasu is full of fun things to do. Choose how you would like to spend your time by planning some activities in advance, avoiding the dreaded “what should we do today” conversation each morning. Some of the options available in Lake Havasu include:
- Water sports
- Boating and boat tours
- ATV tours
- Beer or wine tasting
Set Aside Time Alone
While this trip is all about connecting with your friends on a long double date, it is also a great chance to enjoy some alone time with your partner. Set aside some time to get out of the house alone, maybe making dinner reservations for one couple while the other orders in and relaxes by the pool, or separating for the day to do an excursion that only one couple is interested in.
Before you arrive, take some time to discuss dining preferences and decide on how meals will be handled during the trip. You can plan to eat out at local restaurants, take turns cooking meals in your accommodation, or even have a potluck-style meal where each couple prepares a dish. The more you can figure this out beforehand, the less work you have to do while you are there.
Delegate tasks and responsibilities between the two couples to ensure a fair division of planning duties and make sure the trip is going to work for everyone. For example, one couple can take charge of accommodation and transportation arrangements, while the other couple focuses on researching and planning activities or dining options. Collaboration is key to make sure that both couples’ budget, preferences, and needs are accommodated and avoid conflict on the trip.
Leave Time to Relax
Remember, it’s easy to over schedule a vacation and go home more tired than you were when you arrive. Choosing a vacation rental where you can make yourself at home is key to not feeling exhausted by the end of the trip. While double dates can be fun, setting aside some time to simple unwind is crucial.
Leave time in your schedule to relax back at The Place, spending a day by the pool, sleeping in, or just enjoying a casual dinner and game night. The best part of traveling with another couple is just enjoying each other’s company, so don’t stress about planning out every moment.
