Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Rhode Island events like CumberlandFest in August.

but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Pawtucket, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Cranston resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.

ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Pawtucket."
