5 Weekend Getaways for Couples Who Aren’t Boring

Life is too short to be boring, so grab your sweetie, get out there, and enjoy some new experiences in new places.

Event Shuttle Service of Wilmington, NC is your ally in banishing boredom and making the most of your getaway weekend. Take a luxury shuttle or car with Event Shuttle Service for your getaway weekend and you’ll have a chauffeur on call for all the things you want to do and see.

If you’re a couple who enjoys living life to the fullest, then these weekend getaways are for you:


1. Take a North Carolina Wine Tour


There’s nothing boring about a quiet drive through the North Carolina countryside when you stop at the wineries. Sample the wares, take a tour, learn about the wines, and enjoy good company while leaving the driving—and the worries—to us. Whether it’s just one couple or a bunch of friends, a North Carolina wine tour is a handy time to have a driver! That leaves you free to sample your favorite North Carolina wines, find a delicious place to dine, and have fun.

2. An Adventurous Weekend in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

There’s so much to do in Myrtle Beach and it’s just right down the road from Wilmington but across the NC border and far enough from home to run into anyone from work or your PTA. Yes, Event Shuttle Service can take you on a getaway weekend out of State! Head south of the border for a weekend of shopping, dining, and shows. Rent a beachfront condo off-season with your sweetie and see who’s headlining at House of Blues. If you’ve got a girls weekend in mind, check out our guide for the ultimate girl’s weekend in Myrtle Beach.

3. A Fun and Romantic Weekend in New York City


New York is always an adventure. Some love the Broadway shows: try Fun Home, Finding Neverland, or Kinky Boots. Some love the shopping: Visit Bloomingdales, Tiffany’s and the Greenmarket at Union Square, for instance. And no matter what type of food you like best, they have it in New York.

Ride in style to NYC in our comfortable, chauffeured cars or shuttles. Getting there is half the fun, and once you arrive, you have a driver on call to make sure your getaway weekend is anything but boring!

4. See the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte for a Weekend Getaway


If you’re stoked for football season, grab your partner and an Event Shuttle Service vehicle and head to Charlotte to see a Panthers game. If you like, we’re glad to bring along the whole gang—most of our shuttles seat at least 12. And if you’re more of a Hurricanes fan, our friendly, professional drivers can take you to Raleigh to root for the home team.

5. A Foodie Tour in Kinston is a Popular Choice for Couples


Fans of “A Chef’s Life” on PBS will love a weekend getaway to Kinston, NC to visit Chef & the Farmer restaurant. With innovative food that honors local producers and North Carolina heritage, Kinston is becoming a destination, so don’t miss out. Book a car or shuttle to take you up, and the party starts before you leave Wilmington!


At Event Shuttle Service, we specialize in taking the worry out of your transportation. When you’re ready for an exciting getaway weekend, we’ll get you there in luxury and save you the trouble of driving, traffic, and parking (all the boring stuff we know you hate!).
