Sometimes you and bae just need a little getaway — especially if you’re deep in the day-to-day grind and your go-to date night spots are looking a little less than inspiring.

It’s time to get creative and go slightly more off the grid with these quick-trip destinations. They’re all under four hours by car — many places are way less than that. And, that includes a pit stop at Buc-ee’s, naturally.

Sleep in the trees at Cypress Valley Canopy Tours

You’ll never forget your first time — sleeping in the trees. Not just a destination for zip line adventures, Cypress Valley also has an even better treat: glamping in tree-top havens nestled in ancient cypress trees. The Juniper, Willow, and Nest treehouses are all lovely, but indulge in the whimsical, round Lofthaven. It has a huge trunk growing right through the middle and features a romantic canopy bed, hammock, and wraparound porch. A bridge connects to a bathhouse with a waterfall-filled tub.
