Celebrates Love With Its Top 10 Wedding Anniversary Getaways

TORONTO--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - Last year, the newest royal couple in the British royal family charmed all of Canada and the world with their fairy tale wedding and first official visit representing the monarchy. Now, as Kate and William's one-year anniversary approaches, we are all ready for another wave of royal-inspired romance. To help couples everywhere find their own way to celebrate their love,, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, has pulled together its list of Top 10 Wedding Anniversary Getaways.

We've matched destinations to types of couples and trips, so whether you are looking for an adventure or a chance to catch your breath one last time before becoming parents, there's a getaway for you. Below are five of our picks, from relaxing beach retreats to adrenalin-pumping hiking adventures to a wild African Safari:

For the newlywed couple on a budget:
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
-- Starting a new life together can be expensive, and the first few anniversaries can sometimes get pushed aside. For those looking to celebrate an anniversary without a hefty price tag, consider heading south to Santo Domingo, where a Loonie goes a long way. There are plenty of resorts in the area, so finding an affordable all-inclusive package is easy. Spend your days basking in the sun, or hit the streets of the Dominican's bustling capital. As a lesser-known tourist destination, Santo Domingo offers visitors the ability to see the city on their own terms while meeting expectations as a tropical utopia.

For the expectant couple:
Sonoma, California
-- Looking to get that one last romantic vacation in before the little one arrives? Babymoons are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason -- they're a last chance for sleep and freedom. Sonoma is already known as a destination filled with Michelin starred restaurants and, of course, world-class vineyards. But it's also a great babymoon destination. Hotels and resorts like Hotel Healdsburg and Spa have entire menus dedicated to expecting mothers and fathers, and all treatments are designed to help you relax, prepare and get the most out of the final weeks before junior arrives.

For the adventurous couple:
Queenstown, New Zealand
-- For the duo that would rather trade in lounge chairs and fruity cocktails for hiking shoes and sports drinks, there's no argument that Queenstown is the perfect destination. This lakefront city has everything from skiing and snowboarding, horseback riding, hiking and white-water rafting. The first commercial bungee jump was established in Queenstown, making it a hot destination for daredevils looking to take the leap, but it is also home to jet boats that fly through the water performing stomach-flipping stunts.

For the couple seeking a romantic escape:
Positano, Italy --
Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, sometimes it's hard to keep that romantic flame burning. But a trip to the Amalfi Coast is sure to help. Like most of Italy, the wine, the food and the atmosphere leave one yearning for a more permanent Italian residence -- and Positano has that and more. Weave in and out of the picturesque hillside village, sipping limoncello and taking in the old fishing-village culture. The beaches are a must-see. Be sure to check out the Santa Maria Assunta church, which houses artifacts from the 13th century.

For the off-the-beaten-path couple:
Mombasa, Kenya -- A typical couple might travel to Africa and visit Cape Town, South Africa's coastal gem. But for the couple that wants anything but ordinary, a trip to Mombasa is the answer. Located on the coast of Kenya, bordering the Indian Ocean, Mombasa is the perfect mix of unique African culture and a sun-and-sand getaway. Before seeking independence, Kenya was at the hands of the Portuguese, the Arabs and the British, all who added to the rich culture and history of Mombasa. And of course, just outside of the city there are plenty of safari tours for those wanting to walk on the wild side.
