We Are the Millers

…before there was ever a show with the name. 😉

This Couple Travels is a blog for couples looking for unique places to visit (mostly) in the Deep South.

With reviews of restaurants, hotels, attractions, and cities, This Couple Travels offers descriptions & itineraries of weekend getaways for adult couples who are looking to explore new towns and cities.

Our Mission

We believe that our generation deserves a travel resource just for us. So often we hear “You’re so lucky that you can just pick up and go! I wish I could do that…”

Well, we’re here to tell you that YOU CAN!

This is where our focus is – helping those in their 40s (young at heart 50somethings and beyond are welcome too!) to travel more.

We provide tips on when to splurge, where to find the best drinks, how to make the most of your weekend, and anything else we think will help you travel more!

You’re In the Right Place If…

You’re looking for a unique place to visit and don’t know where to start!

Our Story

We don’t have one yet… after a last-minute weekend trip to OWA in Foley Alabama, we decided it was time to form the “next big thing”. As an established blogger for over 15 years at 3 Boys and a Dog, Kelli knew she could make This Couple Travels work. So, this is us (wow, another television reference??) leaving the kids home so we can travel the Deep South!

What states are in the deep south?

The deep south is a term often used to describe the southeastern region of the United States. The states commonly included in this region are:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas.

These states are typically characterized by warm climates, extensive plantation agriculture, and a history of racial violence and segregation.

The deep south has undergone significant political and economic changes in recent years, with many cities becoming increasingly diverse and prosperous.

We do things differently!

Couples looking for places to go in the deep south, couples weekenders, and individuals desiring adult travel destinations are the most common visitors to our site.

Reviews of restaurants, hotels, attractions, and cities

Reading reviews can be incredibly helpful when looking for a great place to eat, stay, or visit.

That’s why our reviews of restaurants, hotels, attractions, and cities is such a valuable resource. With honest feedback from people who have already been there, you can make more informed decisions about where to go and what to do.

Weekend getaways for adult couples

Weekend getaways for adult couples can be a great way to relax and reconnect.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic escape or a fun adventure, weekend getaways offer the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your partner.

You’ll have the chance to explore new places and try new things, all while enjoying some much-needed time together.

Unique towns and cities

We believe that every town and city has something special to offer, and we’re here to help you discover all the hidden gems. From charming small towns to bustling metropolises, we’ll help you find the perfect place to explore.

Meet Kelli & Ricky Miller

Kelli and Ricky Miller are the husband-and-wife team behind This Couple Travels, a blog for couples looking for unique places to visit from the perspective of a couple of middle-aged parents!

After 22 years of raising their boys, it was finally time for Kelli and Ricky to focus on themselves, their relationship, and their marriage. What started as a way to document their own travels quickly turned into a passion for helping other couples find great weekend getaways and explore unique towns and cities. Because they love to drive, you will find things mostly in the Deep South!

Kelli and Ricky live south of Mobile, Alabama, with 7 boys who call them “mom” and “Dad”, but only two are left at home. When they’re not busy working on the blog, you can find them exploring new places, trying new restaurants, and spending time with family and friends.
