heather and james coupleplaces

Heather and James Hills created this site to help share our own knowledge and personal experience with couples that we've learned over the past twenty years of marriage. During that time, we have become a source of knowledge that many of our friends ask for recommendations from - both in regards to travel but also how we've managed to stay together and tips for maintaining a strong and healthy relationship despite the pressures of working together and traveling together for much of that time and challenges such as recovering from debt, surviving layoffs, and physical as well as mental health issues.

james coupleplacesAbout James Hills:

With more than 20 years in corporate marketing, including serving as Social Media Director for e-commerce brands such as ProFlowers and Shari's Berries where his focus was on engaging with customers looking to maintain strong relationships, passionate romances, and celebrate special occasions. 

After leaving the corporate world, James launched a series of websites promoting men's lifestyle and travel topics. He knew though that there was something missing ...

As a happily married man who loves to travel with his wife and share incredible experiences with those around them, he realized that there needed to be something else in their portfolio of websites.

That's why CouplePlaces.com was created ...

This site is a space for Heather and him to share a combination of travel adventures and relationship advice to hopefully help other couples develop as strong of a relationship as he and Heather do!

We are far from perfect, but we work hard to improve upon our mistakes and believe strongly in the art of continual improvement in all aspects of life. Hopefully, by sharing our knowledge and experiences with you - and others in the CouplePlaces.com community we can make an impact in ways that quite honestly didn't fit right in our other sites (ManTripping.com, MenWhoBlog.com, CruiseWestCoast.com, FlowVoyages.com, FlowMediaMarketing.com).

We can't do it alone though!

Other Contributors:

We welcome a variety of inputs but we also recognize that some subjects that involve couples, relationships, sexuality, and romance may include subject matter experts who wish some level of anonymity even though they are able to contribute excellent content that is helpful for couples who are working through various sensitive subjects.

As such, some of our contributors have chosen to use pen names for their posts here.

Fam trips are also available for marketers and journalists who want an up-close look at destinations worldwide before recommending them to others. It's an excellent opportunity for partners in the tourism industry and first-hand experience with CouplePlaces' recommended hotels, tours, restaurants, and more!

We are based in Southwest Michigan and love midwest road trips to explore small towns and romantic getaways as well as city breaks to glam it up in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, and Indianapolis. However, we are also open to opportunities to explore around the world including All-Inclusive Resorts, Cruises, and Bucketlist Tours.
