Once in a while, a romantic getaway can be just what you need to rekindle that spark, celebrate your relationship, or simply have some fun together. Whether you choose to explore a totally new place or return to a well-loved favorite vacation spot, you should be able to enjoy yourselves wherever you go, but there are some spots that lend themselves to romance a bit better than the rest. If you want your trip to feel truly special, you’ll want to do some research and pick a spot that screams “romance” to you both.
Looking for a little inspiration for your next romantic getaway? Here are a handful of my favorite romantic vacation destinations:
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA.
If you both enjoy a bit of wine, a trip to Napa Valley can make the perfect romantic getaway. You’ll have fun touring vineyards, sipping your way through wine tastings, and learning more about one of your favorite beverages, but don’t worry – there’s more to do than drink. As far as food is concerned, Napa Valley is home to some of the nation’s best restaurants, so you know you’ll eat well.
And if you’re looking for items to fill your itinerary, you won’t run short on things to do together here. Plan a scenic hike through the hills, book a hot air balloon ride, indulge in a couple’s treatment at a local day spa, or just take advantage of the amenities available at your hotel or bed and breakfast.
If your flavor of romance is more Southern charm, a weekend getaway to Savannah may be right up your alley. Filled with public squares, cobblestone streets, and moss-draped oaks, you’ll fall in love with the city’s charm and atmosphere. Tour the city by horse-drawn carriage or stroll through the streets with your favorite beverage in hand – Savannah is one of the few cities in the country that allows open containers. For a truly romantic start to your day while you’re here, plan a quick trip to nearby Tybee Island to watch the sunrise!
Winter playground for the rich and famous, it’s no surprise to learn that Aspen makes the perfect spot for a romantic getaway, regardless of the season. You’ll be treated to stunning mountain views, and in the autumn, you’ll witness some of the most impressive fall colors in the country. You’ll find plenty of options for fine dining and luxury shopping, if that’s your thing – but the town is also home to an array of cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants that really embrace the area’s mountain roots.
Whether you love to ski, snowboard, hike, or bike, Aspen is the perfect place to share your love of the outdoors – and each other – together. And when you’re done? Kick back and relax at one of the spas in town, or plan a trip to nearby Conundrum Hot Springs for a natural soak.
When it’s time for you to choose the perfect spot for your next romantic getaway, see if one of these destinations fits the bill! From the rolling vineyards of Napa to the stunning peaks of Aspen and the Southern flavor and charm you’ll only find in Savannah, you’re guaranteed to enjoy a good time with your husband, wife, or significant other, wherever you choose to visit.
