8 Most Romantic Getaways in the US
It’s never a bad idea to get away for a romantic retreat with your significant other. Pack your bags and book a pair of tickets to one of the eight most romantic spots below.
8. Traverse City, Michigan
Hop on a flight to Chicago and beat jet lag with a quick stop at Pizzeria Uno for deep dish pizza before heading East towards Traverse City. Charter a sailboat and go for an island-hopping adventure. Snuggle up at the Wellington B&B after indulging in a farm-to-table Italian dinner at Trattoria Stella.
7. Portland, Maine
Imagine rocky coasts, plenty of fresh oysters and cozy B&Bs with traditional New England charm, and you’ve got the perfect combination for a long weekend getaway with your other half. Take a ferry to Peaks Island for a refreshing lunch at Peaks Island House, then head back to the mainland for a night’s stay at Black Point Inn.
6. Texas Hill Country, Texas
Fly to Austin and make a quick pit stop at Baby Acapulco for purple margaritas and huge portions of queso-drenched Tex-Mex before heading out of the city towards Dripping Springs. Somewhat new to the wine game, this hidden gem offers the epitome of romance with cottage and ranch-like accommodations, spas and farm-to-table restaurants, complete with live music. Spend the day at the winery and end it with a gourmet dinner at The Cellar Door. Check-in to Camp Lucy Cottages for pillow-top, plush beddings and quick access to the creek.
5. Temecula, California
Take a two-hour drive from Los Angeles and you will find yourselves rolling in green hills filled with perfectly plump grapes. Spend the night in one of South Coast Winery‘s Tuscan-style cottages and rent a driver from Temecula Black Car to escort the two of you as you explore the vineyard. Do not miss out on the Almond Champagne at Wilson Creek Winery, and you must book a candlelit dinner at South Coast’s own restaurant, The Vineyard Rose.
4. New Orleans, Louisiana
Enjoy rich, authentic Cajun dishes and get your feet up and dance in a jazz bar on Freeman Street. For something fun to do during the day, try signing up for a cooking class at New Orleans School of Cooking where you can learn more about traditional New Orleans cuisine. Book a room at the Audubon Cottages in the French Quarter to enjoy its famous salt water pool.
3. Telluride, Colorado
This high-altitude town will remind you of a Swiss Mountain village as you wander hand-in-hand through the wooden architecture. Make reservations to take the gondola up to 12,000 feet and indulge in classic Italian cuisine and award-winning wines at Alpino Vino. Book a room at the gorgeous and historic New Sheridan Hotel. If you’re looking for something off of the beaten path, take a drive to nearby Ouray (just over an hour) and tuck into Bon Ton‘s giant baked garlic.
2. Big Sur, California
Rent a convertible in San Francisco, let your hair down and get your camera ready as you wind South on the Pacific Coast Highway with your partner. Things will start to feel like a fantasy as you reach this hideaway among the giant redwood trees. Check-in to the rustic-chic Post Ranch Inn and book a reservation for a sunset dinner at the inn’s Sierra Mar.
1. Sedona, Arizona
Completely encircled by hundred shades of rouge rocks, this old western film town will have you two feeling completely in awe. Explore the hippie shops filled with collections of crystals and Native American art. Try hiking to bell rock to see if you two can experience a vortex together. If you want to catch the sunset, make reservations at Mariposa, sit on their large outdoor patio and watch as the red rocks illuminate and glow as the sun goes down. Don’t miss out on Sedona’s signature drink: The Prickly Pear Margarita.
