You'll want to head to the most romantic places in America for a city stroll and a Michellin-starred dinner. Pack your bags and explore your love in a romantic setting! Check out the following list of U.S. romantic getaways:
Aspen is always a good idea! Its romantic atmosphere lures you in - from luxury hotels and fine dining to hitting the slopes. If you and your significant other are looking to find some peace and quiet, we recommend getting a couple's massage and a little champagne at Aspen's St. Regis. You'll be more in love than you've ever been.
Martha's Vineyard, MA
This charming getaway is a go-to spot for the Obamas! Rent a home or settle in at Hob Knob in Edgartown, where you can rent bikes or charter a sunset cruise aboard the hotel's 27-foot boat. Hit the beach, stroll through the town's lovely streets, watch the sunset together over a great seafood dinner. We recommend checking out Larsen's Fish Market and their signature lobster.
Rugged cliffs and sunny sand, emerald hills and epic hikes - that's what you're in for for in Kauai. What could be more romantic? It's a wonderland where you can take a helicopter ride past the Jurassic Park waterfall, or walk the wild Na Pali Coast. Afterwards, you can settle in with a cocktail on the beach.
Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook was filmed around Charleston. This very fact makes Charleston the ultimate romantic getaway destination. Make your own love story as you explore the historic district and its vibrant dining and wander through the gardens at the Boone Hall Plantation.
Big Sur, CA
This stretch of California coast is idyllic. Settle in for a romantic stay at the Post Ranch Inn, where you have a wide variety of exquisite suites with their own themes. Summer is the perfect season for this venue, so you're in luck! You can kayak with sea otters, take a moonlit tour of the Point Sur lighthouse or stay up late for a dip in the Esalen Hot Springs. Paradise!
