Romantic Getaways in United States for Couples
Get ready for glamor and romance These romantic US getaways will inspire you.
Even if you've never visited Virginia before, you know its motto. In 2019, the Tourist Board is celebrating 50 years since "Virginia is for Lovers" was even inducted into the Madison Avenue Advertising Hall of Fame. Starting in June, take advantage of 50 consecutive days of statewide promotions and special events. A visit to the historic riverside city of Alexandria is a must. (Amazon tops the list of most romantic cities based on sales data for relationship books, romance novels and movies.)
Book a room at an oceanfront resort on Virginia Beach, the third largest beach in the United States, or stay at an inviting inn in the heart of Virginia's wine country. The Goodstone Inn & Restaurant in Middlesbrough made USA Today's 2015 list of the most romantic hotels for couples in the country. The property's award-winning French restaurant serves a selection of over 820 wines.
2- Scottsdale, Arizona
When you are long late for a couples massage, head here. This enchanting Sonoran Desert oasis has more spas per capita than any other American city. With nearly 70 spas and resorts, wellness is available at most price points. For example, at the #1 spa in Scottsdale, according to TripAdvisor reviews, a one-hour classic couples massage costs less than $100 per person.
Scottsdale is of course also a great base for experiencing nature together. Take a day trip to the Grand Canyon National Park or make a star wish while stargazing on a desert tour after hours. To be within walking distance of the vibrant Old Town scene, stay at the Bespoke Inn Scottsdale. It's the city's top-rated bed and breakfast, or better yet, a B&B & B—guests can take advantage of the free bikes to explore the area during their stay.
3- Maui, Hawaii
Over 100 years ago, Niagara Falls claimed to be the "honeymoon capital of the world". Today, this classification probably belongs to a place like Maui. It's for couples what Oahu is for families. In fact, on his list of the world's best romantic getaways in united states for couples, The Knot describes Hawaii's as a "no-brainer" when it comes to romantic destinations. Not only does tropical weather welcome, but Maui offers some of the world's most epic, accessible history ideas to date.
Wake up early to catch the sunrise over the crater of a volcano nearly 10,000 feet high in Haleakala National Park. End the day at sea level while toasting until sunset after spending the day snorkeling along a world-class beach. Thanks to the Wailea Hotel, Maui now also boasts the No. 1 resort in Hawaii, according to Conde Nast Traveler readers in 2018. An adults-only property, it has a great five-day "Romance Under the Stars" package.
4- Fort Worth, Texas
This former frontier town, famous for its historic ponds, is where you'll find Lockheart Gables, a bed and breakfast with a heart-shaped jacuzzi in every suite. Now, Fort Worth is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, perfect for a couple who loves to feel young. Then there is the Fort Worth Zoo. Not only is it the only zoo in the country that has all four species of great apes, but it also specializes in weddings. Martha Stewart's weddings even included a wedding in Fort Worth including appearances by the zoo's friendliest of reptiles and birds.
5- The Florida Keys
The Florida Keys may be the southernmost point of the continental United States but it's also one of the best romantic getaways for couples. Nearly 20% of visitors participate in a wedding or vow renewal while visiting this remote archipelago of more than 1,000 islands. With so much demand, the prices aren't exorbitant either. Conch Concierge "Key West Barefoot" Beach Wedding Show is only $195 and includes employee and photos. Of course, you can also come here for a regular weekend getaway. The two-night Parrot Key Hotel & Villas stay package — which just underwent a $25 million renovation and made Travel + Leisure's 2019 list of the World's Best New Hotels — includes a sunset cruise or sail snorkeling.
6- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The City of Love celebrates all kinds of love. With famous love statues, and even the AMOR statue, all over town, Philadelphia has plenty of unforgettable places to ask. Or at least, they make great photos. Another reason Philadelphia is such a great place for romance? It's the 5th most walkable city in the country, according to Walkscore.com, so there are plenty of opportunities for side-by-side strolls. And where do mouths meet while sharing a world-famous steak? Book a room at The Independent, a boutique accommodation with rates starting at $139 per night.
7- Grand Junction, Colorado
Grand Junction for Colorado is like Napa for California. This underrated area where two impressive rivers collide (the Colorado River and the Johnson River) is home to more than 20 wineries and vineyards. The scenery is also matchless. The Grand Junction is bordered by the Colorado National Monument - a national park with more than 20,000 acres of canyons and rock formations - and the Grand Mesa - the largest flat mountain in the world. In winter, you can go snowshoeing and even downhill skiing at Grand Mesa. If you're lucky, your visit will coincide with the Colorado Lavender Festival or the Palisade Peach Festival. (If grapes can grow here, why not peaches?) Perhaps the most romantic accommodations in the area are at Two Rivers Winery and Chateau. At least you won't have to worry about finding a home delivery after tasting plenty of Chardonnay.
