8 American Destinations for a Romantic Getaway

Kaua'i: Kaua'i has a lot of different ways for thrill-seeking and sun-loving couples to make their romantic getaway more exciting. You and your partner can spend time alone on beaches, unwind in a private house, or go kayaking along the Napali Coast, which is picture-perfect.

Lanai: Sharing a distant island with your partner is romantic. Lanai's exclusivity might make you feel like you're alone with the Hawaiian breeze. Before exploring the little island's landscape together, dine at a luxury hotel or resort and relax by the pool.

Napa Valley: This wine lover's paradise 60 miles north of San Francisco is the perfect romantic retreat with rolling vineyards, quaint wine caverns, sophisticated restaurants, and top-notch hotels.

Sonoma: Sonoma is another great place for wine lovers to visit. It is known to be less tense than its friend Napa, and it has more than 425 wineries. But strolling through vineyard trees isn't the only thing that couples have to do.

Charleston, SC: Charleston, South Carolina, is a low-key vacation spot with pastel-colored historic homes, art shops, and delicious Lowcountry food (great for couples who love to eat). If you want to turn up the romance, ride in a horse-drawn carriage or book a sunset port cruise for two.

Sedona: It's simple to declare your love while suspended on red rocks overlooking miles of vibrant Arizona countryside. After trekking Sedona's sandstone buttes, unwind with a couples massage at a world-class health center.

Big Sur: Windswept shoreline and rugged mystique draw visitors to Big Sur. Big Sur is a tranquil California coast town with two luxury hotels, but nature is the headliner. Hike the redwood-lined pathways and view Pfeiffer Beach before pitching a tent and camping under the stars.

Big Sky, MT: Let Big Sky's vast terrain, fresh air, and rural romanticism transport you and your partner from daily life. This Montana resort's top-notch ski resort (with a heated chairlift) attracts couples in winter, but the offseason offers fly fishing on gorgeous rivers, hiking under a clear sky, and road trips to Yellowstone National Park.
