Located in central Oregon on the Deschutes River, this city is a hiker’s paradise thanks to its proximity to both the river and the nearby Cascade Mountains. Stay at Brasada Ranch and enjoy horseback riding, skiing at nearby Mt. Bachelor, and visits to local breweries during your time in town. Choose between Ariana Restaurant, housed in a charming cottage, and The Blacksmith Restaurant, a small eatery set in a converted blacksmith shop.
Location: Aspen, Colorado
There’s something for everyone in Aspen, whether you’re looking to ski down to a quiet mountaintop meal or hike through fields of phrazle lupine and columbine to a high alpine lake for a picnic. Choose a room at The Little Nell for a couple’s getaway.
Chilean territory of Chiloe
Chiloe, a relatively unknown island, is like traveling back in time. A traditional way of life based on small farms, fishing, and handicrafts characterizes the archipelago’s inhabitants. Tierra Chiloe (on the Pullao Bay of the inland sea) is a great place to stay if you’re interested in doing things like horseback riding, digging for clams on the beach, sea kayaking from island to island, and hiking.
Wisconsin’s Door County
Wisconsin may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of a romantic getaway, but the state actually offers plenty of quiet retreats and exciting adventures for two. Stop by the Blacksmith Inn on the Shore, a B&B where every room features a fireplace, whirlpool tub, and private balcony overlooking Bailey’s Harbor. Sanctuary State Natural Area is close by and features 1,600 acres of boreal woodland that can be explored on bikes, kayaks, sleds, and snowshoes.
Its Coast in Oregon
Stunning scenery can be found along Oregon’s gorgeous coastline, and the charming seaside towns offer plenty of opportunities for romantic interaction. You may see the famous rock formations at Cannon Beach, get a free tour of the Tillamook Cheese Factory, and relax with a view of the forest from your suite at the Salishan Resort.
Central American nation of Costa Rica
The island’s spectacular jungles offer a wealth of adventure opportunities for couples. Playa Cativo Lodge, located in the middle of Costa Rica’s rainforest, is the perfect place to unwind after participating in a tour or exploring on your own. The eco resort features a freshwater outdoor pool, private outdoor terraces and plunge pools in eight of the suites, and free snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and self-guided nature hikes.
St. Vincent, Bequia
This tropical location is the next best thing to having your own own island, making it perfect for a romantic holiday. There are no stoplights, neon signs, chain hotels or restaurants, golf courses, or gated neighborhoods in this tiny town of about seven square miles and five thousand people. To reach there, you’ll need to first fly to Barbados (or St. Lucia) and then transfer to an inter-island hopper aircraft. You can stay at the Bequia Beach Hotel, a hidden, family-owned luxury resort, after you get to the island.
