The hardest thing in a romantic relationship is finding the right way to express your feelings. From small gestures to big displays of affection, everything is worth considering to keep that fire burning as bright as on the first date.
While some settle for flowers, poems, and a three-meal dinner complete with wine and dessert, you will want to go all out. Enjoy each other’s company in the most amazing places, sharing the most stunning vistas. Here are the seven best couple retreats in the U.S. to make memories that will last a lifetime.
Charleston, South Carolina
Paddle into the sunset on the Folly River or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the cobblestone streets of historic Charleston. For a more relaxing time, picnic in the gardens of Middleton Place. The fact is that Charleston has a distinct Southern charm that makes it a top wedding destination in the country.
Share the view of the harbor from the balcony of the lavish Market Pavilion Hotel located in the heart of a colonial Charleston. Its luxurious guestrooms and suites will make your couple retreat feel like a fairy tale.
Coronado Beach, California
If your idea of the perfect couple retreat involves long strolls on a beach, you will love Coronado Beach. It is one the most picturesque Californian beaches that stands out for its family-friendliness.
Enjoy whale watching or just wading in the calm waves. San Diego is just minutes away, in case, you want to introduce your significant other to the vibrant Californian nightlife. Otherwise the restaurant and other amenities at the upscale Hotel del Coronado are enough to never want to leave your love island.
Cuddle before the lobby fire in a cottage or snuggle close on the ski lift. Colorado is a top ski destination that attracts not only daredevils but also love birds. Who wouldn’t fall in love with its breathtaking mountain vistas?
Away from the slopes, you will find an upscale, quaint town with enough great restaurants and shops to keep you entertained. Ultimately, if you will want to keep warm while sipping on great wine with your partner, the hot tub and sauna at the Mountain Chalet Aspen will make your happiness.
If you could bring only one thing with you on a lost island, what would you take with you? Maui can be that island and your partner that one “thing” you just can’t leave without.
By day, explore the island, its exotic jungles and the depths of the Pacific coast hands in hands. By night, stargaze while cuddling on the most picture-perfect tropical beaches in the world. Choose Ka’anapali Beach if you want to witness the beauty of marine bioluminescence. In which case, the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel would be the right fit for you.
Tahoe City, Alaska
Don’t be so surprise to see Alaska in the list. A couple retreat should be about private time together and secluded getaways. Those are exactly what awaits lovers in Alaska. Take in the marvelous scenery of the Last Frontier. Awe at the glaciers, volcanoes, and the waterfalls. Hike majestic trails amidst an unspoiled nature or go on boat cruises. Here the public parks put cabins at the disposition of visitors; a perfect hideout for the romantic weekends you ever had together.
