Want to keep the love alive in your relationship? Plan a wellbeing trip for just the two of you at one of these romantic vacation spots.
There’s something called the 2-2-2 rule, which is meant to ensure that you and your partner never stop “dating.” Basically, it comes down to this: every two weeks, you and your partner go out for the evening, every two months you go out for the weekend, and every two years you go out for a week.
Maybe it’s been a week, or even several months since you and your partner have spent some quality time together. Whatever the case, we’ve laid out some of the best romantic vacation destinations in the U.S. so you can start planning.
All these options provide an opportunity for you and your partner to reconnect, feel better and become closer in mind, body, and spirit (for deeper work, consider a couples retreat).
Perfect Romantic Getaways for You and Your Partner
1. Savannah, GA
Probably one of the most charming cities in the U.S., Savannah is a lovely place to wander around with your loved one. Take a stroll through the Spanish moss-filled parks, admire the historic squares, and explore the history found around each corner. This is definitely the place to be if you and your partner need a beautiful and ultra-relaxing vacation to recalibrate.
Must-See: Head to Forsyth Park for the ultimate romantic stroll.
2. Lake Tahoe, CA
Lake Tahoe is a beautiful vacation getaway throughout all seasons. Nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, you’ll get the perfect breath of fresh air. Ski down the mountains, hike through the parks, get a couple’s massage with a view, or relax with a bottle of wine by the fireplace. There’s plenty to do and see that will get you both reconnected with each other and nature.
Must-See: Take a hot air balloon ride over Emerald Bay, Cascade Lake, and more.
3. Portland, OR
Oregon constantly moves up on the list of places to visit, whether it’s for solo travelers or couples. The varied landscapes will draw you in, the wineries rival Napa, and the atmosphere is simultaneously lively and peacefully tranquil.
Must-See: Head 10 miles northwest of Portland to the beautiful Sauvie Island for a day of sunbathing and relaxation.
4. Boston, MA
A lot of the big cities are great for romantic weekends, but Boston made the list for a few special reasons. The history found in this town makes for an absolutely charming vacation. There are plenty of romantic things to do, fresh seafood to eat, and ways to wind down and reconnect.
Must-See: Picnic at the Boston Common and enjoy the opportunity to escape from the bustling city.
5. Saranac Lake, NY
Visit here in the fall to get those beautiful views of the foliage. Saranac Lake is a small town and a great spot for you and your partner to unwind and enjoy each other’s company. There are plenty of towns near the Adirondacks, but we love this one for its luxurious resort—Ampersand Bay Resort—which showcases the best of the best in the area.
Must-See: You must go hiking through Adirondacks National Park, it will truly help you reconnect with both nature and your partner.
6. Kauai, HI
Almost anywhere in Hawaii could be considered a romantic destination, but we love Kauai for a few different reasons. One of which is the tropical rainforest that covers most of it and gives it the title of “the Garden Isle.” If you and your honey need some beach time, then visit the picture-perfect beaches and waters of Hanalei Bay. Resorts here put you right smack dab in the middle of ultimate reconnection and rejuvenation.
Must-See: Take a sunrise stroll through the Coconut Coast for a beautiful backdrop to your conversation.
7. Jackson Hole, WY
Become one with nature in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It’s such a beautiful place to visit and offers so much for those who want to reconnect with loved ones. Go horseback riding through the mountains, take a sleigh ride through the hills, or enjoy the mental, emotional, and physical relaxation provided by the hot springs. You won’t regret a romantic getaway here.
Must-See: The list is endless, but you should definitely roam the Grand Teton National Park.
