San Francisco, California

San Francisco is consistently named one of the most romantic cities in the United States. The chilly weather encourages couples to snuggle up, while the fog lends an air of mystery. Check out any number of the city’s museums and cultural institutions, or take a picnic up to Coit Tower and wait for the fog to break enough to give you and your lover a breathtaking view of the bay.

 

Paris, France

They don’t call Paris the romance capital of the world for nothing. There’s no limit to the number of romantic activities available in Paris. Reserve a seat on a twilight dinner cruise on the Seine and enjoy French wine, delectable cuisine, and dancing while you glide past the city’s most famous monuments. Ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower and hold hands as the entire structure bursts into a dazzling light show. Or visit the square in front of the Notre Dame, where you can jump onto the literal “center of Paris”. They say if you make a full turn while standing in the center of Paris you will return someday, so grab your sweetie’s hand and wish for many happy returns.

 

Charleston, South Carolina

If you’re looking for a Valentine’s destination that’s charming, fun, and budget friendly, then you should check out Charleston. This small city offers the pinnacle of Southern charm with many historic buildings surviving from before the revolution! If you have the time you can take a tour beyond the city to check out some preserved plantations, which offer a unique slice of American history. In the city there’s world class food, stunning parks, and a bustling nightlife perfect for couples who want to enjoy a night out.

 

PraguePrague, Czech Republic

Prague is one of the hidden jewels of Europe, full of history, culture, and excitement but long overlooked in favor of the capitals of Western Europe. Take your valentine to this Czech capital and you can both bask in its storybook atmosphere and striking, out of this world architecture. Prague’s Old Town offers unique sights, shops, street vendors, and wandering musicians to serenade you and your lover during your quirky romantic getaway.

 

 

Monte Carlo, Monaco

 If you’re looking for a luxurious Valentine’s experience, jet off to one of the wealthiest places on Earth- the city-state of Monaco. Here you can dine on Michelin-star cuisine at nearly every corner, walk up and down winding streets dotted with gorgeous French architecture, and catch glimpses of the crystalline waters of the Cote d’Azur. Monte Carlo is also the location where American actress Grace Kelly met and fell in love with the prince of Monaco, beginning one of the greatest real life fairy tales of our time.

 

Aspen, Colorado

For the thrill seeking couples out there who still like to be pampered, Aspen offers the best of both worlds. Hit the slopes early for a world class winter sports session and then relax with a cup of gourmet hot cocoa and a cashmere throw by the fire as the sun sets. Aspen also offers a wealth of shopping opportunities, great if you’ve spent so much time planning your vacation that you forgot to pick out a present. If neither of you have experience skiing or snowboarding, then learning a new sport together can be a fun and romantic experience.

 

mauiMaui, Hawaii

Maui has long been the favored island of Hawaii, and it’s not hard to understand why. If you and your valentine are looking to escape the everyday and relax in each other’s company, a beach vacation may be just what the doctor ordered. The black sand beaches and warm waters make this a stunning choice for any couple, and a bit further inland you can find amazing seafood restaurants and cultural destinations featuring the rich heritage of one of our youngest states.

At night the island comes alive with many festivities and clubs to choose from. If you grow bored after a day of beach combing, Maui offers many sporting activities to choose from. Couples can learn to surf, windsurf, paddleboard, scuba dive, snorkel, or parasail together and create a lasting Valentine’s memory.
