When it comes time to plan a romantic getaway for you and your sweetheart, it can be difficult to narrow down the options – especially in a country as vast as the United States. That’s why we’re compiling a list of the top romantic attractions around the U.S., to satisfy your romantic desires.
If you’re looking to start planning a trip for this year, here are some of the top romantic attractions to consider
SPRING: Washington D.C.’s Cherry Blossoms
Every spring, cherry blossoms bloom in D.C. for just 1-2 weeks. This provides an incredibly romantic, picture-worthy event that people from around the world travel to the U.S. to see. Make it a full weekend with sight-seeing and historical tours, centered on the main floral attraction. Don’t forget your camera.
SUMMER: East Coast Beaches
Although states like Florida and Texas boast beach access year-round. There’s something romantic about basking in East Coast beaches during the summer – especially the ones in colder climates that aren’t always available depending the season. Consider a romantic getaway to New York’s The Hamptons, or one of the boutique beaches in Maine.
For example, the Town of Southampton: https://www.southamptontownny.gov/.
Saratoga Springs, New York
Home to the oldest race track in the country, during the month of August, Saratoga Springs is a total romantic getaway, with quiet dining along the full-bloom streets, to private boxes at the old fashioned race track. Take a dip in the nearby Saratoga Lake.

FALL: Golden Gate Bridge
Sure, San Fran’s Golden Gate Bridge is a year-round attraction; but, consider its splendor with the fall foliage backdrop. Walk along the waters edge or across the bridge just the two of you, taking in the magnificence of such an architectural feat.
If you’ve never seen the aspens in full fall foliage bloom, it’s something you will want to consider with your sweetheart. Go on a private, secluded hike in Rocky Mountain National Park, with romantic resorts nestled next to the park. Of course, don’t forget to take amazing photos of the golden mountains.

Go skiing during the day, and enjoy some of their famous ice bars at night, using ice shoots to send drinks to patrons.
