Love is in the air and you’ve decided you’re due for a romantic getaway with your partner. While Paris may be regarded as the ‘city of love’, not everyone has the time, money, or desire to head to Paris for a much-needed vacation. The good news is that there is no shortage of destinations within the United States that will provide plenty of romance, each in their own unique way.

Tropical beaches make for an obvious choice when it comes to a romantic getaway. Kaua’i offers numerous private, secluded beaches for some quiet alone time together. Some of the most amazing sights Kaua’i has to offer can be reached only by catamaran, kayak, or on foot, making it a great location for the adventurous type. Waimea Canyon and Sleeping Giant ridge are just two of the marvelous natural wonders near Kaua’i that are worth checking out.

Niagra Falls, NY
This beautiful wonder of the world is simply magical during every season, not just the summer months like many are led to believe. The summertime is packed with outdoor entertainment options, while the area turns into a glittering wonderland during in the winter. Various accommodations around the falls provide amazingly breath-taking views, especially during the night when colored spotlights illuminate the water and make it sparkle.

Cape Cod, MA
If you are looking for a more relaxing and quiet getaway location, Cape Cod is the place to go. Browse antique shops, stroll along historic harbors, or go biking through town on a tandem bicycle together. Enjoy the company of one another instead of relying on the chaotic hustle and bustle of other popular vacation spots.

New Orleans, LA
For a unique cultural experience together, New Orleans is the ultimate destination. However, unless you want a ridiculously wild and crazy time, it’s best to avoid New Orleans during Mardi Gras in February. The party goes on year-round near Bourbon Street, so take that into consideration when making your sleeping arrangements. New Orleans is filled with mouth-watering Creole cuisine, jazz, and tons of mysticism for all its guests.

Key West, FL
For utterly breathtaking sunsets and the most active nightlife found in the Florida Keys, Key West is where it’s at. The fresh ocean breeze is filled with rich history and romance alike. Sandy beaches, shipwreck museums, and the purest blue waters set Key West apart from other Florida locations.

Savannah, GA
While it might not be the first place you think of when trying to come up with romantic vacation destinations, Savannah is both beautiful and friendly. You can look for ghosts in haunted manors, have a day filled with wine tasting, watch for dolphins, or find a themed tour to suit your tastes. Spend time doing the things you love to do together or try something new.

Chicago, IL
If you’d rather visit a city with top-notch attractions and tons of history to go around, the Windy City is an option worth considering. From museums to amusement parks, Chicago has it all. Visit the Sears Tower or go shopping along The Magnificent Mile, and don’t forget to snap a few pictures at Millennium Park before you head back home.

Seattle, WA
The city may be known for its rain, but if you don’t mind dealing with a little water, Seattle has plenty to keep you occupied. Visit the Space Needle, take an underground tour of the city, find the legendary Fremont troll, or take a cruise into the Puget Sound. If you have a GPS, try geocaching together to find local treasures.

Every city has its perks; it depends entirely upon what you and your love enjoy doing together. There is a certain amount of romance and excitement that comes when exploring a new city, whether you’re on a daring adventure or relaxing on a beach with a margarita in hand.
