Looking to get loved-up with your honey this year? Here’s our showcase of five romantic holiday options that we think should be on your radar in 2018. Whether you are athletic or more into athleisure, we think at least one of these places will suit your tastes. So, without further ado:
Well, this one is a bit obvious, but what romantic holiday list would be complete without the City of Love? Visit Notre-Dame, The Louvre and the Eiffel Tower first to tick them off the bucket list, but then move on to lesser-known sights like the Tuileries Garden and Le Marais district to round out the experience. Finish up with a candle-lit dinner for two and a stroll along the riverbank for a magical evening.
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
Renowned for being a slice of the Tuscan countryside in the USA, we think Napa Valley is best experienced by train. The Napa Valley Wine Train is a 3-hour experience that not only serves a great meal but winds through the scenery in an enchanting gait. We think it’s the best way to get a ‘lay of the land’ in order to note what wineries to visit later in your trip. Pick up a bottle to enjoy together later.
NORTHEAST HARBOR, MAINE
Hobnob with the rich and famous in your coziest sweater because; even in summer, it can be a little brisk. Spend the day on a chartered boat or strolling local public gardens and at night, tuck into some fresh regional seafood for an authentic taste of Maine. Delight your partner with a bit of seclusion but with all the mod-cons.
FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMAS
Do we even need to tell you what’s on offer in the Bahamas? Probably not. However, if you do tire of snorkeling and scuba; there is always shopping in Port Lucaya Marketplace or if that’s not lively enough, the Junkanoo Beach Club Freeport at Taino Beach. Enjoy al fresco dining and a moonlit walk on the beach for a fairytale ending to your romantic holiday adventures.
PIKES PEAK, COLORADO
Finally, for those looking for the spectacular and raw beauty of nature, we recommend the 14,115-foot (4,302.31 m) Pikes Peak. It should be experienced both as part of a hike but also as the perfect tapestry when viewed from the Garden of the Gods & Colorado Springs. It’s so incredible that it’s the second most popular mountain for tourists in the WORLD! Brave the elements and test your endurance together, it may strengthen your relationship.
