Hawaii – United States
The Hawaiian islands offer many unique, romantic, and fun ways to relax and unwind with your partner. The stunning beaches and scenery, the cultural shows and foods, picturesque volcanoes; there’s just so much to experience on these gorgeous islands.
Wales, United Kingdom
Wales has an interesting combination of scenery that you and your partner would both enjoy. There are beaches, ancient castles, rolling hills, and even roaming sheep. There’s a little bit of everything in this charming and quirky place.
New York City, New York – United States
Want to go to or stay in the U.S. but experience everywhere at once? New York City is definitely the place to visit. Everywhere in this city you’ll find a different vibe and energy. Art (both classic and street), museums, plays, and some of the world’s best restaurants make New York a mixing bowl full of adventure and experiences.
This little town is located in a large National Park in France. It has a quaint farming atmosphere with beautiful scenery and delicious cuisine. It’s a great place to get away from hectic schedules and enjoy the peace of the countryside.
This town has a mixture of classical architecture and more modern structures, mouth-watering food, and plenty of little shops to visit. This destination can be a great way to experience a Spanish town without the crowds of some of the larger cities the country is known for.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Well known for its tropical charm and beauty, Bora Bora had to make it onto this list of ideas. This island has coral reefs, magnificent beaches, volcanoes, and, on my personal bucket list to experience, over water private bungalows. Don’t they look heavenly?
The Indonesian island of Bali not only has beaches and water that will wow you, but it also has many other awe-inspiring sights. Marvel at the Hindu temples, mountains, blue lagoons, and more. Your experience on this island will create once in a lifetime moments and memories.
Bar Harbor, Maine – United States
This little port town can be a great way to enjoy the ocean and Maine’s many coastal islands. You can walk the piers and beaches together, experience delicious seafood and local cuisine, bird watch, fish, shop, or travel to other close-by coastal islands.
Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
