Due to the abundance of everyone else’s lists of “Most Romantic Destinations” I decided to make a compilation of a number of well known and not so well known lists of romantic places to go for Valentine’s Day:
US News and World Report‘s Travel section – Charleston, Cape Cod, Key West, Sedona, Savannah, Lana’i, Napa Valley, Aspen, Kauai, Maui.
TripAdvisor.com – Honolulu, New Orleans, Carmel, Las Vegas, Miami Beach, Maui, Charleston, Kauai, Palm Springs, Savannah, Key West, Sanibel Island, Napa Valley, Monterrey, Oahu, Key Largo, Marco Island, Newport Beach
Avon Colorado, Sedona Arizona, Maui, New Orleans, Lake Tahoe, Santa Fe, and Niagra Falls, are a few of the 50 places recommended by Yahoo.com Travel. They succeeded in finding at least one romantic spot in each of the 50 states.
The Travel Channel says: Islamorada Florida, Phoenix Arizona, St Croix USVI, and for the more adventurous Vietnam, Belize, South Africa, and British Columbia.
How about USA Today? Savannah GA, Santa Fe NM, New Orleans LA, Bar Harbor Maine, Naples FL, Mendocino CA, Charleston, Honolulu.
How about the least romantic (stupid ideas) places to go for romance? Topping the list were Detroit (the scenery), Chicago (the constant gunfire), Houston’s Ship Channel (no Niagra Falls), and Laredo TX (most likely to be kidnapped by Mexican drug cartel).
Well folks, that’s the best the world wide web could do. I’m sure there are many other better spots you could name. Feel free to do so in the comments!
The one’s I’d recommend are:
Key West Florida – Hyatts Sunset Harbor Resort
Sedona Arizona – Sedona Vacation Club at Los Abrigados
