Do you want to get away with your partner for some one-on-one time? Or are you planning a honeymoon and need some inspiration?
There are thousands of locations worldwide that market themselves as romantic, but many couples want something more than a few restaurants that give you a complimentary rose when you sit down.
So, where should you go if you want to undertake a romantic holiday with your partner? Here are some top ideas for those planning trips in 2023.
With its crescent-shaped beach that overlooks crisp, clear water, Waikiki is an ideal area to visit for a spot of romance under the beautiful Hawaiian sun.
Whether you are staying at one of the Outrigger Resorts or in a bed and breakfast, Waikiki is the perfect location for couples who love the sea or want to see some tropical fish via snorkeling.
Have you ever heard the phrase ‘It’s like Christmas in Aspen?’
Set on a mountain, Aspen is an enchanting setting, making it ideal for honeymooners that may not be fans of hot climates.
The Rocky Mountains provide the perfect setting for outdoor adventures, including snowboarding, hiking, and skiing. As well as this, Aspen offers cozy cabins and boutique hotels, which can help to create a sense of intimacy and romance.
As mentioned before, not all romantic sites have to be warm.
Alaska exudes romance from its rugged landscape, glaciers, and ice-kissed mountains. Much like the other locations, Anchorage offers hikes, wildlife viewing, and stunning views, except if you visit Alaska, you can also engage in some dogsledding with some athletic and stunning huskies!
