8. Sullivan Catskills, New York
If you want to feel just like the main characters of the movie “Dirty Dancing”, you should definitely visit the Sullivan Catskills in New York. Even though the resort that served as an inspiration for the movie mentioned above is now closed, it’s still a movie-perfect romantic getaway and you can book a room in a historic inn.
For instance, the Arnold House, a place that was first built in 1851, is renovated and ready to serve its guests. Even though fall is the time when everything is full of vibrant colors, you shouldn’t skip visiting it during summer.
That is because in August they host the Woodstock Music Festival, which will surely make you and your partner have the “time of your life!”
7. Grand Junction, Colorado
Even though this place is not as popular as others on this list, we totally recommend it! That is because it is the place where two of the most impressive rivers, the Gunnison River and the Colorado River, meet.
If you crave a romantic getaway that will also give you plenty of exercise, you can take your significant other on a dreamy walk in the Colorado National Monument, which is a national park that will amaze you!
It has more than 20,000 acres of rock formations and canyons, so be ready to have fun and torch some calories as well! Who says that you can’t spend some quality time with your partner while you’re breaking a sweat together?
For a nice and fascinating dinner, we suggest trying the region’s Two Rivers Winery and Chateau. The food is great and the wine is divine!
The best part is that you won’t have to worry about getting home after drinking too many glasses of Chardonnay!

4. Maui, Hawaii
Many years ago, when people wanted to feel close to their partners and enjoy some romantic time together, they would go to Niagara Falls, because it was considered to be the “honeymoon capital of the world”.
A lot of time has passed, however, and people have changed as well. Nowadays, one of their favorite “Romantic Getaway” destinations is a more tropical place, such as Maui, Hawaii.
The tropical weather is absolutely great and the date night options are endless! For example, you can watch the sunrise or the sunset from the Haleakala National Park, or you can go to the beach to catch a nice tan.
If you are feeling adventurous, you can spend your day snorkeling or swimming in the ocean. Whichever activity you choose to do, you will have a lot of fun on your romantic getaway!

You can relax your muscles and spend time with your loved ones at the same time because you have the possibility to choose a one-hour long couple’s massage. The whole thing might cost you around $100, but we promise you it is worth it!
If nature is one of your favorite places, we’ve got you! Take your partner’s hand and head to Grand Canyon National Park, or make a wish while you’re watching a shooting star during a desert tour.
If you are a true wanderer, make sure to get a bike and explore the places near you! The view is absolutely breathtaking!
2. Fort Worth, Texas
If all you want is to relax and soak in a heart-shaped jacuzzi and admire the antique stockyards, reserving a room at the Lockheart Gables B&B is a good option.
According to many travelers, this frontier town is a great romantic getaway for couples who want to feel young again. You can visit the Fort Worth Zoo or the Six Flags theme park.
If the zoo doesn’t sound appealing to you, let us convince you! Besides being the only one in the country that carries all four great ape species, it also has another asset: weddings.
For instance, Martha Stewart Weddings participated in a Fort Worth wedding reception, which featured the appearances of many reptilians and floating animals.
